Encourage Physician Leaders to Attend WHA Physician Leadership Conference

November 17, 2017

Physicians new to leadership roles within your hospital or health system often need an opportunity to learn important and practical leadership skills that will help them move beyond their clinical training and take a new approach to managerial decision making and problem solving, allowing them to be most effective in their new roles. WHA’s annual Physician Leadership Development Conference can be just that needed opportunity.

Registration is now open for WHA’s 13th annual Physician Leadership Development Conference, scheduled for March 9-10, 2018 at The American Club in Kohler. Full information and online registration are available at www.wha.org or directly at www.cvent.com/d/ktql9j. Discounted registration is available to those registering by January 15. 2018.

This year’s conference will include a full-day session with presenter Allison Linney called “A Leader’s Guide to Resolving Conflict,” in which attendees will focus on the skills needed to make conflict productive and 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.
