Coaching and mentoring are both collaborative processes that assist individuals in reaching their full potential. Coaching is generally a shorter term relationship focused on an individual achieving performance driven goals. Mentoring is often an ongoing relationship where a more experienced individual works with someone less experienced on personal and professional growth. Coaching and mentoring both play an important role in personal and professional development in healthcare. This course will equip you with insights and practical skills to develop your effectiveness as both a coach and mentor as part of your portfolio of leadership skills.
Working in a team is not always easy. Team members invariably have different values and beliefs, all of which can lead to conflict. Why then do some teams consistently exceed expectations while others never seem to reach their goals? This course explores the features and characteristics of high performance teams and their leaders.
Communication is an essential skill. This is especially true in a healthcare setting where patient-centred communication is vital in comprehensive patient care. Not all healthcare practitioners are skilled communicators and this can lead to patient mistrust, incorrect diagnosis and inadequate treatment. This course defines the key elements of communication and explores the qualities of effective communication and explains some common obstacles to communication. Finally communication models such as the awareness wheel and ladder of inference are introduced as tools to improve communication.
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognise, understand and manage the emotions of oneself and of others. It is developed throughout life and can be learnt and improved on. Emotional intelligence has been shown to positively influence work performance, leadership, relationships, patient satisfaction and psychological health. A person’s EI can be assessed and areas of strength and weakness can be identified and worked on.
Change and transitions are a fact of life. They occur all the time and can evoke a range of emotions, from optimism and excitement to fear and anxiety. Change is an event whereas transition is the psychological process that occurs during a change. Healthcare is constantly facing change from the impact of technological advances such as electronic record-keeping, updated treatment protocols and updates to evidence-based practice. Whether you are in a small private practice or working for a large hospital organisation, managing and leading change, and more importantly the transitions involved in the change, is a vital skill. Various models have been created to help better manage and lead change and transition processes. This course will describe and define change and transition as well as differentiate between them. It will explore a variety of models of change and transition as well as a method for assessing change readiness. It will finally guide you through practical applications of the models focused around rehabilitation.
When people come together there will often be conflict. In healthcare, conflict can occur between healthcare professionals and auxiliary staff during the healthcare delivery process and result in serious problems with significant consequences. A good leader can recognise the causes of conflict and is able to facilitate a conflict management process where all parties feel they have been heard and their needs met. This course will show you various conflict management styles and behaviours as well as lead you through a step by step conflict management process.
Personal values are broad goals that represent what is important to someone. Beliefs are thought constructs that people apply to themselves, others, the world or the future. Personal values and beliefs help to guide our behaviours and decisions we make. A person's beliefs can be positive or negative and true or untrue. When analysing beliefs by their polarity and accuracy one can see where improvements can be made in their lives. This can be done by reframing untrue beliefs and recognising negative, true beliefs as an opportunity to change.
A therapeutic alliance is the sense of collaboration, warmth, and support between the client and therapist.

This course will enable you to understand what a therapeutic alliance is, and show you what you can do to help improve your therapeutic alliance with patients.
