A word from our HPMA London Development Director – Rachael Tyler
These are exciting times for HPMA London Academy as we are 3 months into delivery of our new development programme working with a number of existing and new providers, delivering varied and stimulating events. Please continue to provide us with as much feedback as you can so we continually shape the program to deliver your needs. In addition we are currently working on the final design of the AsPire program at developing our future Deputy and Associate Directors. We will formally announce the program shortly and we will be inviting applications throughout the month of August.
Finally, i am holding two scoping events with Senior HR/OD practioners on the development of the new network. I have been struck by the enthusiasm and creative thinking on this and look forward to finalising arrangements for the network.

This month, Joanne Spencer delivered a great workshop on Leading and Managing Successful Change, helping participants think through what neuroscience can tell us about change and how this helps us prepare and lead people through change processes.
What they thought?
"Networking, interactive nature of session, hearing challenges that other organisations face.”
"The neuroscience part was fascinating, the change models were also very useful and the general table discussions. Joanne's delivering of the subject matter was great"
"I found it useful discussing the SCARF model with peers and hearing about practical tools such as the circle of influence. I liked that the trainer gave lots of real examples to support the theory."
Dr Keith Holdaway devilered an insightful session, combining some of the finer points of metric analysis on real life case studies. Kindly hosted by DACBeachcroft
What they thought?
“Presenting data - fast but funny and got the message across about demonstrating a trend over a suitable period. Reading and interpreting the variance report was a confidence boost Recognising unquantifiable benefits and HR limitations on expressing them”
“The group work was very helpful as I do struggle with understanding numbers. Also the trainer was very good in terms of not putting anyone on the spot as I was worried about this before attending. The training had an informal atmosphere which again helped to relay my fears of the subject matter.”
Lucinda Carney gave a wonderful demonstration of making a positive impact. Kindly hosted by Moorfields Hospital
What they thought?
“It was good to know the influencing approaches, and the effects when they are not properly used (Disempowering), or when they are properly used (Empowering). Also, I believe the workshop focused on the theme, which is 'Creating a Positive Impact'.”
"Networking and I really liked the Enrich your Influencing Styles model which I will definitely be referring to in the future."
Working with staff and teams in conflict – a new approach
2-day workshop, 8th - 9th November, London
Conflict at work is on the increase and with the resulting impact on staff morale, grievance procedures, bullying and harassment and quality of patient care, the consequences can be costly and time consuming.
This two-day workshop applies the unique Tavistock approach to the problems of working with staff and teams in conflict, and with seemingly ‘dysfunctional’ teams.
The workshop is aimed at HR and OD practitioners who are tasked with solving these seemingly intractable problems. The session will give practitioners new and valued skills to build the capability of their organisations.
Price: £650, this unique 2-day workshop has been discounted for HPMA members.
