Middle Leader Professional Development Program 2022


This program supports doctors who lead or manage teams in clinical/health settings which require them to both lead ‘up’ and ‘down’ to find their own leadership voice and style, and lead with confidence in complex collaborative environments.

The program provides fourteen hours of leadership education delivered via four webinar modules, a group tutorial session, and a one-on-one coaching session across four to six weeks.

The interactive webinars are led by a highly-experienced leadership consultant and coach, and include expert presentations, group discussions and reflections and skills practice in small groups.

Participants work on a personal leadership mission statement and three personal action plans across the duration of the program: a personal leadership development plan, a holistic leadership plan, and a professional network health check. These plans support the direct application of learning into specific leadership skills and behaviours that can be used immediately in participants' current roles.

  • Creating a strong leadership identity
