Key topics covered are: the dynamics of teams; how to chair effectively; communication for leadership; managing conflict; coaching vs mentoring; staff development; change management and how to negotiate effectively.

he days are spaced to enable you to complete a variety of tasks in between sessions and to enhance your learning.  Please ensure that you complete the pre-course work and the tasks.

Prior to session 1 participants are expected to 'dip' into the reading list, reflect on their favourite leader and complete some tasks using the templates provided.  Other tasks include - reflection on a scenario with your team; reflection on a change management project that you have observed; reflection on a change management project that you have LED; reflection on a recent communication; reflection on 'chairing at/of meetings'.

For session 10, participants are expected to share the outcome of a project that they have completed as part of the course that demonstrates their understanding of the leadership theory taught on the course.  Please note that the posters need to be emailed as either a PowerPoint slide or as a word document to NES Pharmacy for processing. Please do not print your poster.
