Essential Leadership Skills for Pharmaceutical Physicians: Effective influencing

Monday 26 October 2020

Pharmaceutical physicians work within companies where their team provides a service as part of a larger organisational goal with associated timelines. They often have to align their own team’s goals with this larger goal such as the successful launch of a drug. This workshop will help leaders with the process of identifying, setting and delivering on their own team’s goals.


The workshop will help you to:

  • Develop influencing skills for leading projects and teams internally; and

  • work more effectively with key external stakeholders; and

  • target key influencers to help you get the resources and support you need.

By the end of the workshop you’ll be better able to:

  • prepare for influence;

  • build commitment with those you work with to make your projects run more smoothly; and

  • choose the right approach when dealing with your team and other key stakeholders.

Who should attend?

This training is designed to be useful to all pharmaceutical physicians who are aspiring or established leaders.
