This seminar is designed for mental health professionals, physicians, medical directors and other health professionals and all executives who wish to have an understanding of the leadership principles which impact the success of organizations (both large and small) and those who lead. The seminar includes a unique application of both the psychological principles of human behavior (the view from the “inside out”) and the fundamental facets of organization structure and accountability (the view from the “outside in”). These principles have been used successfully in seminars, organizational consultations, and executive coaching to major corporations, government, family businesses, health care, as well as large and small 501C3’s. The concepts from this seminar have proven relevant to health care leaders who have had a variety of experience and seniority. Therefore, this seminar is useful for the following: those with significant experience and seniority in managing complex organizations; those who are new to or have limited experience in leadership roles and could benefit from an understanding of organizational function, including individuals who have been elected by their peers to a leadership position; past participants of The Department of Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School courses on Leadership for Physician Executives and/or Accountable Leadership for Healthcare Teams, and those who provide advice and support to healthcare leaders, including serving on boards.


Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:


  • Identify methods for enhancing organizational effectiveness;
  • Develop strategies and practices to be a more effective leader;
  • Develop a more systematic framework for understanding individual dynamics in organizational systems;
  • Analyze, clarify, and solve problems pertaining to organizations and roles of their workers;
