I am very enthusiastic about a leadership develop program we recently implemented. As an outgrowth of our most recent Employee Engagement Survey, each member of our leadership team is going through a 360° assessment process where they receive feedback from their team members, peers, manager, and other colleagues. This feedback will help them understand how others perceive their leadership abilities, and help them in their development as team leaders. As a part of the process, all managers will receive an individual coaching session with a Leadership Coach from The Impact Group. Ultimately, each manager, including me, will come away with 2 or 3 actionable tasks to facilitate their growth in becoming highly effective team leaders. For those of you participating in the survey process, thank you very much for your feedback, your participation will ultimately make us a better organization.
With deep respect and appreciation,

2020 Kickoff Meeting Recap & Service Awards
Dave Stewart, VP of Sales & Marketing
Katie Harden, VP of Operations
Each year, the Shared Imaging Sales, Operations & Leadership teams from our Streamwood office meet for a Kickoff Meeting to reflect on the prior year, recognize achievements, and focus on continuous improvements & priorities for the upcoming year. Our 2020 meeting was held in Las Vegas on Feb 26th and 27th. Our theme this year was ‘Excellence – We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit.’ Our agenda for the meeting was structured to build upon our 2019 performance, further ingrain Excellence into our culture, and energize our Sales and Leadership teams!
Our Sales team kicked off the first day with a packed training agenda that included various topics. They planned for the Prospect Connect campaign, which is a customer outreach & lead generation program, learned the new Seismic platform, which will drive effectiveness with our marketing tools, built-out the key differentiators that set us apart from our competitors, and trained on mobile mammography.
In the adjacent room, the Management team’s first day agenda was completely focused on Leadership development and included the introduction to our Shared Imaging Leadership Assessment Survey Process. You should have received Larry’s announcement of this tool. This is a 360 review process to receive feedback from our leaders’ team members, peers, manager, and other colleagues. This feedback will help us understand how others perceive their leadership abilities, and help in the development as team leaders.
We closed day one with a team building event and went on a Wild Goose Chase (AKA a scavenger hunt) along the Vegas Strip. It was very entertaining and Holly D’Angelo’s team crushed the competition.
On Day 2, Larry and Sam led the team through the 2019 recap, which was really fun to relive since we had a stellar year filled with lots of accomplishments! They then took the team through our 2020 outlook including key priorities the leadership team must focus on and impress upon our staff as we continue down our path of Excellence. We also were updated on several other topics including cyber security, marketing initiatives, and updates on the Six Employee Engagement initiatives introduced at the town hall meeting in Q3 of 2019. We ended our two days together with our annual recognition dinner. This is always a fun night where we take the time to recognize a number of associates who had a big impact on Shared Imaging and our customers in 2019. Please join us in congratulating the following people for their outstanding contributions:
