Executive Presence and Presentation Skills for Healthcare Professionals
“Healthcare has become extraordinarily complex – the balance of quality against cost, and of technology against humanity, are placing ever-increasing demands on clinicians. These challenges require extraordinary leaders.” — Harvard Business Review1
2-Day Workshop for Healthcare Professionals
Executive Presence is today’s universally recognized membership card to the C-Suite.
This workshop combines Communication Skills Training with Executive Presence. It examines the leadership qualities essential for healthcare professionals who aspire to executive appointments – and those currently serving in senior roles, on the threshold of greater advancement.
WHAT MAKES A GREAT LEADER?
Leadership and Executive Presence Building blocks for Healthcare Professionals
This 2-Day Workshop advances leadership qualities through focused training:
- Create powerful First Impressions
- Interact with the full spectrum of people, across every organizational level
- Make compelling presentations
- Communicate consistently
- Showcase Charisma, the ability to emanate power while displaying warmth
- Convey empathy
- Network with ease, anywhere and with anyone
Far more than skills, ability and talent
Executive Presence combines leadership qualities, communication and engagement expertise in a powerful mix that leads to continuous upward mobility. It is more than looking and acting the part.
To achieve high-level executive positions, C-Suite status or join the elite ranks of Boards of Directors, and be successful in these roles, healthcare professionals require the same leadership skills as candidates from other sectors. This workshop offers a unique way for healthcare professionals to receive the training compulsory for executive appointments.
Healthcare professionals must be perceived as leaders, to be anointed as leaders. The same high standards of Executive Presence apply to financiers, engineers, lawyers, in reality, to every profession, including healthcare.
Why now — is this critical for healthcare professionals?
Across the broad spectrum of people making decisions about executive appointments, impressive credentials are often the overwhelming force behind a candidate’s selection. Appointees place extraordinary emphasis on “technical” credentials. Often, there’s little reason to look outside the technical references or healthcare credentials – until after the fact when there are disappointments.
Experts agree that for leaders to succeed, impressive technical skills and credentials are no match for a finely honed ability to relate to people. Overwhelmingly, a lack of people skills is the reason leaders fail.
Look and act like a Leader
This Master-Class provides condensed, comprehensive training to ensure that by developing leadership skills, healthcare professionals excel following executive and C-Level appointments.
Healthcare focuses on managing and nurturing multiple patient relationships and caring for individuals on a case-by-case basis. Leadership demands big-picture thinking and the skills to share the vision, to influence, to bring people onboard and to move things forward.
Leaders are made, not born
Unquestionably, high-performance is a given – along with experience, knowledge, talent and ambition. The much-needed additive to this mix is Executive Presence.
