    In the face of rising operating costs and other rapidly evolving challenges, purpose-driven leadership and effective strategic planning are increasingly crucial for medical practice leaders.

Discover how purpose-driven leadership can inspire teams, foster innovation and create a lasting impact in your medical practice or healthcare organization. Attendees will receive practical approaches and knowledge to address the ongoing challenges of rising costs, a tight labor market and more.

    This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:

    • Point out the significance of purpose-driven leadership in medical practice settings and its impact on employee engagement, patient satisfaction and overall organizational performance
    • Outline different strategic planning frameworks and techniques applicable to medical practice leadership for aligning strategic initiatives to the organization's purpose and goals
