FoNS Inspire Improvement Fellow

The impact for me of undertaking the fellowship has been that I’ve become more self-aware. It’s given me immense self-confidence in working with the ‘unknown’, whether that be a new team or a new innovation/situation. I have learnt to be authentic and that it’s OK to say you don’t know something. I now focus on the process and the experience for both staff and patients, not just on the outcomes. I look at everything with a different lens; you learn and you grow together with your team.

As a co-facilitator [of the Inspire Improvement programme], I experienced the whole programme with another different lens. It was a wonderful experience to see others grow using the creativity and share our experiences as fellows.

When you change a person, that has a ripple effect on their teams and on their organisation as well. The Inspire Improvement Fellowship is unique, I cannot go back to how I was before I started the programme.
