Leadership and Management Course Overview

The RCoA Leadership and Management series covers a spectrum of topics designed specifically for Anaesthetists that are senior trainees and consultants.

The workshops are a balance of plenary sessions, group work and exercises with emphasis on real life issues, open discussions, up-to-date information and will provide time for one-to-one discussions. Each is designed to encourage and facilitate participation and give an insight into personal strengths, development needs and the skills necessary to have a real impact as a leader in today’s NHS.

Leadership and Management: Personal Effectiveness and self-management

In order to manage others you need to understand your own management style. Learn how to make the best use of your time and making use of the resources at your disposal, in order to perform to the best of your ability in your workplace.

At the end of the course, participants will have:

  • gained insight into their own personal preferences, strengths and weaknesses
  • understand how they can improve or use their existing skills to increase their impact and effectiveness within their teams
