AAHPM Leadership Forum: Ignite
October 12, 2021 | 9am-3:30pm CT
AAHPM Ignite is live programming typically offered at the Annual Assembly, but will take place virtually in 2021. Enjoy an engaging day with your peers and a stellar faculty to help up your leadership game.
These sessions will equip hospice and palliative care team leaders with an understanding and recognition of one's strengths and limitations as a leader and how to say "yes" in leadership conversations.
9am - 12pm CT: Using StrengthsFinder Leadership Strategies to Increase the Performance of You and Your Team in Palliative Care and Hospice Settings
Christina Rowe, MSOL - The Collaborative LLC
Discover what makes you stand out using a strengths-based approach to create consistent and positive outcomes in everyday challenges. Strengths are the unique combination of talents, knowledge, and skills that every person possesses. You will complete a StrengthsFinder assessment which will help to identify personal strengths to focus on becoming a more effective leader. In this engaging 3-hour session, you will learn how to develop and leverage your strengths during common friction points as well as times of abnormally high stress like the past year. You will engage in large and small group discussions, self-reflection, and scenario-based activities to learn strategies and tactics for applying a strengths-based approach to individual and team challenges.
- Distinguish between the 34 Talent Areas of Strengths for self and other team members.
- Evaluate opportunities for applying individual strengths and devise plans to encourage growth and improve abilities to apply talents to those on your team.
- Create actional solutions to career and team challenges with a strengths-based approach to create consistent positive outcomes.
- Learn how strengths can be applied to build resilience for you and your team.

AAHPM's Leadership and Career Development Committee and Leadership Forum is excited to bring an Ignite session to a virtual platform. There are many nuanced skills in leadership. One of those skills is conversations to advocate for the needs of your program, your team or yourself. While we in hospice and palliative care (HPC) pride ourselves in the art of difficult communication, somehow the communication skills that bring us success with patients fall flat in the board room. In this session, we will identify the most common strengths found in HPC leaders and the strategies in leadership conversations that capitalize on those strengths. Successful phrases in leadership conversations will be discussed and then practiced. You will leave this session feeling ready, and maybe even excited, for the challenge of your next difficult leadership conversation to find the path to "Yes!"
- Recognize common HPM leader strengths and discover strategies in leadership conversations that lean into those strengths.
- Identify phrases that can be used successfully in leadership conversations.
- Practice phrases that can be helpful when advocating your position as a leader.

"This is a tool I can use for my own teams. It's not expensive and so worth the time! I even plan to share this with my own supervisor. Really terrific session!"
"Focusing on strengths buoys the whole team - individual growth and development, expanding strengths to reach other areas, and utilizing others' strengths to bolster our own or to complement our own is a huge boon to consistently fostering positive outcomes for my team and our patients and families in palliative care."
"Understanding my strengths allows me to further develop and utilize them in my daily practice."
