Engaging others

Mobilize people by tapping into their individual potential.
Course description

The ability to engage people — to make them care deeply about their work, commit to your organization’s goals and work together to achieve them — is crucial to your success as a leader. But in highly complex workplaces, where you need to reach people across many layers, functions and cultures, mastering this skill is a challenge.

In this Physician Leadership Institute course, you will focus on the core skills and practical tools you need to nurture an engaged organizational culture.

Engaging others is 1 of 6 core courses ― essential training for physicians interested in or engaged in a leadership position.

  • assess yours and others’ engagement in the workplace;
  • harness the major principles behind coaching;
  • communicate with others effectively;
  • discuss strategies for motivating others and building trust; 
  • practice powerful listening approaches to discover common ground and mutual insight; and
  • provide constructive feedback.
