Just about to embark on a new venture in Leeds called Progress School, providing pay what you can professional and personal development. Progress School offers:
- A confidential and supportive environment in which to plan your personal and professional development
- Time to develop a vision for the ‘ideal you’ and to learn more about the ‘real you’ – how you are perceived by others
- Recognition of strengths and gaps – those potentials that you have not yet fully realised
- A learning agenda – identify what you need to learn and how you are going to learn it to bridge the gap between ‘real’ and ‘ideal’
- Access to a network of fellow Progress School members who will commit to helping you learn
- A chance to experiment – to try out new behaviours and skills – to see if they work for you
- Develop new practices that help you make progress
Progress School is designed to offer you a flexible process to support your development. The more you attend the more you are likely to get from it – but there is no curriculum to follow – just a process of reflection and action to engage with.

- Front liners are capable of taking on far more responsibility than the boxes the system puts them in.
- Front liners are very modest about their own abilities and skills.
- Front liners want to do a great job for patients.
- Managers must learn to let go of more of the power they have thus allowing front liners to get on with the job.
- Managers must be there for support when front liners need it – they are well capable of judging when they need help.
Sensible reflections from Trevor Gay’s Simplicity blog
I am sure that you will agree with much of it.
But do you ACT on it?
Or do you let ‘the system’ get in the way?

Thinking of setting up a mentoring scheme? Here are some top tips to improve the chances of success:
- Educate mentees in how to choose and use a mentor – this will provide a better return on investment than training people in how to be good mentors
- Offer a mentor matching service – but always encourage people to look for their own mentors first – this ensures relevance
- Always encourage people to check out a few potential mentors rather than allocating them one
- Train people who have already been approached to become mentors – avoid training a whole bunch of people who want to mentor, but for whom there is no demand
