The leadership facilitator serves as the small group's resource, catalyst, and facilitator. The leadership facilitator is not expected to serve as a program participant's long-term mentor. Leadership facilitators will work with a small group of up to seven participants throughout the 2-day program. Because facilitators have considerable interaction with the participants, it is one of the most critical roles on the faculty team during the AAHPM Leadership Forum. Specific roles include
- modeling leadership behavior
- guiding group discussions by using scenarios to translate program content to a practical, transferrable context for the learners for immediate applicability to their own unique roles and practice settings
- challenging thinking and encouraging reflection and feedback.
