Retaining the Passion: Leaders and Followers.

First, Clare and Craig catch up and discuss their reasons for choosing this fortnight’s episode “Leaders and Followers”. Next, they are joined by two fantastic nurse leaders at different stages in their leadership journeys: Paul Jebb and Charlotte Jakab-Hall.

Paul is an Associate Chief Nurse for Patient Experience and Engagement at Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust. He has extensive formal management and leadership experience and sits on the Royal College of Nursing’s (RCN) Nurses in Management and Leadership Forum’s Steering Committee and RCNi’s Editorial Board. Additionally, Paul sits on the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s professional strategic advisory group. He also has an honorary senior lecturer’s contract at his local university and is Chair of Blackpool Carer’s Centre charity. Additionally, alongside Jeni Watts, Paul is one of the co-coordinators of the “We Are Global Nurses” movement.

Charlotte is a Safe Care Specialist Nurse at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and a Chief Nurse Fellow Alumni. With her colleague, she is also the co-founder of GloSTaRs, Gloucestershire Hospitals Staff Transition & Retention Support Network. Charlotte is also the creator of @BloggersNurse, a global networking platform for nurses and all allied healthcare professionals to share their blog posts, set up to support the Nursing Now Challenge.

Following these interviews, Clare and Craig reflect on their discussions with Paul and Charlotte, their take-home messages, and how they will use these discussions to influence their leader and followership journeys.
