Osteopathic Leadership Programme success
12 January 2016
All 20 of the participants in the first Osteopathic Leadership Programme – a partnership between the Osteopathic Development Group and the Open University to help osteopaths gain leadership skills and apply them for the benefit of the profession – have completed the programme successfully.
Consisting of an online Open University leadership course and a group activity, along with workshops in July and October, the 2015 programme was warmly praised by those who took part. All of them said the online course had been relevant to their professional work, with well over half describing it as very relevant, and all aspects of the final workshop were rated positively. A personal development plan review activity was considered particularly helpful.
Additionally, the participants have already been engaging in a variety of new or extended activities as a result of the programme. You can find details of the programme on the Institute of Osteopathy website at: http://bit.ly/odg-leadership
The 2016 programme is currently being planned, taking account of suggestions made by this year’s cohort. Osteopaths interested in taking part in this year’s programme should look out for more information in the next issue of the osteopath, out in February.
