Sign up for the free live session with two physician development coaches, who will follow up on their recent tweet chat on the subject.
Emotion is a sensitive subject, but an important one for health care leaders. That was the consensus from a recent tweet chat involving participants representing several medical fields.
“Many times I've been told my tears gave others permission to cry,” one person tweeted during Tuesday’s online discussion. “There is so much pent up sadness in health care.”
Physicians, nurses, managers, executives, medical students and patient advocates were among the contributors to the chat on “secrets to becoming an emotionally intelligent leader.”
On Wednesday, there will be an opportunity to dig deeper into the topic.
Physician development coaches Deborah Munhoz, MS, PCC, and Helane Fronek, MD, FACP, FACPh, who moderated the Twitter conversation, will again share their expertise during a webinar presented by the American Association for Physician Leaders.
The free session is scheduled for noon EDT Wednesday. To register, go to http://bit.ly/2wQSeho.
Tuesday’s tweet chat elicited ways leaders can benefit from expressing emotions as well as tactics for doing so in a constructive way.
“Emotions can be motivating,” one participant tweeted. “Emotions light a fire under a mission. Triggering an emotional response is memorable! Including memorable to those holding your financial fate. Investors love a passionate team with a terrific, innovative story.”
Knowing when to show emotions was also considered an asset.
“Leaders must embrace equanimity and composure,” wrote one tweeter.

Munhoz assists clients with developing leadership potential without burning out. Fronek focuses on helping clients “reconnect with themselves” to stave off chronic dissatisfaction and burnout, according to #HCLDR, an online community for health care leaders who organized the tweet chat.
