Moving into a management role for a clinician can be an intimidating prospect. Working inside your specialty, even inside a multi-disciplinary team, does not prepare you for the interactions as a Clinical Director. Gearóid was recommended as a support for this transition. From our first conversation, he was engaging, thought provoking, and challenging. He brings his experiences from many years of training to illustrate methods to deal with different personalities and scenario’s. He helped me to understand why it is important to stand back – “leave the dance floor and observe from the balcony”.
