You! - How to make the best of your personality when interacting with others

12th October 2020

As a healthcare worker you may have experienced certain challenges in navigating your work environment prior to the current pandemic. COVID19 has caused huge shifts in life, life-style, work, and society in general causing deepening of such challenges. Seismic shifts in the past such these have seen irreversible change.

Where do you find yourself in this volatile, complex, uncertain and ambiguous environment?

The ABC of coping is generally held to be keeping active, taking breaks, and staying connected. Beyond just coping, resilience is about surviving by navigating the challenges and creating new opportunity to survive, thrive and lead yourself, others, and organisations successfully.

This webinar, the first in a series of four, will explore the leader in you. It will discuss self-awareness – conscious knowledge of one’s character, through their personality. Frameworks discussing different personality types will be presented with a view to you developing an understanding of your personality and that of people you work with. Strategies to communicate, influence and lead different types of people will be covered. Different scenarios of common day to day issues faced at work, will be played out for the participants. Join this webinar to discuss non-technical aspects of life as a surgical clinician to be successful during and beyond the pandemic.
