Why is leadership important in general practice? Read the PMA article here.

An intensive one-day workshop for those in leadership roles who wish to better explore and understand the impact they can make on those around them to develop a better business. All participants will discover things about themselves and gain a fundamental insight into how they can have a greater leadership impact. They will explore some of the critical issues that are associated with influencing a community of people to move towards higher objectives.

An intensive workshop that will assist you in becoming the best leader that you can be.

This short course will provide leadership training in the skills required to manage yourself and other people, and demonstrates how excellent leadership transforms organisations. There are major challenges facing the leaders of today who seek to shape organisations for tomorrow. New models of leadership are emerging to address these challenges, and these developments require a different approach to thinking. There is also an increasing demand for ethical and engaging leadership that enhances the performance and well-being of employees, as well as the performance of the organisation.

The core objectives of the workshop will ensure delegates have:

  • A clear and confident grasp of their leadership style through achieving enhanced self-awareness of their strengths and how you can build on them.
  • Understanding of the current paradigms for leadership, and the implications for individual development and organisational change.
  • Apply the knowledge and skills learnt, to develop their own employee’s, colleague’s performance and well-being, as well as the growth or change of the organisation.

The day will unfold with conversations and collaborative insights, all developed through group activities, supplemented by robust theory underpinnings, peer-coaching and self -discovery.

Aims & Objectives:

  • Understanding the kind of leader you need to be in order to drive high performance
  • Explore the principles of Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a team
  • Practice some tools for creating a high-performance culture
  • Understand the impact of leadership behaviour and style on the performance of individuals and teams


Pre-reading‘The Five Dysfunctions of a Team’ – Patrick Lencioni

The module will be delivered as an interactive session with practical guidance to enable participants to map the techniques and outcomes onto their own practice. Group work is provided on all aspects of the programme so that participants develop their understanding of the topics by interacting with colleagues from other practices.
