Lifeskills: Leading and Developing Successful Teams

University of Reading

Our Lifeskills events are 3-hour workshops which are designed to provide a brief introduction to key topics relevant to working life. Managing a team of people can be a difficult task. You may have many different personalities who place different constraints on your time and sometimes this may cause conflict. Getting your team to work together to perform, requires a manager who is adaptable in their approach and indeed in how they motivate their staff. This interactive workshop aims to provide basic hints and tips to address some of these key issues using Bruce Tuckman’s Forming, Storming Norming, Performing model.

The Great Debate 2019 - Can new technology transform healthcare?

The increasing adoption of digital technology has resulted in fundamental changes in many industries. Yet healthcare, which represents about 10% of global GDP, has lagged other sectors. This is about to change as big data and artificial intelligence will deliver improvements in diagnosis and treatment that will increase health care's reach, efficiency, accuracy and reduce waiting time for patients. Technological advances offer significant opportunities to improve healthcare and have the potential to deliver significant value for the NHS. This year's Great Debate will provide an update on the latest technology advances to deliver these benefits.
