Advanced Leadership and Leadership 3.0

Two trainings where owners see immediate impact are Leadership 3.0 (August 17-19, 2017) and Advanced Leadership

(August 25-26, 2017). We’ve seen hundreds of owners benefit from our leadership trainings by not only attending themselves, but especially with their mid-to-higher level team members.

Advanced Leadership focuses on self-awareness skills that will transform the way managers lead their teams, how to implement change effectively and maintain sustainability for positive, long-lasting results. Leadership 3.0 is the next level to Advanced Leadership and focuses on inner trust, followed by trust with your team and customers. Studies have show a correlation between low trust and a high cost to business and your bottom line. Leadership 3.0 is where you will learn to make business decisions with confidence!

With their newly-trained senior staff, owners can begin to feel confident about handing off tasks that usurp their time and can then focus on other areas of business growth, without their focus being scattered across many different programs.

SyncRx+ Intensive and Synchronization Bootcamp

If your team hasn’t started a medication synchronization program yet, or isn’t seeing the results you hear other pharmacy owners discuss at trade shows, the PDS SyncRx+ IntensiveSynchronization Bootcamp is your catalyst to quick implementation and getting 300+ patients enrolled.

During the two-day SyncRx+ Intensive (September 15-16, 2017), you will receive the training, policies, procedures, and templates to implement a robust and successful synchronization program in your pharmacy. We will cover the best practices in performing the SyncRx+ process and MTM opportunities. You are given everything you need to get this program up and running in your pharmacy.

With each training of SyncRx+ Intensive, course facilitator, Jason Turner, PharmD, has identified what pharmacists and technicians need the most to implement a synchronization program successfully. Incorporating slides, activities, and videos into the training are all key elements, but the lynchpin to achieving the greatest level of success is watching the process live in a pharmacy. At the SyncRx Bootcamp, Jason invites attends to step into his pharmacy to see the Synchronization process and his two-workflow system in action with the goal of each pharmacy learning how to process 50-60% of their prescriptions through synchronization.
