The Shapes Toolkit programme gives doctors and their teams a complete toolkit to help you be more productive, take control of your work and beat stress and thrive.

If you feel on the edge of burnout, or simply want to stay resilient, become more productive and regain control over your working life, this course is for you.
We can now offer the Shapes Toolkit Course online, either through the Beat Stress and Thrive Course for individuals, or run as a virtual Shapes Mastermind Group Programme. Find out more by following the links or get in touch

 This course is essential to surviving life as a GP.

The Shapes Toolkit covers issues that you face in your daily work as a doctor such as:

  • Trying to do more and more with diminishing resources
  • Being overloaded with work, not having time to have one-to-ones with the team – finding that the important stuff is crowded out by the ‘urgent’
  • Managing difficult relationships between team members and between partners
  • Ineffective decision making within the partnership
  • Meetings that are inefficient, infrequent and always out of time
  • Staff being reluctant to change the way in which they work

The Shapes Toolkit will help you to:

  • Prioritise your time and workload
  • Recognise when you are heading towards burnout
  • Increase your own wellbeing
  • Identify and change the things that cause you stress at work
  • Change your reaction to stressful events
  • Have better conversations with your team
  • Take control of things that you can control
  • Identify when you are stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour, taking the ‘victim’ mentality
  • Take control of your own career development

The Shapes Toolkit.

We use seven shapes to anchor key skills and provide a shared language for breaking through difficult situations with ease.
