Making the Case

Wednesday, January 29, February 5 and 12 ​

Have an idea you’d like to implement at Duke? Unsure how to craft the financial proposal or pitch your plans to key stakeholders? Making the Case is a hands-on, interactive program to learn the skills needed to transform an idea into a proposal. Over the course of three sessions you will develop or refine a business plan for your own idea, get feedback on stakeholders to engage and questions to ask, and practice pitching your proposal to a panel of mock judges. No actual funds will be awarded as part of this program. In order to participate you must come to the first session with a program or project idea that you would like to develop. This should be an idea that you want to move forward and that requires a budgetary component. Past examples include things like starting a new program, implementing a clinical redesign effort, launching a new division or center, or proposing a new system-wide workflow redesign. Sessions will include guidance on how to use and manipulate data using excel.

Presented by:

  • Sharon Hull, MD, MHS, Director of the Executive Coaching Program
  • Rossi Evans, MS, Assistant Dean of Budget and Finance
  • Susan Kline, MS, Chief Administrator, Department of Pediatrics

Where: 

  • Wednesday, January 29, 3:00-5:00pm, Location TBD
  • Wednesday, February 5, 3:00-5:00pm, Location TBD
  • Wednesday, February 12, 2:00-5:00pm, Location TBD

Who should attend: School of Medicine faculty who have an idea they’d like to pitch or develop. Please note that there will be assignments before and between sessions. Participants must attend all three sessions.

Kerfuffles, Conflicts and Misunderstandings: Strategies for Engagement

Tuesday, June 2, 8am-12:00pm

This interactive session starts with the premise that the capacity to engage skillfully in challenging conversations is a vital component of leadership. Kerfuffles, conflicts and misunderstandings are every day occurrences. Unresolved, they cultivate resentment and stymy organizational progress- particularly where change is occurring. This session will use concepts from the classic books Crucial Conversations, Crucial Confrontations and Difficult Conversations to discuss, demonstrate and practice high stakes communication skills.  The goal is for participants to gain greater confidence in addressing difficult conversations.

Presented by: Ann Brown, MD, MHS, and Cathie Siders, PhD

Where: The Great Hall of the Trent Semans Center

Who should attend? All are welcome, material will be geared toward School of Medicine faculty.
