Given the current financial uncertainty, how medical institutions survive, thrive or not in the future will depend on the leadership that guides them. The fundamental question for leaders within in medicine is Why should anyone be led by YOU? Couple this with the fact that pediatric hospital medicine is an extremely young field. Pediatric hospitalists have been placed in leadership positions at a far younger age than most other medical specialties. This workshop is meant for anyone who is currently or has aspirations to be a leader in pediatric hospital medicine. The purpose will be to study leadership and most importantly, how one can become an inspirational leader. Leadership will be studied through examination of cases from both the medical field and the business world. There will be lessons from the fields of cognitive psychology and behavioral economics to understand what motivates and how to motivate people. Finally, there will be a number of self-reflective exercises that will enable one to examine one's strengths, but even more importantly, one s weaknesses as a leader.
