For the first cohort, 14 ASE members, representing all areas of our membership, were selected from a pool of over 50 very qualified and talented applicants. The overwhelming interest for this program confirmed the need and desire for leadership training from our members in their early to mid-careers. The inaugural class launched in November 2018 with the kickoff meeting, “Leadership Development Within a Culture of Trust,” that was held in North Carolina as a full-day introduction session. It was facilitated by AAPL faculty member, Dr. Matum Gautam, an experienced lecturer on clinician leadership. The Leadership Academy participants will also participate in CPITM assessments at the start and end of the program. CPI assessment can be used to enhance leadership competencies by assessing individuals' orientation toward people, rules, and values as well as their inner feelings. The CPI assessments identify which competencies are strengths and which are areas of opportunity. Leadership Academy participants will acquire the appropriate fundamentals to be highly competitive for future leadership roles in ASE, other organizations, and in serving the community as a whole. Participants will gain knowledge through: Receiving guidance from a wide-range of leaders in the field. These leaders will candidly share their successes and failures in their leadership roles and be available for open dialogue on all issues. Examining their own leadership style and learn how to put that style into action. Learning the fundamentals of leadership in an ever-changing medical environment. Enhancing their leadership skills to excel within the business world, organized medicine, medical staffs, group and corporate practices, and the public policy arena. While completion of the ASE Leadership Academy does not automatically guarantee a spot in ASE’s leadership, this program will help participants be the best possible candidate for future openings. ASE’s Bylaws were amended to include one graduate from the ASE Leadership Academy to be elected to ASE’s Board of Directors beginning June 2021.
