Workshop 23: Selecting Leadership Styles to Improve Team Performance

Wednesday, May 16
15:15 - 16:45
Location: Saturn 1&2

Course Goal or Outcome: : During this workshop, participants will assess their predominant leadership style and will consider alternative leadership styles for dealing with a variety of situations.


Learning Objectives: : After this workshop, participants will be able to:
1) Identify their preferred personal leadership style, as well as its inherent strengths and limitations.
2) Demonstrate the ability to apply suitable situational/leadership styles to a variety of team-based situations.
3) Describe strategies for tailoring individual leadership styles based upon the interpersonal characteristics.


Intended Audience: : Educators, administrators at any level

Relevance to the Conference: : Leadership skills are critical for coordinating a healthcare team. Daniel Goleman describes six leadership styles that have a direct impact on the working atmosphere and performance of an organization. Individual providers have an inherent preference towards a particular style, based upon their personality, conflict resolution style, and interpersonal skills. However, research suggests that people who shift their leadership style based upon circumstances are most successful.

The six leadership styles are:
• Pace-setting
• Authoritative
• Affiliative
• Coaching
• Coercive
• Democratic

This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about, and then to practice, the application of various leadership styles for healthcare providers and educators. Participants will leave the workshop with an individualized assessment of their own leadership styles as well as an understanding the strengths and limitations of that leadership style. Multimedia triggers and an audience response system will be used to lead participants through a variety of exercises to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the six leadership styles. Participants will next be divided into small groups where case vignettes will be utilized as the basis for role playing exercises which will permit participants to practice “kinetic” leadership, i.e. adjusting one’s own leadership style to better fit the team and/or situational needs.

This topic is important to medical and simulation educators, as leadership skills are critical for effective functioning of a medical team. The format offers many opportunities for interaction, and various instructional methods.
