CPhA is very excited to announce Leadership Weekend in beautiful Monterey, CA on November 8-9, 2014. This leadership training program is designed for established and emerging pharmacy leaders throughout California. Earn up to 8.5 contact hours of CE! 

This year, CPhA’s Leadership Weekend will offer two distinct tracks designed to provide a valuable experience to both first-time and returning participants.


Learning to Lead Track

The “Learning to Lead” track will expose first-time attendees to fundamental principles of leadership. The underlying philosophy of this program relates to identifying individuals’ strengths, interests and values, and aligning them with needs and goals.

Sessions include:
  • Intro Session: What Makes a Leader?
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Winston Churchill and Mother Theresa were two distinctly different individuals. Despite their differences however, most would agree that they were both were very effective leaders. Is it possible that these two incredibly different individuals, and all other leaders for that matter, share a common set of core elements that define “true” leadership? During this session, participants will explore whether such core elements exist, and determine what it really takes to be a leader.


    Learning Objectives: By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

    1. List 3-5 core elements of leadership

    2. Distinguish “leadership” from “management”

    3. Identify common leadership traps (leading by doing and leading by knowing), and discuss their various payoffs and costs

    4. Discuss the role of “vision” in leadership, and how it can be expanded through the use of paradigms

    5. Describe the payoffs and costs of being a “victim” (vs. a “player”)

    6. Discuss the benefits of a “whole person approach” to leadership


  • Coaching Practicum
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    During this 1.5-hour practicum, members of the “Learning to Lead” track will be coached by members of the “Working to Lead” track around a personal CPhA-related goal.

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this session, participants will be able to describe how a coaching approach can be used to help:

    1. Validate that an individual’s goals are aligned with their values, interests and strengths

    2. Prioritize competing goals and demands

    3. Reframe challenges to identify solutions and potential new opportunities

    4. Increase accountability and action

    5. Empower others


  • Strengths & Flow
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Great leaders seem to have a magical ability to get more from their teams than is humanly possible. Many leaders believe the key to such performance lies in charismatic inspiration, or draconian punishment/reward systems. While those strategies may work for a time, they alone can never produce sustained “superhuman” performance. This session will illustrate the importance of identifying peoples’ strengths and aligning them with appropriate tasks matched in both type and complexity.

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

    1. Describe the impact that (mis)matching tasks and strengths can have on individuals and groups

    2. Discuss the idea of “flow” & its application to selecting pursuits, and delegating tasks

    3. Identify their top strengths and describe strategies for leveraging their strengths and addressing their weaknesses

    4. List complementary strengths required for high-performing teams


  • Core Values & Priorities
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    The goal of every human should be to live a life that is fulfilled. With ever increasing demands on our time however, the real question we must confront is not, “How full can I make my life?” but rather, “With what do I want my life to be filled?” This program will provide attendees with insight into their personal core values. Furthermore, it will illustrate how to align these values so that their limited time and energy are put toward activities that meet internal and external needs in a manner that provides meaning and purpose.

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

    1. List the activities which consume a majority of their time

    2. Identify their personal core values

    3. Describe the degree to which each of their activities enable the expression of their values

    4. Apply their core values to facilitate their: a) Identification of internal and external needs, and; b) Selection of activities with which to fill their life


  • Interest and Passion: A Leader’s Ultimate Energy Source
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Many people pursue leadership because they like the idea of being a leader. Once they become a leader however, they soon realize that there is a big difference between the idea of being a leader and performing the actual work of a leader. Leadership can be fraught with frustrations and disappointments. Many people will question and disagree with a leader’s vision. Furthermore, even those who agree with it may offer to help and never follow through. Challenges such as these can suck the life force out of a leader, sapping their will and energy. This program will help participants identify their life’s interests and passion(s) and leverage them as a source of limitless energy to drive their leadership pursuits.

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this session, participants will be able to describe how a coaching approach can be used to help:

    1. Compare and contrast common ideas about being a leader vs. the actual work of leadership

    2. Identify leadership challenges that have the potential to be demotivating

    3. Discuss the human tendency to collapse subjective interpretations onto objective facts, and describe the effect this tendency can have on motivation

    4. Discuss a leader devoid of self-motivation and the associated potential consequences

    5. Derive and discover one’s passion as a source of internal motivation to sustain leadership through challenging times.

Working to Lead Track

The “Working to Lead” track is for individuals who have attended a prior CPhA leadership program and feel they possess a strong grasp of the fundamentals.  This program builds on attendees’ knowledge of the fundamentals, and facilitates their work to apply those concepts in their role as a leader and coach. 

Sessions include:
  • Intro Session: What Makes a Leader?

  • Coaching in Leadership Workshop
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    For many Americans, the idea of a great leader sparks the image of a self-made successful industrialist like Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, or John D. Rockefeller. These individuals were awe inspiring in their ability to envision alternate futures and seemingly bend reality to their personal will. While their “command and control” brand of leadership may have worked in the 19th century, the magnitude of increasing complexity and change in the 21st century is demanding a different type of leadership; one built not on telling others what they need to do, but on coaching others to develop and leverage their strengths, interests and values to identify their own opportunities and solutions. This workshop will provide attendees with an introduction to a “leading by coaching” approach and provide ample opportunity to observe this approach and practice it on others.

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

    1. Compare and contrast “leading by knowing” with “leading by coaching”

    2. Explain the “from education to empowerment” approach

    3. Facilitate the co-creation process: establishing a relationship, contracting, goal setting/reflecting on learning, and concluding

    4. Describe the roles and relative significance of expectation management and improvisation in coaching

Both tracks serve as a natural lead-in for individuals interested in the 2015 cohort of CPhA’s Leader Development Institute – a year-long program designed to provide participants with an in-depth experience of "BEING a leader" (vs. only "learning" and "working" to lead).
