Are your leadership skills up to CQC standards?

Published 14th August 2019 by admin.

Learn how to be a leader with dental business coach Andy McDougall from Spot On Business Planning

Leadership is now a key component for CQC inspections of dental practices. Is your dental team well supported? Do you and your management team work well with all members of staff? Do you and your managers show respect for staff at every level?

Dental business mentor, Andy McDougall from Spot On Business Planning has announced the dates and details of his next leadership course at the BDA headquarters in London.

The course will take place on Friday July 3, 2020 and, as there are limited numbers, dental business leaders are encouraged to book early. The course is suitable for dental practice managers, principal dentists and those in charge of the dental business.

Learning objectives

  1. Understand the different leadership styles and become aware of your own
  2. Have a thorough grounding in the principles of leadership
  3. Understand the difference between leadership and management
  4. Be aware of what followers expect from leaders
  5. Understand culture and how to unlock a high-performing team

The course provides 6 1/2 hours CPD and meets the educational criteria set by the GDC for verifiable CPD and is certified by the British Dental Association.

Feedback from recent attendees

“I enjoyed listening to a total expert share his knowledge in a very engaging way.”

“Practical tips to implement in practice immediately rather than just theory focused.”

“The lecture and the quality were really high standards.”

Andy McDougal said: “The success or failure of your leadership skills will become clearly visible in your results. The only way to achieve your strategic goals is to harness the whole team in pursuit of your vision. A culture that fails to galvanise the entire team
risks a radically negative impact on results.”
