Physician-focused by AAPL,

Combined, they help you uncover the insights, motivations, and the development of a personalized plan, that allows you to provide better care, better leadership – even a better life.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Leadership Assessment. The results were much more insightful and useful than I imagined. I plan to use my results to make some adjustments with the goal of becoming a better leader.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I take a leadership assessment?

Strong technical leadership skills like knowledge of financial decision making, project management and team building are not sufficient by themselves to advance your career. It is important for physician leaders to also be aware of how personal and work-related characteristics, motivations, and thinking style impact your ability to lead, give better care to patients and even improve your everyday life.

Why is the AAPL Leadership Assessment considered the leading tool in professional growth?

The AAPL Leadership Assessment is the only digital assessment that combines the power of the MBTI CPI260 assessment that maps to a detailed developmental pathway backed by proven leadership competencies.

What value does MBTI’s CPI260 bring to this assessment?

MBTI (The Myers-Briggs Company) helps millions of people every year improve their lives. They are the market leader in personality, career, and organizational development assessments supporting both personal and professional development. The CPI260 equips you to gain insight into your interpersonal style, values, and motivation – as well as strengths and blind spots in your leadership approach. The CPI260 is designed to describe you as others would describe you in the workplace.

How has AAPL enhanced the value of the MBTI CPI260?

Starting from the power of the CPI260 raw data, AAPL has applied industry leading expertise, curated from over 45 years of training physicians to be better leaders. Our coaches combined the CPI260 with AAPL leadership competencies to create a highly individualized experience that is personalized based on your specific results. Your personal report will include specific coaching recommendations of exercises to explore, and content you can review to take your development to the next level. All of this is done in real time, at your own pace.

For over 45 years.

The American Association for Physician Leadership has helped physicians develop their leadership skills through education, career development, thought leadership and community building.

The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) changed its name from the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in 2014. We may have changed our name, but we are the same organization that has been serving physician leaders since 1975.
