Leadership One-day Masterclass

This is a unique opportunity to access a place to develop your leadership knowledge and skills via our empirical leadership programme. This has been piloted and evaluated in several NHS organisations.

The masterclass will cover a self-assessment of your leadership stage and an introduction to the leadership development framework, which has been developed from primary research and the evidence base around leadership identity and policy underpinning practice.

The masterclass is delivered by iHV Head of Department, Education and Quality Dr Karen Stansfield, who developed the masterclass as part of her doctoral studies.


To enable you to consider where you are on your leadership journey and introduce you to a leadership development model to support you in articulating your leadership role and further developing your leadership identity.


  • to identify your own individual stage of leadership development looking at the Day and Harrison (2007) leader, relational, collective stages of leadership identity;
  • to become familiar with the leadership development framework created through empirical research specifically focused on how health visitors understand the social processes of leadership.

The Leadership Masterclass is also a useful taster for the full iHV Leadership Development Programme.
