SOHL Programs: Quarterly Update

August 12, 2021: CEO Rounds with Jonathan Reynolds, CEO, Titus Talent Strategies – Virtual Program  

On the afternoon of August 12th, over 20 aspiring and senior healthcare leaders joined the virtual Zoom session to led by Jonathan Reynolds, CEO, Titus Talent Strategies. As CEO of Titus Talent Strategies, Jonathan is a visionary, catalyst, and game-changer. He is energized by inspiring company leaders and equipping them with unique approaches to better understand their people, foster organizational alignment, and create optimal performance among their team members. During his presentation, Jonathan shared strategies on how to help your employees identify where they are today and where they can see themselves as part of the company’s growth in three years’ time. Additionally, he discussed how tying an employee’s performance to a quantifiable performance objective (i.e., scoreboard) provides transparency, visibility, and motivation for growth.

We would like to give a huge thank you to our speaker, Jonathan Reynolds, our facilitator, Lydia Napa, and thank you to all the attendees. The event was a success and the attendees were left with more knowledge and tools on how to retain committed employees, increase engagement in an in-person or remote work environment, and identify top performers for succession planning.
