Clinician Leaders (MD, DO, NP, RN) Coaching & Mentoring

From Clinician to Clinician Leader

So, you’ve been tapped to step into clinician leadership. Now what?

Healthcare organizations are looking for clinicians with the leadership skills to be effective communicators, powerful influencers, and motivators who are proactive. These innovative leaders can position themselves and their organizations for the next level of success.

You’ve spent a long time focusing on your clinical education and experience. Now you are stepping into the administrative leadership realm and discovering that your honed skills do not quite translate in the corporate space. Administrative leadership requires communication, collaboration, team building, conflict management, and consensus-building skills. It also involves operational and budgetary decisions that help support and develop the vision and objectives of the organization.

Successful Clinician leaders build core competencies to: 

  • Articulate and implement a vision
  • Assemble and lead effective and productive teams
  • Deliver clear and impactful presentations
  • Embrace diversity and work effectively with different personalities
  • Embrace delegation and manage accountability
  • Be emotionally intelligent and self-aware
  • Influence and motivate the corporate culture
  • Lead effective meetings
  • Manage and facilitate change and performance improvement
  • Manage multiple priorities
  • Resolve and manage conflicts
  • Solve organizational challenges through collaboration with others

When you effectively do all of the above, you know you have successfully transitioned from a clinical champion to an administrative clinician leader.
