Teaching Presence to Residents: A Workshop on Leadership

Residents are expected to be leaders in the roles they assume but are infrequently provided the tools to develop these leadership skills. ‘Leadership presence’ is a key aspect of leadership development and defined by self-control, authenticity, drive, service, respect and fundamentally asserting one’s technical skills and values.

Our workshop is designed to give medical educators a tangible approach to teaching leadership presence to residents. We will focus on two domains in which leadership presence can have a significant impact: 1. clinical presence specific to leading rounds, running a rapid response and running a code; 2. non-clinical or professional presence including program engagement, menteeship and job interviewing. Pulling from the science on leadership, the workshop will include interactive exercises that will help the participants become familiar with the concept of leadership presence and practice activities that they can use towards building a resident leadership curriculum.
