Today women represent more than 50% of the medical school class, yet only hold 20% of the positions in the C-suite. My own journey with leadership was by trial and error. I wanted to represent the 20% but quickly realized, there was no leadership path to follow or defined curriculum to teach me the skills I needed to adjust quickly to this new role. I struggled with balancing work and family, navigating our complex healthcare system, and trying to find my voice in leadership. After 20 years in the healthcare field with leadership roles in academia, public health, the insurance industry, and hospital administration, my mission is to help increase the number of women physicians in leadership roles by equipping them with the personal and professional development skills they need to be successful. Women physicians are often deterred from seeking leadership roles due to the lack of organizational support of work-life integration, gender equity, racial discrimination, and equality in pay. Having women in leadership roles not only creates the pipeline for future leaders but also improves the delivery of care to the communities we serve.

    Thinking about physician leadership? 5 Ways to Prepare Yourself For the C-Suite

    Thinking about physician leadership? 5 Ways to Prepare Yourself For the C-Suite

    Are you often asked to lead? Maybe you’re charged with leading a small department or committee. Maybe you’re offered a formal role and title and not sure if you’re ready. This can happen at any time and you want to be prepared. 
    Our healthcare system is becoming more complex and undergoing change very rapidly. Unfortunately, but a lot of what we're seeing in terms of administrators and people, the people making decisions are not those who are doing the work every day, who are on or have been on the frontlines or who have experience of what it means to really care for an individual and to care for families and to care for communities.
    This is the reason why I'm so passionate about increasing the number of physician leaders to change the status quo in healthcare. 
    So, if you’re thinking about leadership, in this episode you will discover the five ways that you can prepare yourself for leadership. 
    If you’re ready to transition into a leadership role and need support during your career journey join our private Facebook group Building Women Physician Leaders where you will receive insight and wisdom from an experienced leadership coach and an awesome group of like-minded women. You can go to www.leadingladiesincharge.com and join us today!
    Don’t forget about our upcoming Rise Up & Lead Conference taking place on February 3rd National Women Physicians Day with a VIP day on February 2nd. The early bird ticket is available now at www.riseupandleadconference.com
