Head and Heart Leadership: Unlocking Your Potential
Calvin Guyer, MS, CFP, CPC
The fast paced and ever changing role of the laboratory leader calls for a highly engaged individual that not only has a high degree of emotional intelligence (EQ) but calls for a leader that can also teach others to strengthen their EQ. In this dynamic session we will draw a direct link between EQ and performance of the individual, work group, and organization. We will present and demonstrate an approach to developing a higher EQ called Energy Leadership. Every participant will leave the workshop with an Action Development Plan to strengthen their personal EQ around areas they select. Building on this concept of EQ, we will link an increase in EQ to dynamic succession planning within the laboratory. The participant will begin the process of developing the "how" (using a highly regarded Leadership Competency Framework) to the "what" (outlined in the Body of Knowledge).

Financial Management is the competency in healthcare finance, requiring sound financial management practices at all levels of experience, as well as an understanding of budgeting. The laboratory environment not only requires fiscal competence, but highly engaged leaders to lead their teams and organizations towards sound financial health. This course will cover key tools such as basic financial accounting, including cost accounting, benchmarking, expense evaluation and the preparation and interpretation of financial statements for internal managers and external stakeholders. This workshop will focus on internal uses of accounting information for decision making that lead to acquiring new technology and support the organizations strategic plan. Each participant will leave this workshop with an action plan for strengthening their self-selected areas of growth in financial management and the opportunity to see these principles in action through real case studies presented throughout the workshop.
