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 lead in today’s NHS.

At the end of this course, participants will have:

• enhanced their understanding of how teams work through the introduction of basic tools and frameworks that can be applied to their own teams
• had the opportunity to practice working in a group setting and explore the challenges this can present
• considered the particular challenges and benefits of working in a multi-disciplinary setting.
