How to Be Here Now  - Winter 18’ Leadership Conference Recap

Posted by Peggy Fredrickson on Feb 12, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Why we do what we do

PhysAssist Scribes believes in the importance of investing in each employee. We strive to offer leadership growth in both their professional and personal lives. Over the years, it has become clear that our employees lead happier lives if they feel engaged, a sense of project ownership, and fulfilled in their careers. This year’s conference theme is Be Here Now , meaning we commit to approaching each moment fully focused and fully connected. As one of five of our commitment statements, we found it vital to teach the attendees how to be fully engaged in the moment, not just for their career development but also for their personal fulfillment. With the commitment to drive change, another one of our commitment statements, in mind we work to drive change in our employee's careers and personal development by offering the tools that will groom them to be experts in their field. By providing everything from industry news on our social channels, an in-house leadership library, and our bi-annual leadership conference, we utilize every opportunity to grow our employee’s industry knowledge bank, develop thought leadership, and garner a deeper understanding of career fulfillment.

According to Forbes, among the best qualities that make a leader great are effective communication skills, which can help instill trust and higher morale, as well as approach and intuition, which can lead to better adaptability to all of the things work can throw at us.
