Continuing Leadership as a Mentor

LC-2_CCL2One of the most distinctive qualities of the Leadership College and the Institute for Physician Leadership is that the courses are designed and often taught by physicians. To assist those physicians, the College educated 20 Leadership College alumni to serve as mentors and faculty members for incoming Leadership College scholars. The goal of the Leadership College Faculty Training program was to facilitate interactions between more experienced alumni physicians and new scholars participating in the College.

This program works in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), a worldwide innovator in leadership training and research. Working with CCL allowed the alumni to identify the specific faculty role that they will play in the Leadership College curriculum.

“As a Leadership College mentor, I can offer my experiences and connections with other scholars in different agencies across the state and help them make connections in their work and interests,” said Gerri Mattson, MD, mentor from the second class of Leadership College II. “Learning how to mentor others is a great way for me to grow as a leader.”

If you are a physician who is interested in participating in Leadership College, the opportunity of having a mentor who has graduated from the program is invaluable. For those Leadership College scholars who have graduated, becoming a mentor is a great opportunity to share your experiences and continue to pave the way for future leaders.
