Relational Leadership: Creating High Performing and Engaged Teams to Achieve Greater Success and Reduce Burnout Across Practice Settings

Thursday, January 13 | 10:00 am – 11:00 am CST

Healthy work relationships reduce burnout. Effective teamwork in healthcare settings has been associated with better overall quality of care, greater patient satisfaction and improved morale of the health professional workforce. Yet achieving high performance teamwork is no small feat. In this presentation, Andrew Morris-Singer, MD, a primary care clinician, leadership consultant and former community organizer will discuss a style of leadership – Relational Leadership – that is foundational to helping healthcare teams thrive with higher levels of performance and greater engagement by team members. Dr. Morris-Singer will draw on examples from the frontlines of care delivery reform as well as an extensive body of research to showcase concrete relational strategies and programs that can be employed in almost any healthcare setting to help revitalize individuals and teams.
