Personal Leadership Excellence

Provider CPD Points Duration
Academyst from eMedicus Ltd.61 Day

The challenges we face, coupled to the complexity of the environment in which we operate, creates some of the most difficult leadership conditions any leader could possibly imagine. Moreover, the cost of leadership failure is catastrophic in human terms. We need leaders who have the personal strength and impact to achieve great things, motivate and inspire people and lead transformation. This programme is focused firmly on you - the leader. It takes a systematic and comprehensive approach to building your understanding of personal leadership effectiveness, along with providing very practical guidance.

Some of that impact doesn't come just from knowing. We'll also develop and set you on a path for lasting improvements, allowing you to hone and develop your leadership impact to the highest possible levels.



Understanding People digital learning programme, providing 3 CPD points and a great deal of enhanced learning depth in a crucial set of topics that will be used on the programme.


Exceptional Personal Leadership digital learning programme - more than 12 hours of in-depth learning, going into each section covered on the course in greater depth, allowing you to both review the learning AND augment it with extra tools, techniques and insight.

Influencing Upwards & Outwards digital learning programme - another 6+ hour programme designed to give you much greater depth in this most important aspect of impact, allowing you to take the most practical aspect of impact effectiveness to a whole new level.


Going forward, we have made the decision to concentrate on our ever growing In House/Bespoke course delivery, rather than open courses. With ever greater financial pressures on Trusts, this allows us to deliver a lower per person cost, with no travel for delegates as an added bonus.

We are able to come into your trust and deliver highly cost-effective, first class training service to groups of typically between 8 – 20 delegates (larger numbers can be accommodated on request).  For 8 or more delegates, the in-house rate saves both Trust and individuals money, not to mention the time-saving from not having to travel. 

Most of our courses can be tailored to suit specific groups e.g. consultants, SAS doctors, allied healthcare professionals etc, or structured for mixed groups. We are also finding that 2 or 3 local trusts may join forces to put on a training course, allowing more attendees and thus lowering the cost per person still further.
