Managing Polarities And Making Sense Within Complexity and Chaos: Leading Health System Renewal Within Uncertainty
Faculty: Phil Cady, PhD; Johny Van Aerde, MD, PhD
Date/time: May 24-25, 2023
Price: $1,900 for CMA/CSPL members and $2,000 for non-members.
The recent collapse of the health(care) system amplified the need of physician engagement and leadership for the health system’s renewal. During the COVID19 crisis, the focus of leaders had to be mainly on immediate action and solutions, and on the well-being of self and teams (LEADS domains of Lead Self and Engage Others). As many deficiencies in our health system led to a syndemic of problems, long term and foundational systemic changes need to be made for which different and new leadership skills are and will be required (LEADS domain of Systems Transformation). Both strategic AND tactical leadership are necessary.
In this very interactive and dynamic workshop, participants will learn, reflect on, develop and practise leadership tools and skills, and apply them to their own issues: metaphoric reasoning to see what else is possible and create a new reality; sense-making for decisions to be made in chaotic and complex environments; applying leadership agility to lead as an independent expert AND as an interdependent leader; managing polarities like continuity AND transformation, recognizing patterns and structures that create rigidity and status quo in the system; creating powerful questions to solve complex and facilitate dialogue for polarities.
Volatile – metaphoric reasoning – Vision and new reality
Unpredictable – zooming & sense-making – Understanding and deciding
Polar – polarity management for integration – Possibilities
Entangled – recognizing archetypes – Engage for structure change
Critical Success Factors For Effective Physician Leadership: An Evidence-Based Approach
Faculty: Anurag Saxena, MD; Graham Dickson, PhD
Date/time: May 25, 2023
Price: $995 for CMA/CSPL members and $1,150 for non-members.
Effective leadership is a critical element to engage the constituents and achieve organizational outcomes. Critical success factors (CSFs) refer to those requirements that must be continually met for the success of an enterprise. The authors conducted a study of physician leaders in Canada (through CSPL) to identify CSFs for effective physician leadership and found six CSFs, two each at the industry level, organization level and individual level.
This course will explore two organization-level CSFs (balancing autonomy with accountability of the workforce and accruing and maximizing impact of resources) and one self-level CSF (adaptive reflection) as well as how to develop and enhance individual abilities to bring these CSFs to life in their leadership role.
