Heathcotes Goes for Gold!
'Going for gold' is our annual two-day leadership and management training event which aims to promote and improve quality standards across our services and encourages our teams to continue striving for ‘gold standard’. Currently, 92% of our services have achieved gold standard, which we were proud to celebrate at this year’s event!
Going for gold is attended by our Service Managers and Senior Managers across the company and aims to reinforce our future visions and goals and strengthens companywide relationships. This year we headed to Warwick, where we held several workshops over the course of the two days and also participated in our much anticipated team building event.
One of key focuses this year was welcoming the new Southern Service Managers from Chatsworth Care, who we have recently acquired, and integrating them into the Heathcotes Group. The workshops this year covered many interesting and informative topics. For example, our Commissioning Team hosted several interactive workshops with a focus on networking and relationship building. Dr Burbidge and Cathy Conway, Clinical Psychologist & Specialist Occupational Therapist, held a workshop on Personality Disorder, following the opening of our two specialist personality disorder services, and even gave us a taster of some DBT therapy; we were lucky enough to participate in some mindfulness sessions!
Our team building exercise this year was 'The Crystal Maze'. This involved plenty of challenges to promote team work, problem solving and a little bit of healthy competition! The final challenge was in the Crystal Maze itself where we were tasked with collecting as many gold tickets as possible. Well done to the East Midlands Team for winning 189 gold tickets in the Crystal Maze! These tickets were turned into pounds and were donated to a charity of their choice; Make a Wish Foundation.
After a busy day we rounded the evening off with a group dinner and got competitive again with an in-house pub quiz!
We would like to thank everyone who attended, and hope you are all looking forward to next year as much as we are!
