Leadership in Academic Medicine Pathway (LAMP)
Developing Human Centered Leadership

LAMP is a transformative learning experience designed with a human-centered leadership framework to complement the existing skillsets of College of Medicine physician, research, and staff leaders.  

Why human centered leadership?

A human-centered approach to leadership is critical for building relationships and teams, resolving conflict, solving problems, leading effectively, and building resilience. One of the most effective ways to master this approach is to build awareness of emotional intelligence skills, along with an ongoing commitment to practicing and improving these skills.

Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

How is Emotional Intelligence linked to leadership?

Fifteen years of research has shown that leaders tend to score higher in emotional intelligence than the general population. Leaders set the tone of their organization. If they lack emotional intelligence, it could have more far-reaching consequences, resulting in lower employee engagement and a higher turnover rate.

This program will help leaders fine-tune their leadership skills to adapt to the current healthcare and research environments. The program will provide a balance of theory, science, and practical applications, allowing participants to focus on a few specific skills that underlie broader leadership effectiveness.

What are the program components?

This five-month program includes :

  • the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) assessment
  • a virtual welcome
  • three in-person sessions
  • three coaching sessions

Project work will be focused on fine-tuning leadership competencies within the EQ-i model. Each participant will be matched up with an internal coach who is certified in the application of the EQ-i 2.0.

EQ-i 2.0 is the world’s leading measure of emotional intelligence, applying decades of research to support effective human performance and development. It has a high correlation with workplace and leadership performance. The subscales of the EQ-i model will serve as building blocks for reaching the participants’ leadership potential.

Who is eligible to apply for the program?

This transformative learning experience was designed to complement the existing skillsets of the ‘leaders of people’ within the College of Medicine, including physician, research, and staff leaders.

Applicants should be employed by the College of Medicine for one year and be in good standing.

Examples of positions that would be a good fit for this program include (but are not limited to) the following titles: Division Chief, Department Chair, Center Director, Assistant/Associate Dean, Program/Project Director, Research Director, Department Administrator, Assistant/Associate Director, etc .
