Accepting the call to leadership in healthcare involves far more than an extension of responsibilities and the scope of one’s organizational influence. Accepting that call is a conscious decision to lead by example, to be a marauder for improvement in performance outcomes, and to serve as a lynchpin in the evolution of organizational culture. Strength-based leadership, the focus of this course, provides physician leaders with a powerful, adaptable framework to assess, navigate, and strategize the scenarios a leader may encounter professionally. During the course, learners will complete the VIA Character Strengths Assessment, and utilize their results to develop personalized leadership strategies based on their strengths. Learners will also train their interpersonal skills by learning to identify and bring out the strengths of colleagues and staff in order to garner better performance outcomes.
