In today’s shifting workforce, the role of leaders has changed dramatically. Employee engagement, satisfaction, and retention are top priority, along with the consistent strain from regulatory pressures, board and stakeholder demands, and needing to do more with less.

By specifically recognizing the ways that their work is directly tied to a human being, Allison generates a deeper connection to the patient experience for each participant. They learn that their expertise, attentiveness, and devotion improve the health and success of patients while boosting their own sense of well-being and directly affecting the bottom line.
