Doctors and public health specialists are always asked to lead, whatever stage of their career. This may be anything from leading a team, chairing a meeting, through to leading an organisation or system. Leaders are made, not born, and are nurtured through a lifetime’s commitment to growing self-awareness and to cultivating the competencies, qualities and behaviours which effect change and impact outcomes.
Whatever context you are working in as a public health leader or as a doctor, public health and doctors leadership development takes time and effort and isn’t something which can be taught on a medical leadership course or from reading a book. It requires you to embody certain qualities which are unique to yourself, to play to your own strengths, and to develop and support others.
How coaching can help develop medical leadership skills
My medical leadership coaching programmes are bespoke to you and your needs. They are a form of 1:1 training and development for doctors and public health leaders. They can cover medical management as well as medical leadership, and also address issues relating to medical careers. My leadership development programmes for doctors are suitable for medical directors, clinical leaders, clinical directors in primary care and in secondary or tertiary care, and for doctors who are leading across integrated care systems (ICS) roles.
For public health leaders, you are almost certainly working in complexity across systems. I can help you to navigate your way skilfully through ambiguous environments where the impact of your efforts may take decades to have a significant impact.
It you’re looking for a medical leadership course, or a medical leadership training programme, I can help to support and stretch you to fulfil your potential and grow your confidence. We would work together in partnership for a number of sessions to help you to meet your medical leadership and career challenges and to ensure that you have lasting professional satisfaction for years to come.
