About the Leadership Navigation Series:

At Healthcare Skills Training International and Brain First International, we developed the Post-Graduate Diploma course in Leadership because we believe that ‘being in charge’ doesn’t make or guarantee that anyone is a successful leader.

As leaders, you need to learn not only about how to lead but how we can consistently implement the best leadership in practice even in the most challenging situations.

Success breeds success and a desire for more and more. So, in response to our course delegates requests to continue the leadership journey we have developed:

This Webinar series provides further essential tools to manage the ever-changing challenges of leadership for success and offers clear thinking which we all know can be difficult to achieve and easy to neglect.

Leadership can be a lonely road and we all need new ideas and inspiration to guide our teams. These webinars are designed to offer review of current issues and a forum for sharing experiences in a safe supportive environment

About Effective Virtual Leadership: Leadership Navigator Webinar Series – 21st July, 2021:

Leadership and Management in the Virtual World has become the norm, and while true that many of the traditional skills we had in the Face-to-Face world may transfer successfully into the virtual working environment, there are adjustments to be made. We need to find ways to put back into our communications what the distance and virtual world takes out. The more efficient we can be as leaders and managers in the virtual world, the more we can leverage the benefits of working in the virtual space.

Joining us to explore how to succeed in the `virtual world will be Jill Brown and `Jan Patience, PR, advertising and digital expert.  Dr. Mateen Jiwani, GP, innovator, digital health specialist and head faculty of Healthcare Skills Training International’s Postgraduate Diploma in Remote Consulting and Diane Irvine, Managing Director of Healthcare Skills Training International.

This interactive webinar will help you learn:

how to appear more confident in a virtual setting and how making small adjustments can improve the way you come across
a mixture of common-sense advice from a broadcaster’s point of view (we are all, in effect, broadcasters now…) and voice/breathing technique.
effective clinical leadership skills in the digital space
We look forward to “e” seeing you all soon!

Past Webinar:

About Women in Clinical Leadership: Managing the Glass Cliff – 16th of June, 2021:

Building on Healthcare Skills Training International’s successful Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Leadership course, it was evident that there was a need for a women in leadership forum to address the current issues of “managing the glass cliff.”

‘The term ‘glass cliff’ and its relation to the term ‘glass ceiling’ are often referred to in the context of women leaders. While the glass ceiling refers to the invisible barrier to advancement; the glass cliff refers to the common situation that many women leaders face i.e. being given the opportunity of promotion in the midst of a crisis and/or having to step in to handle a situation with a high risk of failure. Everyone in management will experience their own glass cliff. However, it appears that women encounter them earlier in their leadership role than their male counterparts.

Regardless of your company/healthcare position, this seminar series will help you to navigate a clear path over your ‘glass cliffs.’

This interactive webinar will help you:

• Recognise and address your glass cliff

• Use Human factors and Neuroscience strategies to manage your cliff-hangers

• Have the opportunity to ask questions during our Q+A, live chat sessions
