Clinician to Manager Module 1:
The Essential Leader

Have you just made the move into the management ranks? 

Would you like to understand what a high performing Unit Manager looks like?

Do you want to develop a way of thinking that will set you up to perform, cope and empower others?

Would you like to meet other people like you and talk about the issues that you have to deal with every day?

Would you like to develop your own plan to help you make this transition as smooth as possible?


THE ESSENTIAL LEADER introduces you to the keys to becoming a high performing Unit Manager. 

This day is highly interactive and brings together unit managers with experts in healthcare management

You will: 

  • Unpack the role and skills of the high performing unit manager
  • Design the leadership style you need for the greatest impact on you and your people
  • Develop an individualised Blue Print for transitioning from clinician to high impact manager
  • Pick up some tools to help you cope with the pressures of management

Moving from clinician to manager is a major transition in a nurse’s or midwife’s career.  It is often hard to leave the clinical ranks and become the stewards of the organisation.  But if you don’t make this transition effectively, it gets stressful for you and others.

Unit managers are the lynchpin in health, aged, and community care.  But to be the best you can be in this role, and make the difference you want to make, and not be totally overwhelmed and stressed out by it, you need to seriously invest in yourself.  This is where you need to accumulate your CPD points.  Becoming clear about what the job really entails and how to do it in a way that enables you and your team to thrive - that is the key to becoming a high impact manager.

Who is it for?

Nurses and midwives who are new or emerging managers of units or aged care facilities.
