The World Academy of Medical Leadership

1 Day Medical Leadership and Management

 
1 Day Medical Leadership and Management

Aims

This one-day course focuses on specific medical leadership styles and behaviours, supporting you to undertake leadership diagnostic questionnaires to learn more about your default leadership style, when you should change it and which other styles may be more effective to use in some situations.

 Knowing about the difference between Leadership and Management, doctors can identify the skills required by others (to manage finance, equipment and resources) and the types of leadership required by themselves to build high performing teams in healthcare.

It is only after knowing about oneself can doctors have the highest influence in the development of the wider healthcare team. We will guide you to develop a wide range of leadership styles to help motivate and inspire your team and to towards establishing a high performing team.

What doctors say about this course:

“the fundamental role of different leadership styles combined with professional communication skills … is what I will take away from this day”

“knowing about leadership styles in different situations and when to use these approaches and how it will impact on the team”

“how to be a leader in a crisis … perfect overview of types of leadership needed”

“teams perform better when they possess collective efficacy or belief that their team can succeed in uncertain conditions”

“leaders are not born, they are made and each and every one of us can develop styles and skills to support and have empathy for others”

“I have learned that leadership is a cornerstone of my practice and the importance of continuously improving my skills in this area”

“a leader needs to make the right decisions at the right time and use leadership styles and approaches to communicate this with the wider team, patients and family members”

“a great day, thank you to everyone on the team for showing us how learning about leadership is possible and accessible to all of us”
