    One of the most important and often most difficult parts of a manager’s job is to be able to effectively communicate with the physicians and employees with whom they work. The manager serves physicians that are performing many roles in our organizations - doctor, owner, manager, and employee. This session will teach the best ways to prepare reports, hold formal meetings and have discussions in a variety of settings. Employees present a different set of challenges and the program discusses how to deal with problem employees and difficult situations such as conflicts and termination.
