Self-awareness and effective leadership

To lead others, you must first know yourself.

Self-awareness is having a strong sense of self, and knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are. This core* course promotes greater self-awareness as you learn to examine your values and principles, thinking patterns, assumptions and emotional skills, as well as your strengths and limitations.

The course uses a variety of tools and techniques to help you develop the self-awareness you need to be an effective leader.

At the end of this PLI course, you will be able to:
  • Explore the complexity of roles, values, challenges and satisfactions of physician leadership
  • Interpret your emotional intelligence strengths and areas for development
  • Discuss the relevance of your personal effectiveness profile for your role as a leader
  • Develop communication strategies for adapting and connecting with others
  • Discuss techniques for self-management that enhance well-being
  • Create a professional development action plan for your leadership practice

Leadership assessment tools:

Because self-awareness is important to a leader, this course provides access to the online leadership assessment tool Insights® Discovery® Personal Profile, as well as the emotional intelligence assessment tool MHS Bar-On Workplace EQ-i™ Report, both of which participants will have completed before the workshop.
