I Was Never Taught These Things: Perspectives from Leaders on Program Development
This webinar kicks off CAPC’s 2021 Leadership Series, designed to help palliative care leaders, at all stages, develop their personal ‘toolkits’ to navigate leadership challenges. The uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic demands that program leaders have reliable tools to effectively influence their program’s success. And yet many leaders find themselves in new or expanding leadership roles without training in core leadership competencies.
In this panel discussion, CAPC brings together the voices of new and seasoned leaders, from a variety of disciplines, to explore essential elements of program leadership. They will share hard-knock lessons from their leadership journeys and provide insights that help others feel increasingly equipped to successfully develop their palliative care programs. The panel will also discuss how to translate core strengths into leadership competencies, and provide tips that fill in the, “I was never taught these things” knowledge gap.
Who should attend: Webinar content will be relevant to any palliative care professionals taking an expanded leadership role, or interested in strengthening their leadership skills. Program managers will benefit from this panel, as will listeners who are leaders in other capacities.
