Pathology_FindYourElementAre you falling into the same daily routine? Searching for inspiration? Looking for new leadership skills to use going forward in your career?

Then join our department of pathology as they host Find Your Element: Traveling the Winding Road to Leadership, a unique “TED-like” workshop focused on leadership and the road to success in health care and beyond!

The workshop will take place Saturday, August 29, 2015 from 7:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at Arthur Miller Theatre (1226 Murfin Ave., Ann Arbor, MI 48109) on the University of Michigan Ann Arbor’s North Campus and features an exceptional guest speaker lineup of visionaries, medical leaders and executives.

We’ll have you inspired right from the beginning of the workshop. Sir Ken Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, will serve as the keynote speaker kicking off the workshop by focusing on the often unexpected turns that characterize the road to success.

Sir Robinson is a visionary cultural leader. In 1998 he led the British government’s advisory committee on creative and cultural education, a massive inquiry into the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy, and was knighted in 2003 for his achievements. His books inspire and guide people to find their own element in the journey to leadership and success.

We’ll build upon Sir Robinson’s remarks with guest speakers from across the medical industry including:

  • Maria Braman, chief medical officer/vice president of medical affairs for St. Peter’s Hospital in Helena, MT,
  • Kathleen Cho, Peter A. Ward professor of pathology and vice chair for academic affairs at the University of Michigan Medical School,
  • Julia Dahl, pathologist, chief executive officer and medical director of The Mosaic Companies in Memphis, TN,
  • Blair Holladay, chief executive officer of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP),
  • Barbara McKenna, Godfrey D. Stobbe professor in pathology education and director of pathology education programs at the University of Michigan Medical School,
  • Jeffrey Myers, A. James French professor of diagnostic pathology, vice chair for clinical affairs and quality, and director of the divisions of anatomic pathology and MLabs in the department of pathology at the University of Michigan, and
  • Mark Slade, consultant respiratory physician and specialty director for cardiology and respiratory medicine at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust based in Cheltenham, U.K.

Each guest speaker will tell his/her story in 20 minute “TED-like” presentations followed by a panel discussion guaranteed to encourage participation from attendees.
