Dr Laura Brown MBA, Independent Management and Training Consult! ant


This course, designed specifically for the Pharmaceutical, Healthcare and Device industries, will be relevant for you if you have, or are soon to be, appointed to a leadership role, or to existing leaders and managers who wish to enhance their leadership skills to a higher level as well as professionals aspiring to a leadership or management role. This course is ideal for those with identified leadership needs especially:

- Team leaders

- Project leaders and managers

- Heads of departments

- Managers who have received little or no formal leadership training

- Anyone who wants to develop leadership skills to achieve greater success


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. In future, to d! evelop and even sustain your career you almost certainly will ! need to gain and build your leadership skills in order to perform in your existing role or to gain promotion. Technical skills alone are unlikely to do this. Have you or your manager identified this need for you?

As companies turn more towards team working, both in departmental and multi-functional teams to maximise an organisation's performance Pharmaceutical employers are now 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 differen! t skills of leading your staff or teams in order 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.

After the course you will be able to have access to a 30 day helpline with the work- shop leader.

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