Who will benefit from this learning?

In line with FIP Development goal 6 - Leadership Development;

Pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists working anywhere in the world and in all sectors of professional provision and specialist areas including academics, research, industry or clinical practice in hospital or community settings. 

Early career;- Leadership as a distributed concept; this programme prepares those with little or no line management responsibility for managing and leading others. The overall aim is to help you to engage and lead more effectively within teams and be seen as a leadership role model by colleagues, patients  and customers, both external and internal. 

Advanced & Specialist;- The Pharmacy Leadership Programme helps to develop those already in leadership positions to challenge what they already know and believe about their own leadership styles and leadership in general. This area of focus is designed to help such leaders determine what their department or organisation culture needs to be. Is leadership in your area of responsibility more about who you are, is it where you operate, is it about results, is it about how you lead or are all of these important? Where should the focus be? Supporting leaders to bring personal and organisational values to life;
