The delivery of successful health and social care services relies on effective leadership. This course takes the perspective that leadership is to be found in the many rather than the few. We are all leaders.
The course will help you recognise and develop your inherent leadership qualities, and have regard for the leadership qualities of others, be they working colleagues or those in formal positions of leadership responsibility.
