Last updated: 16th May

This year I am focusing on three work areas (Wellbeing Teams, care homes and Community Circles), and my five ways to wellbeing. Here is my blog and short film describing this in more detail. I am using this page, to share what I am working on now, in no particular order:

1) Wellbeing Teams 

This week I have been reviewing what we have been learning about coaching with Jane Pightling, our lead for coaching in the Wellbeing Teams.

I am delighted to be working with Sam Meikle to see how we can develop Humans of Home Care  inspired by her excellent Humans of Healthcare. She starts recording next week.

2) Podcasting

I have been podcasting with Susan Basterfield on self-managing teams and Deliberately Developmental Organisations. Hoping to catch up with Maddy at the end of the week as well.

3) Community Circles

I am working with Harriet on a handbook for Community Circle Connectors who are based within Wellbeing Teams.

4) Care Homes – launching The Butterfly Community with David Sheard

We launched this week – Dementia Awareness Week. You can read more about it here 

5) My Five Ways to Wellbeing

Connect – I am finishing off my Mum’s life story book, and supporting my sister as her chemo buddy.

Take Notice – I am getting back to meditating twice a day after letting this slip recently.

Keep Learning – I am a coach with AltMBA 10 – this is such a great opportunity to learn as well as supporting the students.

Give – My voluntary work is with Community Circles.

Be active – I am getting back into running and will be back at parkrun in the next two weeks.

6) Stained Glass 

The stained glass bunting was not great. Working on a sun catcher now instead.
