This one-hour class from the 2016 Educational Webinar Series takes into account the time demands on Surgeons.
Let us expand upon what we learned in Masters Class #4 regarding Time / Life Management Using Rhythm. Let us aim for quality over quantity. Quality requires a positive attitude, focus, connection, and effort. This class will allow you to create a rhythm to improve each of your relationships and roles as a surgeon. We will build on the strategies of Energy Leadership™, 8 PRACTICEs, AIM SMART or I AM SMART Goal Setting, and personal accountability.
