There has to be a different way: Leadership challenges in children’s social care

Last month, we were delighted to welcome Steve Goodman as the speaker of our fourth Leadership Seminar. We run these seminars to expose our audience of people from across the Frontline network to leading thinkers in social work and system influencers.

Steve Goodman has led social work services across the country. He co-founded Morning Lane Associates, and co-devised and led the implementation of Reclaiming Social Work, promoting the ideas of the model both in the UK and abroad. In recent years, Steve has increasingly concentrated on themes around leadership and organisational culture.

At the seminar, Steve discussed leadership ideas that promote strong values, and enable a distributive, supportive and creative culture – acknowledging that it is not easy to do this.
