Each month, look forward to an overview of what’s new, what you’ve missed, how you can help, and coming attractions. We hope you enjoy it – and as always, appreciate your input!

All the best,

The Synova team

What’s new with the PLF?

Trust is a defining factor in all relationships including successful professional connections. In November, we will, together, discover how to create a trusting culture where staff and patients are engaged, build on or develop winning team strategies, and strengthen our leadership approach.

Here is what you might have missed:

The Agenda for the 2019 Perinatal Leadership Forum has been released – there are over 15 track presentations included!

6 Scholarships will be announced at the end of the week! This year, all applicants that do not receive the scholarship will be eligible for discounted tuition. It always pays to apply! Good luck!

There is still space available to join a Pre-conference. Don’t know what they are? Click here!

*Next month: Headshots, Focus Groups, Scholarship winners and more!

What’s new with the NICU Leadership Forum?

The Planning Committee has met and are extremely excited about this year’s meeting! After a careful review of last year’s evaluations, the theme for the 23rd NICU Leadership Forum will be Engaging & Empowering Staff: Creating a Culture of Excellence. You spoke – they listened!

Employee engagement strategies are vital and have been proven to reduce staff turnover, and improve productivity, efficiency and retention. Do you have ideas and successes that you can share? Submit an Abstract today for April’s program!

Plan to join us for strategies and solutions from April 28 – May 2, 2019 when we will be headed back to the Wigwam in beautiful Phoenix, AZ!

*Next month: Meet a national NICU educator group – who met and prioritized a national, shared project at last year’s NLF!

What did I miss?

The first Synova Spotlight on Leadership was launched last week – and we introduced you to Ashley Matson! Find out next month who will be featured next! If YOU are interested in being spotlighted – or know someone who should be recognized – let Chrissy know!

Have you registered for the webinar on 9/13 entitled “’Me’ to ‘We’: Our Journey to Accountability & Leadership” by Jaylee Hilliard? There is still time to join the live program – but remember that the leadership webinars are always recorded and archived.

We had an overwhelming and EXCITING response to the new Synova Emerging Leader Fellowship! Winners will be announced this week!
