Why you should attend

Working in the Pharmaceutical and Device industries has become increasingly challenging and fast moving. Previously, excellence in technical areas would have guaranteed a successful career. Now, to develop and even sustain your career you will almost certainly need to build your leadership skills to perform in your existing role or gain promotion. As companies turn more towards team working, both in departmental and multi-functional teams, to maximise an organisation’s performance, employers are looking for people who can genuinely lead their staff, departments, projects and organisations to success.

Leadership skills are an extremely valuable commodity and need to be learned (rarely are they naturally acquired). As a leader you are expected to inspire vision, develop commitment, retain staff and lead your team/department/organisation to achieve outstanding performance, thus advancing your career.

This comprehensive two day course will introduce you to the core concepts of what makes an excellent leader – in the context of the Pharmaceutical industry – and how to apply the different skills of leading your staff or team to maximise results. You will become competent and familiar in a range of well recognised leadership techniques which you will then go on to use on a daily basis when you return to the workplace, enabling you to perform at a higher level.

This course makes extensive use of interactive discussions, non-threatening psychometrics, and stimulating Pharmaceutical industry case studies.

Also relevant for those working in medical device/animal health industries
