Vulnerability based trust. Do you have a culture where team members can say "I am really not very good at this"? Move fast, try it, learn, fail, do it again and in doing so use failure and people's vulnerability to build your trust and relationships. #NAPC18 @NAPC_NHS

Use the (work) force says Jedi Knight @marshall_johnny! Have a common purpose, opportunity to develop & enable autonomy #primarycarehome #NAPC18 #FutureNHS
