Doing my ILM Leadership and Management Diploma with Talk Training has enabled me to adapt my management style to better understand the needs of the Health Board as well as the needs of my colleagues. The reflective practice as given me clearer insight into the strategic aims of the organisation and how we can work together to deliver them.  My assessor has helped and coached me through some very challenging times allowing me to make difficult decisions with confidence during the Pandemic.  I have been empowered through the training to be a leader when called upon. Having completed Level 4 and Level 5, I would highly recommend ILM training to all aspiring managers and leaders in the NHS as well as to existing managers.
