Introduction from
Helen Howard

Investing time in your development will help to build resilience that is much needed after such a difficult year. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do to support our patients every day.

The Trust is committed to supporting nurse leadership in all areas and the ThinkOn® Stretch Thinking, Bigger, Better, Bolder programme you have been enrolled on will give you insights into how your thinking impacts on you and your achievements. I would encourage you to think about the objectives you would like to set yourselves and how you will action these, using the tools that have been shared with you over 30, 60 and 90 goals.

This is your opportunity to test out new skills in an environment that provides a safe space where learning is the focus. I hope that you have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity that has been presented to you and I look forward to catching up with you to hear your feedback.

About the Course

This short digital course will introduce you to two of the ThinkOn® Thinking frameworks. The first will give you insights into how your thinking impacts on you and your achievements. The second will help you identify where to focus your thinking to make the differences you want. You will discover ways to scale your thinking, a method to give you numerous solutions to any problem, and master goal defining techniques that you can use straight away.

The course lasts around 4 hours and includes a number of practical exercises to get you applying your new thinking immediately. At the end of the course, through a virtual coaching session, you will set yourself a challenge and create an actionable plan for the next 30, 60 or 90 days. Once mastered, the skills you learn on this course will boost your thinking daily.

Everyone is capable of thinking in a bigger, better and bolder way.


It’s about understanding your thinking and having the tools and techniques at your fingertips to use every day. The principle is simple - if you improve how you think, and the questions you ask you will achieve better results.
