Are You Managing a Crisis or Transforming a Culture?

Join us Friday, January 29, 2021 from 8–10 a.m. 

Just as sprinters and long distance runners train differently, managing crises and leading sustainable system transformation are not interchangeable skillsets. Although physicians are well trained to handle short duration, acute crises, they are less likely to be successful with the leadership transition to long term, chronic adaptation to persistent health system stressors. This interactive workshop helps participants identify the leadership attributes and skills of CMOs who are successful at adapting to chronic system challenges such as Covid-19 as it plays out over successive waves as an enduring, semi-permanent leadership challenge.
