Transform Your Work Relationships Right Now! A Leadership Practice

For all leaders, complexity and stress tend to impede creativity and resilience in tackling day-to-day problems. In particular, relational issues such as conflict, resistance, and non-collaborative behaviors are very common and can be especially hard to address in the moment.

This workshop, led by Neil Baker, MD, offers evidence-informed strategies to tap into your highest skills and values when you most need them — right now! Case situations will be used to practice thinking through how to transform work relationships as you work toward results. While not easy, this practice enables more clarity, confidence, and agility in the moment.

Designed primarily for physician, administrative, nursing, and quality leaders, but open to all health care professionals. Learn more about Dr. Baker.

Transforming Lives: The Art of Person-Centered Care

Allison Massari will kick off the conference by taking us on a journey, offering tools to rise above any obstacle, and find peace, purpose, and happiness despite turbulent times. As the survivor of two life-threatening car accidents, Massari shares her story of absolute loss, to forgiveness and understanding. She illuminates how compassionate, patient-centered care can build an expansive, life-changing foundation for healing, for both patient and provider.

With sensitivity and compassion born from her experiences, Massari shines light on the provider’s immense value to a patient who is suffering, reinvigorating employees and helping heal health care burnout in the workplace. As an advocate for both patient and health care provider, Massari’s powerful understanding of the essential nature of patient-centered care fortifies audience members, offering applicable tools for managing change, adversity, and the everyday challenges of being human.
