Navigating Your Leadership Pathways

Advancing Leadership Across the Health Sciences

This program serves as a leadership innovation hub for medical trainees and faculty in the schools of medicine and nursing at UC Davis Health and seeks out opportunities for faculty at all levels, from early- and mid-career to senior-level careers.

Leadership development opportunities focus on pathways for leadership growth through external offerings like the year-long Executive Leadership in Medicine (ELAM) fellowship for women, and leadership development seminars for women and minority faculty available through the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).

This program also identifies other innovative leadership programs and the pathways for faculty participation.

Effective Delegation

It will be faster if I just do it myself!”. Haven’t we all had this thought and acted on it? Yet, we also took away the chance to learn and grow by tackling a tough project from one of our mentees. How can we delegate effectively while maintaining an appropriate level of evaluation and control?

In this class, we are going to learn how to delegate effectively by learning how to:

  • Assign responsibility, delegate authority and create accountability
  • Spot barriers to effective delegation and how to navigate them
  • Set up a clear process for delegation with the delegate
  • Develop a communication plan with people we delegate to

This workshop is part of our Emotionally Intelligent Leader Program.
