Program Options


In this track radiologists at any career stage will learn about, develop, and nurture a coaching mindset which will help grow their emotional intelligence.  The goal for the program is for the radiologist to learn how to use coaching tools to enhance interactions and performance both professionally and personally.  

This course uses the 4-square framework described by Dr. Hicks to conduct helping conversations in professional interactions, to adopt solution-focused thinking and move from transactional to transformational leadership. This longitudinal commitment involves virtual didactic and coaching sessions that last throughout the academic year.

Our goals for the participants are to:

  • Understand and grow a coaching mindset
  • Use coaching perspectives to help grow your own emotional intelligence
  • Use coaching tools to enhance interactions and performance
  • For some, to inspire you to purse more formal training and function as an effective coach
The ultimate derivatives of adopting coach like behaviors are both individualized and group success, which engender enhanced loyalty, commitment, and enthusiasm for continuous renewal of deep satisfaction.

Success Strategies

In this track, radiologists at any career stage will learn about and discuss a range of topics associated with career success and avoiding pitfalls, including identifying attributes of a good mentor/mentee, how to give and receive feedback, basic concepts of radiology productivity and the revenue cycle, basic negotiation skills, career pathways and tracks to leadership, maintaining work-life balance, and long-term career and financial planning. Through focused readings and candid discussions, this track will help prepare the next generation of radiologists for continued life and work accomplishments.
