Communication with Mutual Understanding

Masters Class 6

What if we could learn ways to improve our communication? How can we expand our listening skills? How is this related to Time / Life Management Using Rhythm (Webinar #4), Reciprocity of Roles and Relationships (Webinar #5), and the rest of The 8 PRACTICEs?

The goal is quality and timeliness of communication. Not everything is urgent. Quality requires a passion for performance improvement, positive attitude resilience, inspiration, complex problem solving through simplicity, and mental, emotional and physical energy.

This class will help you learn some simple strategies to improve your communication skills as a person and a surgeon. We will build on the strategies of Energy Leadership™, 8 PRACTICEs, AIM SMART or I AM SMART Goal Setting, and personal accountability.
