Leadership webinar series

As a part of our Leadership initiative, we ran a series of free webinars for veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses to address the challenges of leading and working with colleagues and clients through the coronavirus pandemic.

RCVS Leadership logoThe hour-long sessions were a collaboration with the Tavistock Institute, a not-for-profit organisation that applies social science methodologies to contemporary issues and problems, and were led by experts in the field of organisational development and change. Each session provided members with an opportunity to think about the wide-ranging effects the pandemic has had on our lives and our workplaces. In particular, the sessions addressed themes such as the impact of being furloughed; returning to work and living one’s life in conditions of ongoing uncertainty; and working through change.

There are four webinars in the series tackling a specific theme each week, each of which builds upon the last. Listeners are provided with advice, guidance and coaching to enable them to grow their understanding and confidence so that they feel better placed to negotiate, lead, or support others, during these uncertain times.

The themes covered by the webinars are described below. Whilst valuable as standalone sessions, each webinar in the series is designed as a counterpart to the others so that members can achieve a deeper and richer appreciation and understanding of the issues.
