Leading during uncertainty

Management in Medicine

Saturday 6 November 2021   10:00 to 13:00


Mary Fenwick
Dr Oscar Lyons

Leadership often requires us to respond to uncertainty in ways that help our teams to work effectively and to achieve our goals for our patients. In this interactive session we will introduce some tools to help you consciously choose how to lead and support your teams during uncertainty. We will explore:

  • Dysfunctional momentum
  • Communication recalibration
  • Team resilience and shared adversity
  • Value-based decision-making
  • Prioritisation.
