Without the capacity to recognize how your unique frame of reference affects your work on a team, your reactions to others, and how you see a situation, it can be virtually impossible to be an effective team member or leader in academic medicine. Whether you’re an individual contributor or someone who leads a team, the ability to objectively evaluate your values, personality, needs, and hidden biases is integral to building stronger relationships and the confidence needed to achieve your personal and professional goals. But cultivating and applying this highly-important leadership skill is not always an easy task. During this new virtual workshop* focused on increasing self-awareness, you will discover strategies and tactics that will enable you to:

  • Adjust your working style to work more cohesively with others who approach tasks differently
  • Communicate with clarity and intention
  • Listen more effectively
  • Develop a growth mindset and more

Who Should Attend?

This unique virtual learning experience is ideal for all faculty and staff who are interested in harnessing the power of self-awareness to increase their individual and/or organizational performance.
