The programme equipped me with the skills to distinguish between a leader and a manager and I learned to identify the areas I needed to work on. The one-to-one coaching sessions were probably the most valuable hours I have spent since restarting my career. I developed a great rapport with my coach and I was able to be frank and honest about my own personal fears and insecurities. These sessions have formed a huge part of my personal growth over the last few months.
As a direct result of this course, I had the confidence to apply for a job I may not have considered before and am now in a leadership role that I love. It’s early days but I’m putting into practice the things I learned and achieving brilliant results so far. Through work and self-improvement, I feel like a different person from when I was just out of recovery. I feel empowered and on top of my game and so much of that’s attributable to the Patient Leadership Course. I’m forever glad I took the opportunity.
