CPD Connect: Introduction to Leadership Workshop

Great leadership skills are crucial and most helpful when navigating times of great ambiguity, uncertainty and challenge, all of which seem to be more and more prevalent in our day-to-day working lives.


The words leadership and management are often used in the same sentence but what is the difference? Understanding how you maybe limiting yourself at present, by not working in leader mode is key to successfully navigating the world of work. When it comes to leadership it is often said that emotional intelligence is the difference that makes the difference, this workshop will explore emotional intelligence and in particular self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management.


The course will help you make sense of what leadership is, help you develop your personal leadership approach and how you can apply it in your day-to-day practice. You will be encouraged to learn what it is like to be on the receiving end of you.



CPD Connect invite you to attend a full day workshop commencing at 09:30 in our offices at Westport in Edinburgh on Friday 15 March.  The workshop would be interactive, blending leadership theory with practical day-to-day techniques, examples, participant contributions and group work. We would incorporate action planning and review sessions into the workshop so that the participants are actively encouraged to apply their learning into their day jobs. 

Who should attend:

First5 GP’s who want to develop their leadership skills and have greater confidence in handling ambiguity, uncertainty and challenge.

Cost:

This is a fully funded workshop - please enter your CCT date in the special requirements box when booking to authenticate your funding.
