The programme provides theoretical and practical leadership development, focussing on developing understanding of leadership and management at three levels: the intrapersonal (understanding yourself and developing yourself as a leader), the interpersonal (working with and leading others, groups and teams) and the organisational/system level (looking at complexity and change). Our approach to leadership development aims to provide you with a broad-based theoretical and conceptual framework which you can use to apply to your own, others and organisational leadership and management practical situations. We take a unique, case study approach where we consider all aspects of health professionals’ activities from a leadership and management perspective.
