C189 - Team Building in Medicine: How to Incorporate Strengths Training into Medical Teams

Event Time: Wednesday May 8, 2019 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Topic(s): Leadership, Leadership University, Academic
Director(s): Keri Bischoff , Julie Anderson
Description: Patient-centered care has one ultimate goal: healing the patient. In today's medicine the patient experience is a top priority for good reason: it makes a measurable difference. Research shows that engaged medical teams are better able to establish an emotional connection with patients and their families thereby improving the patient experience. During this workshop we will learn a step-by-step approach to building a strengths-based team by understanding, appreciating, and investing in the unique talents of everyone involved. Neurologists who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged in their jobs, and this engagement level impacts how they care for their patients. As leaders in neurology you will have a better understanding of one another, be more collaborative and intentionally structure tasks and responsibilities to maximize the teams' talents. Top neurologists from leading institutions will share how they have implemented a strengths-based approach to build cohesive, efficient, productive, and happier teams.
Completion Message: Upon completion, participants will be able to identify their leadership strengths and apply the language of StrengthsFinder to implement a strengths-based approach to build engaged, collaborative medical teams for improved patient care.
