Audiology Career Enhancement (ACE) Symposium
Instructional Level: Intermediate
Sponsored in part by Audigy and Phonak
Audiologists don’t work in isolation. We interact constantly – with patients, colleagues, students, administrators, suppliers, media, referral sources, interdisciplinary teams, insurance companies … the list is endless. Despite working in a profession that requires frequent interaction with others, most audiologists have not had the opportunity to participate in educational environments focused on the most fundamental skills necessary to our profession: interacting with others to achieve desired outcomes.
The inaugural Audiology Career Enhancement Symposium will focus on developing or enhancing the critical skills necessary to interact efficiently, effectively, and influentially. This full day, interactive session will offer attendees an opportunity to hear from communications and business experts about how to bolster the critical skills necessary to create a competitive edge, differentiate yourself, and push the boundaries of your capabilities as a colleague, a provider, an entrepreneur, or a leader.
Join us for a great lineup of speakers and topics…

Technical competence alone is insufficient to achieve the highest levels of success.

How does it apply to healthcare? And, how do we use it to improve performance?
This dynamic and interactive workshop teaches the eight habits of peak performers gleaned from research studies in healthcare and other industries. We know that when it comes to our health, small changes can have a major impact if they become a habit. The same is true for key leadership skills. This workshop will focus on how to use these skills to be a more effective clinician leader. Regardless of whether you have formal authority or not and no matter where you are in your career, you'll walk away with an action plan that takes your leadership skills to the next level.
