Relational Awareness – The New Essential Skill
Physician Leadership Practical Skills Series
Postgraduate training often does not or cannot prepare physicians for the multitude of relationships and situations they will inevitably experience in practice. The Relationship Intelligence Framework provides an evidence-based, non-judgmental method to help physicians develop the self-awareness and skills for managing themselves and relationships in the workplace. Relational Awareness begins with self-awareness; understanding who we are is essential to better managing the impact we may have on others. Relational Awareness involves having the skills to manage diverse situations and personalities.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Recognize how your story may impact others
- Describe evidence-based components that contribute to your sense of self (e.g. physician personality trait profile)
- List practical strategies for developing and managing diverse relationships
