Technical Coaching for MSL Managers
September 28 - September 29
Technical Coaching for MSL Managers ™ (TCMSL) is an intensive 2-day open seminar designed to help managers of Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) to be better at coaching in a range of situations. There is a major focus on global standards for excellence for MSLs and their teams, and how to assess performance (including metrics).
Whether a direct superior or a mentor assigned to work with MSLs in other areas of the company, TCMSL helps MSL managers become clear in their own strengths and development needs to be more effective MSL coaches, counselors and mentors. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from advanced trainers and subject matter experts. The training will include interactive caselets profiling different MSL situations and needs, role plays, and other workshops which provide a perfect opportunity for hands-on learning.
TCMSL surveys, which managers complete prior to attendance, provide specific direction for each participant on which specific coaching skills related to technical aspects of MSL coaching. Their MSLs are also requested to complete competency self-assessments. Based upon the results of these two types of surveys, the MSL managers are able to finalize their own coaching and development plans for their MSLs as a team and individually. The assessments also identify situations where subordinates’ competencies or performances are not satisfactory, and these become the basis of extensive simulations. From managing and coaching the newest MSLs to the most experienced and problematic ones, TCMSL helps make every MSL manager a better coach and leader.
