Leadership coaching


AMA Victoria’s leadership coaching service provides confidential, goal-directed, and supportive conversations with an expert leadership coach. The purpose is to design individually tailored goals and action plans to support each person’s leadership development in their current role and context and support them to reach their goals.   

Effective outcomes would include:

Leadership development is an important part of ongoing professional development. As people become expert and experienced in their area of technical expertise, and move into more senior roles – where they have increasing influence over others and the work, and are looked to for leadership and advice – they need to increasingly draw on leadership knowledge and skills. Often, this area of work is not a focus of their initial area of study and training, and that is where in-role leadership development can help. 

Coaching is an effective method in supporting leadership development and can be highly beneficial for individuals and the organisations they are part of. 

We have five leadership coaching offerings developed specifically to support our members to develop their leadership capability.  The solutions have been designed to support doctors at different stages of their career, whether they are:  An aspiring leader, a current manager who wants to lead better or an experienced leader who wants to refine and develop their leadership style and approach.
