SEATTLE, March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The formation of large groups of employee physicians across the US, combined with the modern physician burnout epidemic (1) has spawned a huge new market for training in Physician Leadership. Many larger healthcare providers are building or buying leadership development courses and executive coaching programs specifically aimed at physicians in new leadership positions. This impulse is logical and honorable and yet fails to address a pre-existing impediment to physicians assuming administrative leadership roles.
The leadership paradigm physicians absorb during their medical education becomes a huge handicap when that same doctor moves up into a manager's role. This promotion is a classic case of the "Peter Principle". The physicians often "rise to the level of their incompetence" due to a set of automatic behaviors they must un-learn in order to be successful in their new role.
Simply enrolling physicians in the same leadership development trainings as their non-physician counterparts is a mistake. The physicians are handicapped by their default, top-down leadership paradigm and are unable to lead a team in any other way. "The physician gives orders and the rest of the team obeys or complies", is a leadership style that will not work in an administrative role.
This is exactly why the TheHappyMD.com developed the new online video training series titled:
"Physician Leadership's Dirty Little Secrets".
