The Journey From Clinician To Administrator Jay Reeve, PhD Chief Executive Officer Apalachee Center, Inc. Tallahassee, FL
What makes a clinician? How do we relate to our clients? How do we relate to each other? How do we relate to our employers?
The Work? The Clients? The Job Satisfaction? The Self Image? The Salary?
What makes us leave? Burn-Out Flight Into Training Flight Into Administration The Reluctant Administrator
From Symptom focus to System focus Treatment/Management Treatment Planning/Business Planning Family System/System of Care – parallels and differences.

Your client and you You and your Department Your Department and your Agency Your Agency and your Community. Your Community and beyond.
Following your own timeline Job Role or Life Role? On surrendering your professional identity. The Expert Trap: On being mentored when you (think) you already know everything. The Expert Trap II: On leading people who (think) they know more than you do.
After you have made the leap: Your new staff Your new peers Your new boss(es)
Who’s my Boss now? On working with a Board of Directors. But that happened twenty years ago! On dealing with legacies. Can you comment on that? On working with the media. What is that you want? On working with elected officials. Where’s my seat at the table? On working with advocates.
“When the Sage governs, the people are hardly aware that s/he exists. Next best is a leader who is loved. Next, one who is feared. The worst is one who is despised…the sage doesn’t talk, s/he acts. When the work is done, the people say, ‘Amazing: we did it, all by ourselves’”. - Tao Te Ching
