Keynote: Navigating the Wilderness: Tales of Leadership
Kerry Fierke, EdD

Leadership often involves exploring unknown territories, setting direction, preparing for inevitable conflict and finding our way “through the woods.” While we may long for calm waters, often it’s the dangerous rapids — the challenges, the obstacles — that transform us as leaders. As we traverse our own leadership journey, we can find inspiration and courage together, which helps prepare us for the adventures ahead.

After participating in this session, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Define various leadership models applicable to practice;
  • Identify the leadership/followership roles and how to prepare the next generation;
