Professional Association of Residences of Ontario (PARO)
PARO delivers leadership training to new physicians as part of their mandate. These young doctors are beginning careers in which they will assume a variety of very important leadership roles: as family physicians, as business owners, as specialists, as hospital administrators and in a variety of other roles. The demands of leadership are many and diverse. High performance as a leader is critical.
Summit worked with PARO to design eight themed 5-hour modules that each examines a key dimension of leadership and unfolds over 2 years for each cohort.
The initial module sets the stage with a riveting keynote presentation and workshop with Summit President and mountaineer Scott Kress. The second session features a powerful high ropes course experience that helps them examine their perceptions of risk and develop a strong, trust-based bond as a group. Subsequent modules look at personal styles with the Myers Briggs Type Inventory, Emotional Intelligence with EQi 2.0, Leadership Styles, Communication,
Change and Conflict. All the sessions include applications to the medical environment that the participants are currently experiencing.
We Rethought Everything
PARO has partners for year with Summit for most of our training and Board of Director needs. They have repeatedly delivered high quality, current events, that have given great value to our membership. Summit developed for us an 8-module leadership development program that is delivered over a 2-year period. This program has provided great value to our members and enrollment grows every year with a waiting list.
