Residents will focus on personal leadership and habits for personal success, organizational leadership and transformation change management. Residents will gain an understanding about issues in leadership and how to constructively handle their own typical human emotional responses to leadership situations.

Learning methods include reading, discussion, reflective writing, and ongoing interaction with managers and leaders.
