Management: Navigation

Live Webinar: Part 1 of 3
Tuesday, June 11, 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.

This session considers different management styles, and speakers discuss how to identify and develop a personal management identity. They also discuss how recognizing and appreciating different management styles can advance understanding and reconciling conflict.
