Event Description:

As healthcare professionals, we are perfectly poised to train the next generation of healthcare leaders and equip them with agency: the power and courage to transform in their local environments. There is an increasing recognition of the importance of leadership training for medical educators. An understanding of the human side of leading transformation within our complex health systems is crucial to building agency in trainees. The strategies of the Psychology of Framework will be reviewed during this session. Participants in this experiential collaborative workshop will leave the session with practical tools to purposefully build agency in their teams.

By the end of this session, the attendees will be able to:

•Articulate strategies to build agency outlined in the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Psychology of Change Framework.

•Reflect on their own agency within their organization.

•Develop a plan for how they will purposefully build agency within their local environment.
