Finding Your Leadership Self: Professionally and Personally

Tuesday, November 9, 2021 | 6:45pm - 8:00pm MT

Location: Virtual via Zoom

Join the APTA Colorado Pediatric SIG for a virtual course, Finding Your Leadership Self: Professionally and PersonallyThis session will focus on several different paths for developing leadership as a pediatric physical therapist, in the APTA or other professional organizations, and in personal life situations. By highlighting the development of leadership, we will explore how to capitalize on opportunities, and how to think of oneself as a leader even before you may feel “ready” to take on a leadership role. More specifically, the session will examine leadership at many levels of APTA, in your own clinical practice as a pediatric physical therapist, and in your personal community. The goal of this session is to lead PSIG members to think more actively on how they can contribute, gain leadership skills, and offer themselves as leaders professionally and personally.

Registration for this event is donation based and open to all members and non-members.
