S09A – Developing the Next Generation of Leaders: Lessons From the First 10 Years

Tuesday, March 24th

About the Session

Are leaders born, or are they made? The truth is, leaders are individuals who have intentionally developed their unique skills and talents and aligned them with specific goals for maximum success. During this seminar, learn from the real-life experiences of two accomplished healthcare executives who have achieved significant success in the first decade of their careers. Discover four pillars of executive excellence: self-awareness, performance, character and commitment. You will be challenged to develop a deep and authentic understanding of self, as genuine self-awareness is a catalyst for executive excellence and sustainable career growth. The presenters also will identify and analyze key variables of performance such as work ethic, intelligence, self-discipline, tenacity and lifelong learning. History can provide numerous examples of highly intelligent and capable leaders who have been derailed by lapses of integrity.

In addition, you will explore elements of servant leadership, establishing trust, followership, networking and powerful relationship building. Faculty also will discuss the ability to manage failure and rebound from mistakes—critical skills at every career stage. 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 career.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define four pillars of executive excellence: self-awareness, performance, character and commitment.
  • Acquire practical tips for professional networking, succeeding in job interviews, landing that first position and navigating a career path in healthcare management.
