Essential Leadership Skills for Pharmaceutical Physicians: Mentoring and Coaching

Friday 22 October 2021

Mentoring and coaching approaches are increasingly seen as effective tools for leaders to use with their teams. Pharmaceutical physicians as leaders can use coaching approaches with their teams. As they are also experts in their field, they may also be called upon to mentor people within the organisations as experienced advisors. This workshop will introduce you to the concept of coaching and mentoring and will give you a few basic tools to use back in your own organisations.

What to expect

The workshop will be very practical, with a number of personal and interactive exercises including mini practice mentoring/coaching sessions.

It will help you to:

  • better understand coaching and mentoring and the skillsets and experience required;
  • work through three techniques that are used in coaching and mentoring; and
  • utilise tactics to build and manage the relationship with the coach or mentee.

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

  • understand what coaching and mentoring involves;
  • establish and maintain an effective coaching / mentoring relationship;
  • use three techniques for coaching and mentoring.

Who should attend?

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