Merton C. Flom Leadership Insight© Program

The Merton C. Flom Leadership InSight© Program is designed to help build leadership skills and realize your full potential.

This hybrid course combines online pre-meeting modules, videos, and interaction with mentors who are Leadership Insight Program alumni. The on-site course at the annual meeting will include activities that are both interactive and personalized. The goal is for the participant to walk away from the courses with concrete leadership strategies to implement immediately following the meeting.

To maximize the benefit of these courses, it is highly recommended that you enroll in the entire program. Both courses can be completed in a single meeting or can be taken sequentially over several annual meetings; the sequence should be completed within 3 years.

Add these courses to your meeting registration! The last day to register for the leadership program is September 24, 2020!

Intermediate Leadership Course: How to Bolster Your Emotional Intelligence for More Effective Leadership


How to Bolster Your Emotional Intelligence for More Effective Leadership

Thursday, October 8, 2020, 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM
Presented by Laurie K. Baedke

Technical competence alone is insufficient to achieve the highest levels of success. Emotional intelligence (otherwise known as emotional quotient or EQ) is essential for clinicians and leaders attempting to cope with an increasingly complex and fast-paced world. What is emotional intelligence? How does it apply to healthcare? How do we use it to improve performance?

This workshop focuses on scientific work that has been done on emotional intelligence. EQ involves specific skills that can be developed over time. Moreover, having a high EQ has been correlated with measurable results on the job.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

-Identify the four components of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management

-Recognize competencies within the emotional intelligence model, and describe their impact on performance and influence in the workplace

-Develop strategies to increase emotional intelligence personally and in those they lead

Additional fee: $75 ($20 for students)
