Great leaders are not born, but made through deliberate practice of the craft. The “Art and Science of Leadership” course is designed for all neurosurgeons, academic to private practice, providing a continuum of practical leadership skills that can be instantly applied to any practice. Based on educational theory and validated measures, this course provides tangible, take home lessons giving the attendees not only insight into their current skill set, but a pathway on how to maximize their potential. With a faculty of well-known neurosurgical leaders, participants are encouraged to bring their toughest leadership or education challenges to discuss. There will be a pre-course on-line survey that will be used to construct private, individualized behavioral reports for each person.

Learning Objectives: After completing this educational activity, participants should be able to:
  • Interpret an individualized behavioral report (Predictive Index) that provides insight into leadership and management styles.
  • Summarize a personal Emotional Intelligence report that will help the attendees see where they are currently at and areas for personal growth.
  • Recognize their Conflict Management style and how to use it for individual and team success.
  • Discuss leadership and educational challenges.
  • Recognize how personal well being is critical to success as a leader
