Title:  Panel Presentation- Growing a Healthy PI Practice Through Leadership


“If you build it, they will come,” is only applicable to corn fields in Iowa. Successfully attracting business and growing your practice takes more than hope and being good at your craft. Your connection to your clients and staff alike is what wins the day and keeps the phone ringing. This seasoned panel has “been there and done that” in all aspects of entrepreneurship, leadership, and coaching—and will share how to leverage critical tools at your fingertips to maintain and buoy success.

Attendees will learn:

  1. A practical definition of leadership—and how to apply it.
  2. The top three “must-haves” of a healthy PI practice.
  3. How to pivot if you realize you’re off-track.
