The recipe for success for tomorrow’s GI practice will include a team-based approach to care, cutting-edge technologies for its business operations, patient care and data analytics, and innovative solutions for addressing the staffing shortage. In addition to navigating an everchanging landscape that includes AI, virtual health care, practice consolidation and regulatory changes, the leaders of those GI practices will also need to change how they lead and manage people.

ASGE’s GI Outlook (GO) 2022 Practice Management & Leadership Conference has been designed to meet these specific and strategic needs of the GI specialty. This year, the Conference will feature remarks from Senator Bill Cassidy, MD, as well as Carolyn Carpenter, President of the National Capital Region of John Hopkins Medicine and Allison Linney, President and Founder of Allison Partners.

New! GO In-depth
This year, ASGE has eliminated pre-conference workshops and incorporated in-depth sessions for all GO registrants. Led by an expert on integrating human performance theory and business strategy, this year’s in-depth sessions will provide the skills that are needed for you to meet your business goals while satisfying employee needs and creating high-functioning healthcare teams that feel valued. This year’s focus includes:

The Art of Being a Great Boss
At the foundation of great leadership is effective management - the ability to help employees reach their potential and contribute to your mission. This session examines effective practices for managing and supervising employees, including tools for setting expectations, managing conflict, inviting participation, providing feedback, and making decisions.

Choosing Balance and Leadership
In life and in leadership, it’s the choices one makes about what to do-and what not to do-that define the path. This session will explore the perceived dichotomy between balance and leadership and discover how choices that contribute to balance can lead to more effective leadership.
