Code: PCC/21/87 Healthy Conversation Skills - Behaviour Change

Hi ! How are you?

There seems to be a misconception around 'helping people' and a tendency to move towards specific training that is overly complicated, sometimes daunting and often ends up sitting on the 'shelf' - The Healthy Conversation Skills training aims to de-mystify the art of 'giving help' and build confidence in everyone.

This 3 hour, fully interactive virtual training is designed to encourage and support the philosophy behind Making Every Contact Count (MECC) with added peer support, networking opportunities and a desire to implement what they learn in their daily lives


We all have a shared responsibility to be healthy in the conversations we have with our residents/customers and each other. We need to invest time in the development of our skills now while there is a collective consideration of health and inequality made so evident in the current pandemic.

If people are empowered to be proactive and opportunistic in their approach to helping others with more complex issues like mental health and sexual health: they will need to be confident in having a basic conversation; using reflection, open discovery questions and a person centred, asset based approach.

Code: PCC/20/732 Portsmouth Future Leaders

The Covid-19 pandemic has created the opportunity for a redesign of scope, delivery and branding of what was formerly called the New Manager Induction Programme.

Future Leaders departs from the old academic model of monthly, trainer-delivered workshops to a learner-driven, more vocational model featuring:

  • digital self-study
  • facilitated virtual seminars and action learning sets
  • tutorial support
  • 360 degree feedback (optional)

From a pedagogical perspective, this 'little and often', non-linear approach to learning better reflects the way adult professionals learn and develop skills and new behaviours in their practice.

As Future Leaders is not limited physically by class size, an unlimited number of participants can join at any time AND stay involved in the community as long as they want. 

Staying on Future Leaders
Once participants have achieved their personal objectives as set out in their learner profile, they are very welcome to stay on and contribute to the growth and development of the Future Leaders community. This could take the form of mentoring other learners, facilitating seminars, contributing content to the digital courses, or any other valuable contribution.
