Two-part program:

  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Building social capital


Giving and receiving feedback – by Kathy Kennedy, DrPH

Can I give you a little feedback? For many people hearing, or even asking that question, prompts an adrenal response. How you prepare for and respond to that question can mean a world of difference whether it’s at your patient’s bedside or your family dinner table. Being able to give and receive feedback is an essential skill that every physician needs in order to build trusting relationships and improve the performance of their care team.

By the end of this workshop, the participant will be able to:

  1. Identify best practices in both giving and receiving feedback.
  2. Prepare for the feedback conversation so that the communication will be effective.
  3. Apply the feedback principles to give or get needed feedback.

Building social capital – by Aaron Templer

Building Social Capital examines our world as a place increasingly influenced by groups constructed socially. Especially given the exponential growth of such constructs in the digital space, groups convene and influence each other and others through social groups. The currency traded in these groups is social capital—a learnable leadership discipline that has come of age.
By the end of this workshop, the participant will be able to:

  1. Understand the nature of socially constructed groups.
  2. Learn what drives individuals within these groups to action.
    1. Autonomy (the ultimate leadership dichotomy)
    2. Strengths-based alignment (working to our strengths, not fixing our weaknesses)
    3. Inspiration and engagement (attachment to something larger than ourselves)
  3. Learn what social capital is within an organizational/workplace environment
  4. Learn what value social capital can bring to an organization
  5. Learn how to build social capital

    1. Structural ties
    2. Relational ties
    3. Cognitive ties
  6. Assimilate learning with examples of brands
