Leadership is more important than ever as we continue to navigate times of uncertainty and complexity and unknown unknowns. This is a time that requires leaders to show confidence while they may themselves struggle with the complexity of the situation. As leaders during a context like the present,  it is even more important leaders are able to share a vision for others and keep communicating openly and honestly.

We continue to offer free executive coaching with a certified business coach. To gain even more value from this, take the Leadership Circle assessment  and sign up for coaching using this tool with Kristina Natt och Dag at tnattochdag@ncmedsoc.org or email Aubrey Cuthbertson at acuthbertson@ncmedsoc.org to be assigned one of the certified coaches we have partnered with.

Additional Resources

If you are a provider who is looking to volunteer, click here for information from the state on how medical volunteers may sign up to help.

The NCMS has also put together a list of resources for your well-being and self-care. Additional resources:

  • Physicians Support Line, which is a national and free peer support line for physicians and recently featured on the NBC Nightly News. If you are not a physician, you can call the toll free number and receive number prompts that will guide and connect you to National Disaster Distress Line and more recently to the critical workers for mental health support line.
  • Hope4Healers, a newly created option staffed by a large volunteer force of licensed mental health professionals providing pro bono mental health support for health care workers at the front lines and their families.

There are two great meditation apps that currently are offering free services: the apps Ten Percent Happier and  Headspace both feature readily accessible meditations.

The North Carolina Psychiatric Association has also assembled a list of resources for mental health support: NCPA COVID-19 Resources

About the Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership

Since 2003, the NC Medical Society Foundation has recognized the importance of leadership among clinicians. Leadership can however not be treated simply as an afterthought. To drive the transformation of health care and ensure the strong leadership in medicine and  improve access to quality health care for all North Carolinians, leadership is a crucial aspect. The Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership provides the resources and tools necessary to be the leaders we need in health care. 

The Institute’s foundational belief is that clinicians, heading collaborative teams, are best suited to lead clinical transformation that achieves true patient-centered care. Clinicians possess the key clinical knowledge and skills needed to guide and lead these important changes. Honing and applying your leadership skills is a dynamic, empowering and inspiring process. Combining what you know about care and quality with a desire to lead, will produce dramatic innovations that will benefit you and your patients, and our society overall.

Since the launch of Leadership College in 2003 and the Kanof Institute in 2012, the Institute encompasses a statewide network of clinician leaders who have successfully completed professional development coursework through one of the programs offered through the Institute. These alumni have successfully applied and implemented their personal and professional leadership roles in the emerging health care system.

The Institute currently includes three open educational programs focusing on leadership fundamentals and also offers customized programs. Learn more about which one is right for you:
