Early Career Leaders Community of Practice

The Early Career Leaders Community of Practice is a network of new and early career leaders from all three campuses and Michigan Medicine. The community of practice aims to provide professional development, networking opportunities and best practices with three to four events per year and networking/information sharing in the Early Career Leaders group on Workplace. The September 2021 session will focus on daring leadership in times of transition.

Daring Leadership in Times of Transition

Building on Brené Brown’s Daring Leadership, Kelcey Stratton will introduce vulnerability and empathy to build resilience in yourself, your team and your community in this session. Daring leaders can cultivate resilience during times of change and difficulty through the skills of emotional awareness, flexibility and connection. A summary of the last event introducing Brené Brown’s armored versus daring leadership will be provided.
