Nancy Brahm, Julie C. Kissack, Susan M. Grace, Lisa M. Lundquist


Purpose: Two-fold: [1] To evaluate available literature describing leadership management techniques and how these techniques can be used for pharmacy faculty transitioning into new academic roles and [2] To evaluate a leadership program and how it can be applied to the individual to enhance leadership skills. Methods: Literature related to pharmacist development was evaluated and a book review with a corresponding workbook was completed. Faculty members from three colleges of pharmacy participated in a focus group session. Response confidentially was maintained. This project was approved by a university institutional review board. Results: All study group members (4) participated in the focus group. Two overarching themes were unanimously identified regarding implementation of this process. The first theme was time commitment. The second was trust. These were considered essential to the team-building process. As a secondary outcome, the dynamic process of team building was acknowledged. All focus group members were pleased with the use of the book and workbook as learning tools. Conclusions: Participants expressed satisfaction with the materials used, information covered, and learning experience. They suggested additional strategies for implementation into a variety of settings, offered suggestions for future studies, and requested additional collaboration in this area.
