It is a common belief among junior doctors that finishing specialist exams and achieving a consultant position is the rewarding end of training. And yet all those years of study prioritise clinical excellence, with limited focus on people management skills - critical to being an effective consultant.

How well do you understand your own leadership style, and the impact this has on your colleagues, juniors and the wider team?
How do you deal with your people frustrations to build collaborative behaviours that support patient care?
Do you want to know how to lead inclusively and be part of a speciality that engages the next generation but dread diversity training?
Are you fed up with the generic buzz around burnout but keen to explore your personal triggers and survival strategies?
Are you struggling to manage your millennial trainees and to appreciate their mindset and priorities?

Join us for a different kind of leadership/management training day to explore the following topics:

Know yourself to manage yourself
The value and danger of bias in an acute care setting
Avoiding burnout in an age of digitalisation
Managing millennial trainee

The day will be dynamic, interactive and practical. CPD credits will be applied for (5 credits expected).
