Building a strategy for the practice
Module length: Half day
If you have a clear vision of where you want to take your practice but donít know how to get there, or if you feel that there must be a better way to run the practice, then this module will help you. Using the business strategy model from Proaction International, you will gain a clearer understanding of how the practice can achieve its purpose and vision, and know what standards, measurements and training are needed. During this seminar you will be able to put initial ideas onto paper and know how to seek appropriate assistance from other practice members to complete the written strategy.
Developing a Training Needs Analysis for Employees
Module length: Half day

A Training Needs Analysis can help with the Personal Development Plans of all the doctors in the practice and also the Practice Professional Development Plan. It will also help you by:

Giving a clearer concept of what the practice needs to budget for in terms of training.
Aiding development of a fair and equitable training plan.
Helping money for training to be well spent.
Writing Personal Development Plans
Module length: Half day, plus up to one hour one-to-one coaching
Writing a Personal Development Plan has become a hot topic for GPs. We believe that our six years of experience in personal development planning has produced one of the best formats around. At the end of this module you will have a PDP that is balanced between clinical and non-clinical skills, uses a balance of educational methods, is correctly prioritised and above all is achievable. We will show you how to measure your current skill levels and break your learning into realistic steps. We will consider how and why to keep a learning log and how and why to keep supporting evidence. We will give you all the templates on disk, so that your PDP may be kept up-to-date electronically, and as an added bonus you can use this as a jumping off point to go for qualifications in CPD with the Institute of Administrative Management (Registered Manager, Certificate in Professional Development and Diploma in Professional Development)

Leadership is a skill that can be learned and is a skill that is necessary not only for those already in positions of authority, but those aspiring to successful management in the practice and for those who wish to contribute more to their practice team. This course introduces the Leadership model developed by Proaction International of the UK. Practising leadership skills will enable you to:

Earn respect and loyalty to yourselves and to the practice.
Have employees who feel they are valued and appreciated.
Take the practice forward.

Motivating Others
Module length: Half day
Your employees are your most valuable assets. Ones that are not properly motivated will eventually leave, but having motivated staff will improve patient relations, improve productivity, reduce turnover rates and above all help to create a successful practice. This seminar works on the people elements of leadership, which are needed to influence and motivate others without thump or thunder! People are the difference between success and failure. The way people are led, motivated, trained, involved, empowered and rewarded makes that difference. Knowing how to motivate will give you more harmonious working relationships, lower staff turnover and a more successful practice.
