Conflict Resolution and Principles of High Reliability Focus of 2018 Physician Leader Conference

February 09, 2018

On March 9-10, WHA will host its annual Physician Leadership Development Conference at The American Club in Kohler. This year’s Friday agenda will focus on strategies for physician leaders to resolve conflict utilizing effective feedback and the skills needed to make conflict productive. In addition, the Saturday morning session will focus on the physician leader’s role in shaping performance culture, discussing the principles of high reliability, and demonstrating various skills physician leaders can use to shape culture.

Sessions will be presented by Allison Linney and Craig Clapper, both nationally-recognized faculty from the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL), and both will discuss important and practical leadership skills that help physician leaders to move beyond their clinical training and take a new approach to managerial decision-making and problem solving.

Over the past 12 years, WHA has hosted nearly 1,800 physician leaders at the annual WHA Physician Leadership Development Conference, in an effort to assist members in providing the necessary education to new physician leaders and those identified as having leadership potential.
