Rising from Chaos: Harnessing Turbulence to Gain Positive Momentum

Lead: To cause (drive, influence) others to go with one while moving forward. To guide and show the way.

As leaders, we are tasked with inspiring our teams as we steer our ship forward. At times, the seemingly chaotic changes we face in health care today can make it a challenge to navigate through the environment and harness that energy to propel us toward a desired future state. Tremendous opportunity, however, hides within such turbulence, and the acquisition of innumerable skills can empower leaders to successfully harness the chaos to gain positive momentum. This year’s institute will include important related topics:

  • Managing dysfunctional units using diverse approaches to problem solving
  • Understanding finances for operations and new programs and reconciling the tension between pursuing an academic mission with revenue generation
  • Cascading a message to your team when you don’t agree with the decision
  • Elevating the story of GIM – the value of population health, primary care and hospital medicine
  • Overcoming implicit bias and leveraging diversity

Join us at the 2019 Leon Hess Management Training and Leadership Institute to share your experience, enrich your developmental network and learn new skills that will help you to channel chaos into momentum towards a shared mission.
The Institute is designed as a resource for anyone in or pursuing a leadership role, including Division Chiefs, Hospital Medicine Directors, Associate Chiefs, Section Heads, Administrators, and other leaders in divisions of GIM and Hospital Medicine. Please consider sponsoring a colleague/s to join you.
