This development course aims to prepare and encourage new consultants and senior trainees in O&G to be effective leaders in their specialty and in their wider organisations.It will focus on leading a safe team, with a variety of topics ranging from negotiation, resilience and conflict resolution to review of the relevance of personality on leadership style (facilitated by completion of a pre-course Myers-Briggs indicator).
