Productive Conflict – The Power of In-The-Moment Conversations - Chuck Duke, Nicholas Dann

The session will focus on the  objectives below and how you can apply these to your occupational medicine program, and its outreach via onsite clinics, as well as internal employee occupational health services program. The focus can be on your own staff first, and then used as a value add for your client population to build a cohesive team.


1. Learn why great leaders are both conflict avoiders and conflict seekers.

2. Explain which commonly accepted behaviors in the workplace are actually destructive responses to conflict.

3. Discover how practicing In The Moment Conversations with your team members can lead to life long leadership lessons

Leadership Role Development - Julie Parkhill

When given the responsibility of developing employees, naturally our thoughts turn to training operational tasks that coincide with management. In an effort to develop employees and not just train them to do a task, leaders must turn to leadership development skills.


1. Define leadership development versus operational training

2. Develop leadership skills that align with your company's mission

3. Identify tools that assist in leadership development from the onboarding step and forward

Effective Job Descriptions - Donna Lee Gardner

SHRM, the Society for Human Resource Management defines A job description as “a useful, plain-language tool that explains the tasks, duties, function and responsibilities of a position.” Research has identified that overlooked, inaccurate, and outdated job descriptions can have a negative effect on working environments. In this presentation we discuss the steps needed to develop a meaningful description, the purpose of your own job descriptions, and the uses of the job description in management

How to Boost Cognitive Resilience - David Frances, PhD

Leaders are expected to be resilient, especially when the people they lead are challenged on a daily basis by unprecedented global events. This program provides a framework for prioritizing resilience improvement measures.  It focuses on how peoples’ characteristic thinking behavior influences their ability to be resilient, especially when they are tasked with leading others.  It offers a variety of techniques and resources, with emphasis on identifying and disputing irrational, self-defeating thinking habits that may impede resilience.


1. Define a context for understanding how to improve resilience 

2. Describe how resilience is predicated upon rational thinking 

3. Identify techniques to confront thinking habits that can interfere with leadership resilience
