Leadership and Management: Personal Effectiveness

Provided by

About the course


The RCoA has developed a series of interactive workshops covering a wide range of topics designed specifically for Anaesthetists (both senior trainees and Consultants).  Covering topics such as NHS policy, personal development, management jargon and what it takes to be a leader, delegates will be given an insight into the personal strengths, development needs and the skills required to deliver impact as a leader in today’s NHS.

The workshops are a balance of plenary sessions, group work and exercises with the emphasis on real life issues, open discussion, up-to-date information and will provide time for one-to-one discussions. Each is designed to encourage and facilitate participation. Delegates can attend any or all workshops in the Leadership and Management series, although we recommend the two day Introduction Leadership and Management: the Essentials, as an excellent pointer to which workshops would suit you best.

Personal Effectiveness

The purpose of the Personal Effectiveness workshop is to offer delegates the chance to explore their personal preferences, strengths and potential weaknesses, and understand how they could improve or use their existing skills to increase their impact and effectiveness within their teams.

Topics Covered

  • I didn’t become a doctor to do this!
  • How the NHS works; the story so far
  • What you bring to the party: the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
