The Emotionally Resilient Leader: a practical approach to improving your personal effectiveness’

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

Theme This workshop will provide a range of strategies to enable medical leaders to increase their emotional resilience. Increased levels of resilience selfawareness will facilitate understanding of their impact on teams/others. Medical leaders ‘must be resilient and consistently demonstrate the energy, drive and motivation to lead and work with others… and to remain enthusiastic and optimistic in the face of setbacks’ (FMLM, 2015:4). In order to be an emotionally resilient, leaders require; self-awareness, selfmanagement, moral courage, integrity, clear purpose, confidence and adaptability because without these critical qualities/skills, effective positive relationships with others cannot be established. The workshop content will be underpinned by the Faculty of Medical Leadership & Management Standards [FMLM] for Medical Professionals (2015), the GMC/AMRC consultation on Developing a Framework for Generic Professional Capabilities (2015) as well as elements of Robertson & Cooper’s (2015) Resilience Model. Emotional intelligence (EI) is key to emotional resilience and the links between these two concepts will be examined. In addition practical strategies to gain increased self-awareness will be discussed in order to gain an understanding of how to ‘top up’ your personal resilience reservoir and what causes your ‘leaks’?
