SSWLHC Leadership Event
May 4th, 2018

The SSWLHC-WA will be hosting the SSWLHC Leadership Institute in Seattle, WA this May! The Institute will take place on Friday May 4th from 8AM-5PM and Saturday, May 5th from 8AM-12: 30 PM. The Leadership Institute (LI) is a unique offering that will bring WA State social workers together to explore and enhance our power to lead change in healthcare settings. The program is appropriate for experienced leaders, developing leaders, formal leaders, and informal leaders. This opportunity will highlight how we can use leadership as a skill rather than a title or a role.

The goals of the LI are to:
-Appreciate, demonstrate and communicate the unique role of social work leaders and leadership in healthcare.
-Identify assumptions about leadership; understand personal leadership styles and competencies.
-Identify core leadership competencies and articulate ways to leverage them to achieve specific goals within their institutions.
-Define and explore the relationship between core social work knowledge, skills and values and the practice of effective leadership behavior by social work professionals.
