    • Lesson Filling Your Lab’s Operational Gaps

  • During this presentation, the speaker will define "laboratory quality", and discuss its different aspects. The speaker will also share some tools for managers to keep track of quality indicators and provide a simple framework for driving performance improvement initiatives in the laboratory. This session will further discuss the different tools and ideas that lab managers can use to continuously improve their lab's performance.
  • This session will discuss the varying risk perceptions possessed by different people, how a manager can recognize these different risk perceptions, and how managers can tailor their leadership approach to make sure that everyone in the lab understands what needs to be done in order to maintain a safe working environment.
  • In this session, we will discuss the lab of the future as a facility that delivers client-focused outcomes faster. Maintaining a successful environment requires data and an uncompromising focus on analytics and optimal asset management. Lab managers can increase the use of informatics to enhance productivity by thinking of analytics like a digital thread running through every sample, instrument, and laboratory in the workflow.
  • Positive leaders serve as role models for staff to generate lab culture that builds professional relationships, trust, and confidence. Positive leadership can drive benefits in improved safety and quality compliance, greater productivity, and significant growth of the lab. This session will share tips and examples of actions lab managers can take to be more positive leaders and to generate a more positive culture for their lab.
  • Good leadership development results in increased employee engagement, job satisfaction and retention, which leads to improved lab operations, successful succession planning, realization of strategic goals, and overall greater lab success. This presentation will discuss the reasons why developing new lab leaders is so important, the challenges associated with this task, and provide tips, strategies, and actions that will grow your lab’s talent and develop the next generation of lab leaders.
  • Laboratory leaders have expectations to provide the highest quality service and laboratory results while still maintaining a reasonable financial output. This becomes a delicate balancing act that is not always intuitive, nor is it include in our laboratory leadership training. There are key strategies which will help you to realize the balance. The four strategies reviewed during this presentation will include incorporating quality metrics with cost savings outcomes, standardization, lean processes, and laboratory’s partnership with other health systems services.
  • Successful labs identify and take control of the fundamentals of lab operations. These labs have a documented, fit for purpose strategy to ensure the quality of their scientific product that balances costs and risks as necessary—asset management. Your asset management program should be designed to build operational clarity. This speaker will give real-world examples of how asset management strategy can have a positive effect on operations, and will also offer tips and pointers designed for new and experienced lab managers.
  • A new promotion into a management position is exciting, but for some it can also be intimidating—especially if you unexpectedly found yourself there. This presentation will discuss where “new to management” managers can locate relevant resources, create employee training courses tailored to multiple learning styles, and how to fill open positions and quickly transfer knowledge to incoming staff during turnover.
  • One thing is for sure—we will experience turbulent times in the future and we need to be better equipped to THRIVE from change, not just manage it. In this keynote, certified speaking professional Jeff Tobe gives audiences the tools they need to discuss, work through and succeed with changes in their teams. He presents the THREE questions you must ask your team when it comes to change and how to handle the ‘loss’ that is inevitable for everyone. Jeff’s promise is to help you crack the code of change.

What strategies can be utilized to help keep these talented young people in STEM, especially when they are facing challenges? This session will include helpful insight to lab managers who wish to recognize and encourage young talent, and will offer strategies for lab managers to help interested students and young people succeed in STEM-related fields.
