This year’s conference will include a full-day session with presenter Allison Linney called “A Leader’s Guide to Resolving Conflict.” This session will focus on the skills needed to make conflict productive, make attendees aware of their own conflict styles, and allow them to practice conflict management and effective communication skills. In addition, a half-day session called “Putting High Reliability Organizing (HRO) to Work,” led by Craig Clapper, will focus on the physician leader’s role in shaping performance culture, discussing the principles of high reliability organizing, and demonstrating various skills physician leaders can use to shape culture. Continuing medical education credits are available again this year.

Both Linney and Clapper are nationally-recognized faculty from the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL), formerly the American College of Physician Executives, and both will discuss important and practical leadership skills that help physician leaders move beyond their clinical training and take a new approach to managerial decision making and problem solving.
