Identifying Training and Development Needs

  • Annabel Broome
Part of the Essentials of Nursing Management book series (ENMS)


Knowing more about yourself, your range of skills, the way you prefer to function both interpersonally and in teams, is essential in managing change and getting the best from the people you manage. This chapter includes exercises designed to help you assess your own behavioural style, and to give you an opportunity to develop a wider range of style. They might best be done as part of training or during ‘time-out’ with your own team.
