Congratulations to Dr. Nicole Nielsen for Being Selected to Participate in California Pharmacists Association’s Leadership Development Institute

 

We are pleased to announce that Nicole M. Nielsen, PharmD, BCACP, Assistant Professor of Clinical Sciences at California Health Sciences University College of Pharmacy has been selected to participate in the next cycle of California Pharmacists Association (CPhA) Leadership Development Institute.

In 2013, CPhA partnered with the nonprofit Pharmacy Leadership & Education Institute to launch Leader Development Institute (LDI), an annual program aimed at developing the transformative leaders that CPhA requires to effectively pursue its mission: “To advance the practice of pharmacy for the promotion of health.”

LDI is a 9-month leader development program consisting of four in-person sessions, with individual and small group work performed “virtually” in between session. This program’s unique approach to leader development challenges its participants to first examine their current approaches to leadership in their daily lives and assess how their current strategies are working for them. This intensive self-examination allows participants to discover their “blind spots” and make the choice to create the space they need to adopt and assess new philosophies and practices presented to them throughout the program.

What differentiates CPhA’s LDI program from many other leadership seminars is its emphasis on self-awareness and discovery, and the deliberate application and practice of leadership skills (vs. simple knowledge acquisition).  While attendance at the four, daylong live sessions is critical, it is really the work that attendees perform in their daily lives between sessions that makes the biggest impact on their lives.  A “Learning Coordinator” and members of a 3-4 person “Learning Pod” support participants in the performance of this interstitial work.

LDI participants develop a project that represents a personal and significant passion for them, a topic of interest to CPhA members or is applicable to the organization, and embraces the engagement, empowerment, and leadership of others.

Dr. Nielsen says, “I am excited to be selected for this opportunity and am looking forward on how I can further develop as a leader in both the pharmacy profession and mentor students to develop into strong leaders.”
