Management: Advancement

Live Webinar: Part 3 of 3
Tuesday, June 25, 2019
12 - 1:15pm ET




Organized and hosted by the AAMC Foundation this live three-part series will take a refreshed look at the subject of management. By focusing on Navigation, Environment and Advancement, the webinars will break with the traditional hierarchical and vertical manner in which conversations around management are typically approached. Each program will present dialogues relevant to all career stages, and will consider ways in which the topic can impact sense of self, well-being, and personal success.

Building on the first two conversations, the final installment in this series considers the use of self-promotion and value recognition.  In addition, the conversation looks into adjusting and learning during periods of transitional and structural changes due to a personal career move and those that occur with teams, colleagues, and leadership.
