Lead 3.0: Group 7: Breaking Down the notion of "Otherness" to Combat #ImposterSyndrome and #Burnout

What a fantastic group of scholars!

#doctorsarehumanstoo #diversityandinclusion Have you ever felt like you...ImageImage
The interrelatedness of #impostersyndrome, #burnout, and #otherness.

It affects many physicians. 30-40% among family medicine and IM residents. >50% of physicians have burnout.

Threat to diversity: Imposter feelings are strong predictors of burnout.

How do we combat #impostersyndrome and #otherness and #burnout.

The only way to stop feeling like an impostor is to stop thinking like an impostor.

#LEADatStanfordMed #StanfordMedDEI Image
Break the silence. It can be shameful to feel like a fraud.
Right the rules. Recognize that you have just as much right as the others to have an off-day.
Develop a new Script. "I will learn from them" vs "I'm not smart."

#doctorsarehumanstoo #preventburnout #whatdoctorslooklike ImageImage
Separate feelings from facts. It's ok to feel inadequate. This does NOT mean that you are inadequate.

Recognize when you should feel fraudulent.

"If no one else in the room looks like you, recognize that it might be a normal response to feel like you don't fit in." #StanfordMedDEI #LEADatStan...
Develop a new response to failure.
Fake it 'til you make it. While "you're winging it" is a proof of ineptness. Don't wait until you feel confident to start putting yourself out there.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy.

Activating event. Identify events that are upsetting.
Beliefs. Core beliefs attached to the event.
Consequences. negative Feeling
Dispute beliefs. Challenge core belief.
Effective new beliefs. Interrupt cycle with new, more positive reactions. #StanfordMedDEI #LEADatStan...
Our Group 7 scholars are crushing it! Discussion about Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy reminds me of the key elements of #mindfulness and #selfcompassion.

From a leader/group level, how can you address #impostersyndrome and #otherness to prevent #burnout?
1. establish rapport (#CONNECTION)
2. level the playing field (#EQUITY)
3. Share your stories (#VULNERABILITY)

#LEADatStanfordMed #StanfordMedDEI
#whatdoctorslooklike Image
By sharing #vulnerability, we lead to de-stigmatize #impostersyndrome and feelings of #otherness.

Celebrate purpose and belonging
Embrace diversity of thoughts and perspectives.
Celebrate TRAITS rather than achievements.

#Belonging #LEADatStanfordMed Image
Leadership is a muscle, not a title.
Encourage team members to practice steps to overcome #impostersyndrome.

#LEADatStanfordMed #StanfordMedDEI
Systems-level solutions to overcome #impostersyndrome and #otherness include:
1. Mentorship and coaching
2. Regular feedback for all members
3. Environmental and psychological support.

#LEADatStanfordMed #StanfordMedDEI Image
Letters of #gratitude from our patients remind us of our contribution.

On #impostersyndrome and #otherness:
What solutions resonated with you?
What strategies have you tried in the past and what might you apply to your daily practice?
What other strategies have we not discussed?
More lessons learned:
As program directors, share our own struggles without burdening learners. At the right dose at the right time, it'll open the conversation for others to feel heard and seen.

Development of team allows us to support each other. Immediate feedback is key.
Self-doubt in small doses can be helpful to push towards #growthmindset.

Harness your #impostersyndrome. We all have it. If you can get the right dose of it, it can harness the #growthmindset.--Dr. Ciara Harraher, Faculty in Neurosurgery

Jumping from the #LEADatStanfordMed Diversity and Inclusion Forum to the @StanfordWellMD Physician #Wellness Forum... Today, we'll be doing a journal club!

#doctorsarehumanstoo #whatdoctorslooklike
#StanfordMedDEI Image
On the first paper:
820 physicians and 57 leaders took the survey
As an aside, there are more men than women in #leadership positions in this study.

Burnout score, professional fulfillment score, self valuation score among leaders, and their wellness scores.

#HeForShe ImageImage
Role model effect. No associations between leaders' scores of burnout, professional fulfillment and self-valuation with the same outcomes for those who they supervised.

Sleep impairment, however, shows an association. Image

We're so excited to welcome Dr. @Kanapicki at the @StanfordWellMD as she shares some life hacks and productivity tools: "1,440 minutes: Time Management tools for the busy physician"

#efficiencyofpractice #cultureofwellness
What true successful managers value is time. We can never get back TIME.

Where are your minutes going? YOu can't trust your head when it comes to time.
Write down where is your time going.

If you had 2 more hours a day, how would you want to use it? <--GOAL
We get about 63.5 interruptions a day.
It takes ~20 minutes to get back to your task at hand.


Here's how.

Also, find out how much time you use on your phone, and know where all your minutes are going.
--These could signal interruptions

Joining our @CORD_EM Mini-Fellowship on Wellness Leadership is Dr. Jennifer @Kanapicki, @StanfordEMED APD, and @aaeminfo BOD president giving a talk on "1440 minutes: Time Management Tools for the Busy Physicians"

#doctorsarehumanstoo #efficiencyinpractice #HeForShe ImageImage
Understanding time management allows us to focus on ourselves and OUR time.

When execs are asked about what they value the most? the answer is TIME.

Check out some tips from Dr. @Kanapicki:…
1. Do an inventory of your time in a day
2. If you have 2 more hours in a day. What would you do with it? (this serves as a goal on what you can do better)

- family, more time with friends, time to be outside, time to pick up a new hobby, etc.

Invest 1440 minutes well. Image

#MedStudentTwitter #MedED #classof2021
Lots of important stakeholders represented in the Coalition for Physician Accountability.

Next month: watch out for the report on pathways for graduating medical students (#class2020) and their journey to residency.

"We anticipate stakeholders will commit to policies that prioritize these guiding principles yet recognize the necessity for innovation and flexibility in this new #COVID19 environment"
