On this episode

In this episode, Rachel is joined by Dr Jamie Wyllie co-author and presenter of the Red Whale Lead. Manage. Thrive! Course.

This is an ‘Ask the Frog’ episode where we chat about a question that we are often asked by GPs – how do I influence someone who is set in their ways, resistant to change and autocratic? We discuss the need to get on the same branch as them, to recognise what their thoughts and feelings are and ultimately, understand what their needs are. 

We discuss what it is to be a partner (not just in the legal sense of the word) which includes creating a shared purpose, the right to say no, joint accountability and absolute honesty – something that, if we are honest, very few of us really achieve. We talk about ways to improve relationships in the team and the fact that only thing we have full control of is ourselves.
