Thinking Like a Leader: Creating Habits of Mind and Heart

Led by:

  • Sandrijn van Schaik, MD, PhD
  • Josette Rivera, MD
  • Bruce Blumberg, MD

There are many different models for leadership and extensive literature on leadership styles. While there is no single “best” model, understanding these models and getting some insight on your own style is essential for the development of effective leadership skills. Similarly, there is no single, comprehensive, and generally agreed-upon list of leadership skills, yet published frameworks have much overlap. We will build on the LEAD certificate program from the AAMC/GEA in our discussion of leadership skills and utilize previously described models for developing a vision, mission, and individual development plan.

At the end of the session, learners will be able to:

Define leadership

  • Identify key leadership knowledge, skills, and habits
  • Reflect upon one’s own leadership styles and strengths
  • Create a personal mentoring and career development plan
