Leadership Development in PCP Chapters
PCP believes that developing the leadership abilities of both current and future primary care professionals is integral to the future of primary care. Our leadership development programs offer members and others training and coaching in a variety of unique Relational Leadership practices necessary to build teams, communicate with different stakeholders and advocate for change. These skills are then applied to local projects that range from interprofessional student hotspotting efforts to campaigns that promote primary care at academic institutions, to clinical innovations.
What is Relational Leadership?
Relational Leadership is an approach to accelerating change that focuses on the "who" just as much as the "what" and the "how." This involves understanding and addressing the interests, motivations and needs of the people involved in the change. By adding this relational strategy to our technical plans for transforming systems, policies and behaviors we significantly raise our chances of success. Learn more.
Why is it important to the primary care movement?
The primary care community currently faces a lot of challenges - and they all involve people. Our professional community is experiencing alarming rates of burnout, care teams face innumerable barriers to transformation and decision-makers continue to create policies that frustrate and impede those on the frontlines. Fixing these challenges therefore requires we take a more sophisticated approach to people - to persuade, motivate, enable and empower the necessary changes we need.
