This discussion-based, facilitated online course focuses on developing personal leadership skills. Derived from the CMA’s PMI leadership development program, the course is designed to help participants gain valuable insights into the personal attributes essential for effective leadership.

The course promotes greater self-awareness by teaching the skills associated with examining your own values and principles, thinking patterns, assumptions and emotional skills, and addressing strengths and limitations.

Learning objectives

By course end, the learner will be able to:

  • recognize the critical importance of personal mastery as a foundation for effective physician leadership
  • achieve a more complete view of self as a leader with respect to personal values and principles, personality style, emotional intelligence and strengths
  • develop strategies to leverage strengths and manage your limitations
  • establish a professional development action plan that includes setting personal leadership goals

Participants will move as a cohort through the course, completing one module per week, but can choose when to be online according to their personal schedules.
