Dr Emma K Stokes (@ekstokes) is the President of the World Confederation of Physical Therapy. This is the first of two podcasts
1:00m - A fascinating career journey â€“ from student at Trinity College Dublin to President of the World Confederation.
4:00m - â€œYou have to be yourself but you have to understand yourself. Leadership is about bringing people on a journey. Make sure you understand how other people see, or feel about, that journeyâ€
5:00m - The organisation you work in plays a big role too but you can make a difference from wherever you are. Students and early career physiotherapists are as important as the person on the top of the hierarchy
6:30m - The only constant is change (Emmaâ€™s nod to David Bowie but this was recorded before he died). Having a framework for adapting to change
7:50m - Practice change â€“ applying the lessons to a typical health professional practice
10:00m - The role of the IFSPT â€“ International Federation of Sports Physical Therapists â€“ as leaders, advocates. A huge opportunity for leadership. Education, competency definition, congress organisation
12:00m - Physios as entrepreneurs. Social entrepreneurship â€“ physiotherapistsâ€™ opportunities to contribute to society
13:30m - Emmaâ€™s experience on what makes a successful physiotherapy practice
15:00m - End of Part 1 â€“ part two is scheduled for February 12th, 2016
