Advanced Clinical Leadership Skills


Advanced Clinical Leadership Skills in an age of change, transition and transformation

Tim Dalmau and Michael Grinder will conduct an advanced training event in Adelaide for those in clinical leadership and management positions who seek to excel at their leadership skills, March 12th  – 13th, 2015 in Adelaide.

They will be delivering a special training event for those who wish to be more effective in their people leadership.

Why should you attend?

Across Australia, NZ and the UK health systems are in deep transformation. In this changing and sometimes confusing setting, leaders of health care are required to be at the forefront of and manage the delivery of high quality, safe health care for patients.

Being an elegant and effective clinical leader requires skills not typically associated with excellence in clinical practice, yet few receive the training and support required. It requires a good leader to

  • Manage themselves
  • Influence individuals and teams
  • Bridge the gap between the ‘organization’ and the day to day lived clinical experience ‘on the floor’
  • Design,lead and manage change and transition
  • Network and act with political intelligence

As managers, clinical leaders are simultaneously asked to drive patient-centered care of the highest standards in environments of fiscal constraint, continual and sometimes competing change initiatives.

This advanced training will focus on self-management, one to one ‘influence’ skills and how to get the best out of teams in an environment of continual change, transition and system transformation.

Who is this workshop for?

  • Medical staff /leaders
  • Nursing staff/leaders
  • Allied health staff/leaders
  • Executives, senior managers and professionals in health systems
  • Anyone who leads, manages or supervises clinicians
  • Those entrusted with change in health systems

What will I receive?

What do people say?

”This was the very best training experience I have ever had. I am so appreciative to Michael and Tim. Tim’s insight into context and systems is superb. Michael skills are world class. They call themselves the Macro and Micro and this is exactly what they are: a real synergy where the whole is more than the sum of the parts.

“Gave me an understanding about things that had frustrated me in the past and what I can do about them. I really learned about leadership in practice today. They should make this part of all training for anyone leading clinicians.

This is the most practical and useful training I have ever done when it comes to dealing with health professionals. Fantastic! It has restored my confidence in myself and what I can now do with situations (and people) that overwhelmed me before.
