LAMP Leadership 201: Advanced Leadership Development

The Catalyst for Leading Others (15.5 CEs)


Leadership doesn’t require a title.  You can lead up, down and across your team.  This program is for anyone interested in understanding himself or herself so that they can then develop skills to lead others.  Whether you are a student, early professional or seasoned/formal leader, this certificate program offers “a-ha” moments of personal and professional growth.  This program is designed for anyone in the healthcare field.  We have provided training to PT, PTA, OT, COTA, SLP, Physicians, Nurses, Human Resources, Coders, educators and others in the field. 

With rapid changes in the dynamics of the healthcare work environment, leadership is now more important than ever before.   In order to be a successful leader, you must be your own first follower.  By understanding your core values, personal mission and vision, you can ensure that you are leading others with authenticity.  Learning your default communication and conflict resolution styles, you can then understand how to meet others where they are.  Once you understand yourself, you can then seek to understand others and how to lead them.  

HPA the Catalyst offers the LAMP Institute of Leadership Certificate in Healthcare Leadership, which focuses on personal and professional growth is earned once you’ve completed the following elements of the program.  In each dynamic program there will be self-assessment tools utilized.  While there is didactic material, the learning style is primarily experiential.  Through lively discussion and activities, you will apply what you are learning.

  • Identify and discuss personal characteristics of adaptive and transformational leaders;
