Activity Preview

Lead360: The Leader Within is APhA’s inaugural offering to empower pharmacists to take a purposeful approach to their professional and personal lives. This introspective experience helps participants discover and clarify the personal values, interests, strengths, and needs which inform, support and direct their personal and career goals. This self-discovery fuels individuals to lead from where they stand and take a “player” mindset in their lives.

The Leader Within is a live, in-person experience where participants will learn, connect, and share with a small group of peers. There will be at least one facilitator for every 12 people, providing for a more personalized experience. At the end of the weekend, participants will:

  • Demonstrate what motivates them to be a leader.
  • Identify and leverage their personal leadership strengths and how to address their weaknesses.
  • Recognize the importance of meeting their personal needs and following their interests to promote grit and resilience.

Participants will be more self-aware and be able to apply what they have learned to better align personal values, interests, strengths and needs with those of the organizations and teams they are part of (e.g. work, professional organizations, family, community groups).

Participants have the option to extend their leader development journey through a 3 month virtual cohort experience following completion of the live session.
