In addition to covering the how-tos of becoming a published author, this session will teach you to market your book in ways that support your leadership work.

We will explore endeavors that work as powerful adjuncts to a book, such as webinars, online study programs, consulting, product or program development, and speaking. Case examples of savvy healthcare leaders will bring the material to life.

Through discussion and hands-on exercises, you will gain understanding of the language of the CFO in order to be a more successful and collaborative leader.

Shelley Carson, PhD

A 3-hour interactive workshop for healthcare professionals who want to improve their psychological resilience skills and use these skills to help those they lead negotiate the rapid-change climate of the 21st century.

Humans, and especially women, have a great capacity to bounce back—and even grow—from adversity. In this workshop, we will focus on evidence-based resilience skills across a range of cognitive, emotional, physiological, social, and self-care areas.
