Advanced Leadership

*Course is provisional and will only run if 10 or more delegates are attending*

This course is for more experienced staff wishing to develop more advanced leadership skills.  A Foundation level course is available for those who have not had any leadership development.

Delegates need to attend all 5 days of this course.  Pre-work will be uploaded to the 'Documentation' tab for this course about 2-3 weeks prior to the course.  Please ensure that you download and complete the tasks for Day 1 prior to attending.

The aim of this 5 day course is to enable participants to test some key theories of leadership in the workplace.  This course is aimed at GPs and Pharmacists with more than 3 years post registration experience.  It is based on reflection and exploration of yourself as a leader.  The teaching style is discussion orientated with participants being expected to come equipped with experiences to share with the group.  Participants are expected to do some small tasks prior to and throughout the course, and report back on progress at each session.  As part of the course there are senior healthcare professionals who attend to share their experiences.  Please ensure that you come prepared to ask them questions.

All printed information for the course is available via the 'Documentation' tab.  Prior to Day 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 Day 5, participants are expected to share with the group a poster (template will be provided) that details the outcome of a short project that they have undertaken throughout the course.  The leadership skills developed as part of the project need to be clear within the poster.  Please note that the posters need to be emailed to NES Pharmacy for processing.  They will be enlarged and then printed ready to display at the session.  Participants may be asked for their permission to formally design and print their poster for display at a future conference should the topic be suitable for this purpose.  A poster that deals with sensitive information will not be used for this purpose.

Key topics covered in the course 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.
