Abstract

In 2014, the King’s Fund and Centre for Creative Leadership made the case for collective leadership as the key to unlocking cultural change throughout the NHS. The report suggests that the bigger prize is to put in place the collective leadership approach required to transform how health and care are delivered across local health systems. This dissertation is a first attempt to identify a solution that will assist the National Health Service (NHS) and health care organisations as they attempt to deliver safe, effective, high quality and compassionate care whilst facing unprecedented financial and service pressures. The purpose of this proposal is to offer a new phenomenological model designed to examine the lived world of the Shropshire Stags Unified Rugby Team players within a collective context. This proposal will use a constructionism epistemological approach that links directly to a hermeneutic phenomenological and collective leadership theoretical perspective and methodology. The proposed method of delivery is related to the phenomenological approach that ensures the participant and researcher focuses on the participant’s story in relation to the unified rugby team. The participants’ stories will be collected using a series of one to one interviews. The first round of interviews will be conducted using semi-structured questions. Answers will then be analysed between the researcher and player during a more reflective session. This session will ascertain if the emerging themes are accurate. After the second phase has concluded, a final round of one to one interviews with selected participants will be conducted. These themes will then be entered on to a themed construction table. Each table will be assessed against the twenty principles collective leadership process (2O P). The final results will show contextual themes in the player’s phronesis demonstrating how their personal impact affects the team’s collective leadership paradigm. These results will be of interest to the NHS and other health and care organisations, as they transition to a collective leadership model.
