Celebrating Partnership

Yesterday we celebrated the designation of two of our folks as members of the new class of Boston Associates of The Partnership, Inc. They are Earl Stephen, Practice Administrator in our Labor and Delivery section, and Wayne Rhymer, Clinical Lab Control Manager in our Pathology Department. Beyond demonstrating great managerial expertise and potential at BIDMC, these two gentlemen are deeply involved in community activities -- Earl with coaching and directing a youth basketball league, and Wayne with mentoring a young boys group and helping the Children's Choir at his church.

This is a year-long leadership development program for professionals of color. Wayne and Earl have been placed in small groups called "pods", with about eight people per group. The Associates program has about 70 people from organizations all around Boston. They go through workshops both in pods and also in the larger group. Here is a sampling of the workshops:
  • Leadership Assessment Experience
  • The Efficacy Experience
  • Coaching Sessions
  • Your Personal Brand: Tools for Optimizing Strengths and Attributes
  • Masterful Mentoring - Best Practices for Being Mentored
  • Influence Skills and Strategies
  • Strengthening Personal and Professional Connections
  • The "Partnership" Workshop - Understanding Partnerships & Organizational Life
  • Strategic Development Forum
  • Leadership Presence
