Leadership Development Webinar Series 

Creating a Positive Workplace and Culture


NOTE: Registration for this event is currently sold out.  Please email Terry Ryan if you wish to be placed on the waiting list. We will be recording the event for anyone who is unable to attend the live webinar.

Date: Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Time: 1:00 pm Eastern Time

Webinar Description:  Imagine coming to work each day where inspiration, curiosity, trust, achievement and engagement are the norm.  What impact would that have on your School?  This concept does not just exist in our theoretical ideals.  The empirically-based discipline of positive psychology shows us how to thrive and create this environment in our professional and personal lives.

In this webinar, you will learn how to begin to concurrently create job satisfaction and life satisfaction, grow innovation, creativity, productivity and achievement through collaboration, inspiration and authenticity, and focus on strengths and positive emotion instead of weakness, remediation and self-justification.

Leadership Development SIG Webinar 1 

Topic: Demonstrating Pharmacy’s Contributions towards  Achieving Improved Therapeutic, Safety, Humanistic and Economic Outcomes: Successful Examples, Lessons Learned, and Future Directions.

Transforming our healthcare system to one that provides better health, health outcomes, and access to care, requires leaders who:  1) advance health care through clinical excellence,  2) actively contribute to design/redesign more effective and cost-efficient models of care,  3) promote health in their communities, 4) display organizational leadership,  5) participate in advocacy and policy development,  and 6) advance discovery, research, and scholarship.  Student pharmacists, residents and graduate students can play a key role in expanding the capacity and “diffusion” of best practices by learning how to successfully, transform, document, advocate and sustain innovations in their chosen field.  Schools should in their training programs provide learning experiences that promote creative approaches in addressing evolving needs and opportunities.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Summarize studies involving the contributions of  pharmacists towards achieving better therapeutic, safety, and humanistic outcomes, with a focus on challenges, lessons learned, and recommendations
  • Develop a system to document clinical and economic impact of student pharmacists
  • Describe the impact of school initiatives aimed at promoting healthy communities
