We’ve all heard “the only constant in life is change.” What’s more: today is just a warm-up. With the ever-increasing rate of change in healthcare, leaders must be prepared to be even better at dealing with change tomorrow. This session will allow healthcare leaders to refresh their perspectives with a focus on the positive aspects of change. Furthermore, participants will complete an exercise to differentiate between the things you can control, the things you can influence, and the things you can’t control or influence that will drive workplace productivity and organizational effectiveness.
