Leadership Begins at the Edge of Your Comfort Zone: Managing Self and Leading Adaptively

Patty Sheridan, MBA, RHIA, FAHIMA

Join us for this encore presentation by speaker Patty Sheridan who presented Lead Anytime, Anywhere: Your Leadership Edge at the WHIMA Virtual Annual Conference. Exercising leadership from any seat almost always requires individuals and groups to make a challenging adaptation if they want to make progress on initiatives important to them and their organization. Leadership Begins at the Edge of Your Comfort Zone introduces the idea that to be more effective you need to expand your own personal leadership bandwidth by pushing beyond what is comfortable.  This interactive presentation discusses a different way of thinking about leadership drawing from adaptive leadership and Bowen Theory concepts. This presentation will help participants reflect on their leadership edge and rather than be afraid of that edge embrace it to make progress on challenges important to them.
