CPL Leadership Development Programs

While healthcare organizations may share similar challenges, our experience leads us to conclude that the diversity of healthcare culture dictates the need for customized approaches. Unlike other leadership programs that offer templates or “off the shelf” solutions, CPL uses our core knowledge-base and works with your organization to develop customized physician leadership programs that assure success for your organization and its culture.

We know that great leaders develop a broad set of skills to work up and down multiple levels of an organization and across multiple healthcare silos. As a physician leader rises in official responsibility, relationship building, communication, and interpersonal skills drive success.

In order to develop these skills, we have identified 12 core leadership competencies to be mastered. We have a robust curriculum of didactic and experiential learning tools to assure skill mastery, and ongoing support programs to sustain development.

Challenges we address in our programs include (but are not limited to):

  • Shifting the physician leader mindset from “fixer” to “facilitator”
  • Thriving during rapid change
  • Building and embedding a collaborative culture
  • Seeing potential in conflict
  • Becoming effective communicators
  • Building colleague and team engagement
  • Creating an environment of empowerment and optimism
  • Building resilience in themselves and their teams
