Learning from lockdown, an honest conversation.
Recorded Tuesday, 18 May 2021
Detailed Description: This session will explore the findings from a series of conversations Platfform held with publics service and community practioners across Wales during the pandemic. Many of the Lessons from Lockdown (Lessons-from-Lockdown-report.pdf (platfform.org)) are by now familiar: collaboration, focus on what matters and localism flourished but others exposed holes in organisational cultures at odds with trauma informed, healing focussed and asset based ways of working. In particular this session will focus on the leadership challenge ahead as we grapple with the need for certainty without wanting to lose the authentic and creative ways of working that emerged during times of great uncertainty.
