OCMA hosts Leaders Toolkit: A two-day course for physicians seeking leadership roles in organized medicine


Leadership, except for the amazing few, is a learned art.

The Leader's Toolkit is a Socratic seminar (via a didactic "lecture") that covers the key elements of leadership in a very concise manner. While there will be some theory, we will highlight actionable behavior, tools, and concepts that you will (or should) use every day. This two-day course is available to CMA/OCMA members only.

What Will Be Covered:

  • Strategy: Knowing when to change, change management, strategic planning, strategic execution
  • Leading Your Team: Non-delegatable responsibilities of the leader, setting boundaries - management philosophy, making decisions
  • Building Your Team: Hiring (and firing)
  • Managing Your Time: Setting priorities, managing your time
  • Managing Your Meetings: Running a Meeting, parliamentary procedure
  • Managing Your Organization's Money: assessing your financials from the CEO's perspective and knowing the correct questions to ask
  • CMA/CMS Structure: Understanding and leveraging this critical relationship from a physician leader's perspective
  • Managing Your Message: Communicating by email, communicating one-to-one, having difficult conversations, negotiating, communications with your customer (aka marketing)

Meeting Dates & Times: 
Leader's Toolkit will begin promptly at 8:00 am on Saturday, March 22, 2013 and includes a mandatory dinner that evening. We will convene again at 8:00am on Sunday, March 23rd. We will conclude at 12 noon.

"My participation in the Leader's Toolkit seminar was useful in so many ways - some unexpected. I have been more effective at communicating within my family, at my workplace and among the leadership at my hospital. I recommend this course to all physicians who want to advocate for patients or for other doctors, who hold any leadership role in their practice, hospital, community or medical group, or who have any aspirations for such a role."
