The Neuropsychology of Strategic Thinking


This course will facilitate a shift perspective in how we think about, understand, and implement strategic thinking. This course will define strategic thinking in neuropsychological terms and address both the conscious and, perhaps more significantly, the unconscious components of effective strategic thinking and it’s obstacles. Key to any successful shift in behavior is the understanding of how positive behavior change works in the body, brain and mind. Thus, this course will traverse topics including the psychology of strategic thinking, executive functioning and brain development, innate temperament, and the function of the ego in thinking effectively.  The approach is holistic in nature and will be immediately impactful in approaching both everyday leadership responsibilities and long-term organizational strategies. Finally, this course is both personal and universal in its application and focuses on the fundamental aspects of being human.

The American Association for Physician Leadership has helped physicians develop their leadership skills through education, career development, thought leadership and community building.

The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) changed its name from the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in 2014. We may have changed our name, but we are the same organization that has been serving physician leaders since 1975.
