CE Course: Leadership 101 for Oral Health Professionals

Leadership 101 for Oral Health Professionals

Course Description

What is leadership and do we all need to have it? Is it a learned ability or given talent? Can we just be followers and be comfortable in our settings without all being leaders? Come explore these questions as they directly relate to your work, home, or personal life. Apply these concepts to self-awareness, self- improvement and the advancement of your organization, with YOU included. Life is more than being a bystander seeing what could be or thinking it is someone else’s job. Find ways to express your leadership skills. Our destiny begins with us. Come be a part of our future.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Define leadership and related terms
  • Assess ways leadership intertwines in communication, cultural sensitivity, and diversity
  • Apply new terms to personal growth
  • Apply concepts to organizational growth for all participants

2 live CE credits

  • Consists of a 2 hour live Zoom class session, incorporating activities and discussion.
