Ithaka Leadership Development Ltd



Do any of these scenarios sound familiar:
  • Changes in the Nhs. New opportunities for innovative providers. How can I maximise these opportunities?
  • Everything comes back to me! I want my team to take more responsibility
  • I'm in the detail most days, I want to work on the business not just in the business

  • Do I spend enough time motivating my high achievers?
  • Am I an effective leader, how do I manage what I don't do so well?
  • Problem people, what can i do to solve?
  • Not enough time for myself, I want to improve my work - life balance
  • It's difficult sharing problems, do others experience the same thing?

Pharmacist Programme

Designed at the request of a group of pharmacists, this is a practical leadership and management diploma to help deal with the challenging demands placed on a modern day Pharmacist. From the challenges of leading a team to exploiting new commercial opportunities, this interactive programme will push and challenge you at every level.

Pharmacists will receive a Diploma in Continuing Professional Development from Coventry University (80 Cat points). Although they will receive an academic qualification, this is not an academic programme…it is designed and delivered by Ithaka Leadership who strongly believe in development that benefits the individual as well as the business.

This programme has 4 projects to be submitted to the University. These work based projects require the implementation of real change into your job role. This form of delivery reinforces learning and avoids "tick box" training.

I have seen a massive improvement in staff morale due to relationships based on trust…in turn this has had a positive effect on the business turnover

It has changed the way I perceive things, but also the way other managers and staff in the business see things.
