Leadership for Physician Executives
Sunday, April 2, 2017 – Friday, April 7, 2017
Doubletree Bedford Glen Hotel
The enduring principles about human behavior taught at Leadership for Physician Executives help physicians find solid, specific solutions to some of their most troubling work-related problems. In the seminar’s didactic lectures, small-group discussions, and consultation sessions, participants explore the psychological tasks of leadership and management. Together, these methodologies further participants’ knowledge and enhance their ability to apply that knowledge in clinical practice, thereby achieving the learning objectives and desired changes in competence and performance.In the seminar, participants learn to read people’s situations more accurately. They become skilled at harnessing the intrinsic motivation and enthusiasm of their teams. They learn how to capture the frenetic energy released during organizational change and convert it into efficiency, productivity, and new opportunities. Physicians also learn how to master the dual aspects of the leadership role—the personal and the accountable.Leadership for Physician Executives has been continuously improved and updated since its inception in 1984. However, the seminar—with its didactic lectures, small-group discussions, and one-on-one consultation sessions—has stood the test of time. Mealtimes (and even breaks) provide valuable learning opportunities.
