    This is Episode 29, with Dr Bola Owolabi, Director of Health Inequalities at NHS England and NHS Improvement,
    COVID-19 has shone a harsh light on some of the inequalities that persist in our society, and Bola has been leading the NHS effort to accelerate progress in tackling this over the last few years in her national role.
    Bola also works as a GP in the Midlands, and has held various leadership roles at local, system and national levels in her career.
     
    Having heard her speak at a few meetings and conferences now, I’ve always come away with an impression of someone who is quietly confident, hugely committed to her purpose of reducing health inequalities, and clearly mindful of bringing other people with her along that journey.

    Episode 28. Backstage with: Hannah Miller

    Leadership starts with leading yourself, and there is no better person to help us understand ourselves than this week's guest- Hannah Miller. Hannah is one of our most popular speakers at Next Generation GP, and you'll see why!
    She's an amazing coach, supporting emerging leaders from all sorts of backgrounds using a strengths based approach to development and finding purpose. She's a fantastic speaker, and was chosen to receive the Vistage Rising Star Award for speaking in 2019.
    She's introduced a lot of Next Gen GPs to a profling tool called StrengthsFinder, developed by Gallup, which offers personalised insights about what you naturally do best.
    So many Next Gen leaders have been amazed by how accurately it describes them, and how it helps them to understand differences in their teams, what they are really good at, and what opportunities they should decline or pursue as a result.

    Her career (3 mins)What is StrengthsFinder? (7.5 mins)Why should we focus on strengths rather than weaknesses? (9 mins)Working with doctor leaders (18 mins)Choosing between opportunities (19.5 mins)Coping at rock bottom (24 mins)Starting her own company (30 mins)Managing her own setbacks and vulnerability (35 mins)Where she finds her energy (40 mins)Quick fire: including favourite books, heroes, and top tips for new leaders (45 mins)
