The nurturing role of leaders: Dr Navina Evans


We spoke to Dr Navina Evans, Chief Executive of the East London Foundation Trust, about the importance of nurturing as a leader.

She told us about the moments of being nurtured herself in difficult times and the importance of leaders being visible and supportive during this time, and willing to talk about fear, anger, grief and pain.

Navina discussed the importance of several principles: being open and transparent, creating a learning environment, sharing vulnerability and holding on to the positive changes emerging during this time.
