A one-day workshop is being held by the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS) to help first-time managers excel in their new roles. Topics under the spotlight at the event, which takes place on October 7, will include how to manage projects and priorities, correcting problem behaviour and poor performance, self-management skills that win respect and practical ways to overcome supervisor-employee communication barriers. Course organiser and SPVS President Elect Jacqui Molyneux, explained: “The workshop is aimed at any new manager within a practice and will provide an excellent grounding in some of the common issues faced when taking on managerial responsibilities. “Even if your new practice manager or head nurse seems to be a natural in their new role, they will inevitably confront issues and problems that they haven’t faced before. This workshop will seek to equip them with the skills to be deal more effectively with these new challenges and excel in their new roles.” The one-day course will take place on October 7 in Sheffield (venue tbc). The cost is £199 plus vat for the first delegate and £179 plus VAT for a second delegate. For more information, and to book your place, please contact the SPVS office on 01926 410 454 or email .
