What is Leadership? Leadership is the ability to significantly and consistently influence the thoughts, feelings, emotions and actions of another person. In our current healthcare environment where change is imminent, we need to move beyond trying to manage the chaos to survive. How can we inspire our team so we are able to thrive? During this session participants will identify not only their own leadership style, but also how to influence others to in a way that brings out their natural strengths and talents. Participants will be able to create a plan to create trust and respect as a leader, propose a plan to inspire others, and recognize tools that can be used to navigate communication breakdowns.
