The following article refers to the Leadership Multi Source Feedback (Leadership MSF) for ST3 GP trainees. For more information about the Leadership Workplace Based Assessment (WPBA), please visit the RCGP website.
Guidance for the use of the MSF
Once you have completed the leadership activity, the Leadership focused MSF then gives the opportunity for you to receive some feedback from colleagues on your leadership skills. The exercise has been designed to evaluate your strengths in leadership and to reflect on where you need to concentrate your efforts before becoming an independent practitioner.
Your leadership activity needs to have been completed before you start the MSF.
Prior to requesting your colleagues to complete this form you need to complete a self-assessment. This will enable a comparison to be made between the two sets of results.
The more respondents who complete the MSF the more useful the results. It is therefore suggested that you consider a wide range of colleagues, both within the organisation in which you work day to day and also colleagues with whom you have contact outside the organisation. The respondents should include people who were involved in your leadership activity but is not confined to just this group as the questions also ask about your leadership capabilities which may not have been included in this activity.
Your respondents are asked to answer 5 questions, each with a rating scale, and to comment on any highlights of your leadership, and suggest areas for improvement.
As with all MSFs, the results will be made available to your Educational Supervisor to access first and then released to you. You should arrange to meet with your Educational Supervisor to allow discussion and feedback with the creation of a personal development plan if required.
