Are you ready to lead? Leadership can be defined as the capacity to inspire and/or influence followers to think, act, or support. Define a vision, align people with the vision, and inspire them to make it happen despite the obstacles. Leadership differs from management, which involves more planning, budgeting, organizing, staffing, controlling and problem solving. Skills and competencies in both leadership and management are essential for a well-balanced approach toward career growth and professional development.
AHIMA is committed to developing leadership in the health information management (HIM) industry, the profession, and the Association. While these three areas of HIM leadership are distinct, there are common skills and competencies that can be identified, developed, and recognized, and which translate across the areas of leadership. For example, an HIM industry leader can be a leader in the Association and vice versa.
AHIMA demonstrates a commitment to developing leadership by providing many opportunities for professional growth and skill development.
