About the Session

Building a successful career requires more than acquiring a particular set of skills or achieving the right credentials: It requires keen self-knowledge, performance, character and commitment. During this session, you will learn from the real-life experiences of two accomplished healthcare executives who have achieved significant success in the first decades of their careers. You will discover four pillars of executive excellence—self-awareness, performance, character and commitment—and be challenged to develop a deep and authentic understanding of self. Faculty will identify and analyze key variables of performance such as work ethic, intelligence, self-discipline, tenacity and lifelong learning. They also will explore elements of servant leadership, establishing trust, followership, networking and powerful relationship building. Brimming with refreshing insights and wisdom, this session will provide emerging leaders and industry veterans alike with practical tools and resources to advance their professional performance and careers.
