C147 - The Doctor's Lounge…Helping Physicians in Mid-career Renew and Repurpose Their Work/Lives

Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Topic(s): Leadership, Leadership University, Academic
Director(s): Terrence Cascino MD, FAAN, Richard Leider
Description: This workshop is designed to help physicians at midlife answer the question "what's next?" Periodically, even the most successful individuals need to "push the pause button" and reflect on what they want to do in the next phase of their careers and lives. Every decade of the life cycle brings new challenges, pleasures, and possibilities. Longer life expectancy means that people in midlife could face another 50 years - literally half of life& - navigating a new work/life landscape without a guide or a map. Physicians often talk informally about these things in the "doctor's lounge," or after hours, but rarely have the time or the tools to follow up with exploration and action. Many of the traditional sources of support - at home, as well as among colleagues - are often compromised or even missing. Add to that, the rules for second half of life are unclear and the traditional paths have been all but obliterated. The old ways of charting a new phase of life simply don't work as well any longer. This workshop provides the seasoned guidance and map plus peer network to help physicians figure out what they want to happen in the next phase of their work/lives.
Completion Message: The program emphasizes the "growing" aspect of growing older and provides new ways in which we can grow whole rather than decline in the second half of our work/lives. The workshop helps answer questions like: What do I want in the next phase of my career and life? Who wants me? How can I repurpose my career while making ends meet? How can I create a renewal plan for wellbeing?
