The increasing demands on health center leadership in this time of historic change require leaders to be more resilient, innovative, and focused. Yet, the expectations of leaders remain the same – inspire and develop your staff, make decisions and produce results. The difference boils down to how a leader shows up as a human being while navigating times of change and uncertainty. In a word – it is presence. In this interactive workshop, participants will build skills that develop their own leadership presence and understand why it is a must-have for today’s health center leaders. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore their own communication patterns and will develop practical skills in listening and engagement that can create a more productive and nourishing work environment.
