AAHPM Leadership Forum: Ascend
2018 Ascend: Leading and Managing Through Change
October 7-9, 2018
The Hyatt Lodge at McDonalds Campus, Oak Brook, IL
The 2018 Ascend program helps hospice and palliative care professionals develop the capabilities required to lead their organization in implementing new directions.
The first evening focuses on key lessons in leadership. This year’s presenter is HPM visionary Martha Twaddle, MD. Martha will share insights from her leadership journey including how to anticipate, recognize, and adapt to changes at various career stages and situations.
The following day, Kathleen Neuendorf, MD will lead participants through a highly interactive session on effectively engaging teams by creating an environment of safety, value, and communication. Attendees will also take part in networking opportunities with HPM colleagues and leaders. The small groups will use case-based learning techniques to navigate difficult situations and resolve challenges in a variety of hospice and palliative care settings.
On the final, Darryl Harris, an internationally renowned speaker, trainer, facilitator, and coach will help participants uncover creative ways to empower and energize teams, team leaders, managers, and staff. Ascend attendees will discover why transitions are often challenging and how leaders can successfully overcome passive and active resistance to new initiatives.
