About Course #Q3538
Release Date: March 28, 2017
Expiration Date: March 28, 2020
Leadership is a complex topic that is best deconstructed to understand its parts and empower application. This basic-level course is designed to define leadership theories and models that frame current leadership practices. An exploration of various styles of leadership will enable learners to reflect on their own leadership practices and/or create a leadership plan for the application of new skills. The combination of leadership and mentorship education will enhance current healthcare practice to secure the future of the profession for the well-being of the clients served. In physical therapy curricula, leadership is addressed - but just the tip of the iceberg. Students may be exposed to learning and teaching styles, or leadership training may be offered in the workplace and perhaps through mentorship opportunities. These opportunities may lack proper definition of leadership theories and models that would enable the learner to be successful in leadership roles.
