2011 HBA Leadership Conference

The 2011 HBA Leadership Conference, with the theme Crossroads in a Connected World: Navigate, Network, Transform was held November 9-11, 2011 at the Gaylord Hotel and Conference Center near Washington DC.

Allow us to share comments from those who attended the 2011 conference:

  • I got to take the time to develop myself and truly address and assess my needs
  • It was truly inspirational to be in a room with so many women who are innovative and successful
  • I cannot think of another meeting that does a better job enabling women in healthcare to congregate and connect
  • The variety of workshops truly allow you to chart a course for your development based on one’s personal professional development needs
  • I attended the Leadership Conference for the first time in 2010. It was a great conference with so many learning opportunities. I especially enjoyed the evening gatherings to network with other women in healthcare. The workshops provided useful templates to use in my current role to help me to build better win-win solutions.
  • My boss made attending this year's conference a goal for me. I will continue to share my experiences with my colleagues and teammates.

The HBA approaches professional coaching as a partnership to assist you in maximizing your personal and professional potential. The offering of professional coaching services at the HBA Leadership Conference is designed to be a "preview" of possible longer term commitment to your professional development.

Individual coaching is a private, one-on-one session where you will be paired with a carefully selected professional leadership coach. You will have an opportunity to work on your key issues that will be identified in a pre-session questionnaire. This information will be held in strictest confidence and shared only with your assigned coach.
