Using Relational Awareness to Build Better Teams
Physician Leadership Practical Skills Series
Physicians do not work in isolation and because of their expertise are often viewed and held to account as the MRP — “Most Responsible Person” in the room. Perceived power differentials are real and often limit honest feedback leading to a false sense of security about the impact of words and actions. Medicine is an interdependent pursuit where team communication and relationships are key to successful outcomes and personal satisfaction.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Recognize factors that lead to misunderstanding
- Describe key factors necessary for high functioning teams
- List practical strategies for managing self and others in day-to-day practice
