    Leadership behaviour from the “very top of the NHS” has led to an increase in bullying, according to an official strategy document produced by an acute trust. East and North Hertfordshire Trust published its new people and organisation strategy in its January board papers. Within it, the report said: “Leadership behaviour from the very top of the NHS, during this time of pressure has led to an increase in accusations of bullying, harassment and discrimination.” In a separate section, the paper noted the difficulties of being a healthcare professional, saying “many staff leave before they need to and many more cite bullying, over work and stress, as reasons for absence and mistakes”.

    The emotion of the team is a sum-total of emotions and feelings that members of the team experience. Left unnoticed, unexpressed, and unattended, these emotions can grow toxic to harm relationships or grossly undermine team’s potential. Leaders have a choice of either noticing those emotions intentionally and intervening constructively when needed or just ignore the emotions to focus only on the outcomes and the process. Tuning into team emotions, fostering productive relationships, building trust, and a conducive environment within the team is the constant work of leadership.

    Those who have read Professor Edmondson's book "The Fearless Organization" will know that psychological safety is required for team high-performance. Psychological safety is defined as "a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes". If you do not feel safe in a group, you are likely to keep ideas to yourself and avoid speaking up, even about risks. Furthermore, if mistakes are held against you, you then look to avoid making mistakes and so stop taking risks, rather than making the most out of your talents. Low psychological safety, therefore, gets in the way of both team performance, innovation, learning, and personal success. For you to be successful in your team, and "as a team", psychological safety is the enabler. In collaboration with professor Amy C. Edmondson, The Fearless Organization has developed 'The Fearless Organization Scan'. This scan maps how team members perceive the level of psychological safety in their closest context. To improve team performance, it helps to know the Psychological Safety levels in your team, as this is a critical predictor of how your team will learn and work together. By improving the level of psychological safety, you significantly increase the likelihood of team success.

    The Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) is a method that can help clinical teams make care safer by combining improved teamwork, clinical best practices, and the science of safety. The Core CUSP toolkit gives clinical teams the training resources and tools to apply the CUSP method and build their capacity to address safety issues. A number of toolkits are available to help clinical teams adopt the CUSP method to make care safer. Most teams will want to start with the Core CUSP Toolkit to learn key principles of the CUSP method. Once you’ve learned the basics, additional toolkits can help you target certain safety issues in specific settings of care. Created for clinicians by clinicians, the Core CUSP toolkit is modular and modifiable to meet individual unit needs. Each module includes teaching tools and resources to support change at the unit level, presented through facilitator notes that take you step by step through the module, presentation slides, tools, and videos.

    Force Field Analysis was created by Kurt Lewin in the 1940s. He used it in his work as a social Psychologist. In the modern world, it is used for making and communicating decisions about whether to go ahead with a change or not. It frames problems in terms of factors or pressures that support the status quo (restraining forces) and those pressures that support change in the desired direction (driving forces). The driving forces must be strengthened or the resisting forces weakened for the change to take effect. A factor can be people, resources, attitudes, traditions, regulations, values, needs, desires, etc. As a tool for managing change, Force Field Analysis helps identify those factors that must be addressed and monitored if change is to be successful. It can be difficult for teams to make decisions about testing new ideas especially when there are a variety of opinions. Force Field Analysis provides a structured approach to decision making which helps teams to consider the forces that are driving the change and those that resist the change.
