Communication is the foundation of any great team – whether it’s a signal from a catcher to a pitcher on the baseball field, a cue from one improv actor to another on stage, or a hand-off from a systems analyst to an implementation specialist at a leading data management firm. That’s why we made it a part of our team’s 2020 Kick-Off agenda when we took the Windy City by storm earlier this week. Our first stop was to historic Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. At The Maker’s Mark Barrel Room, we celebrated 2019 achievements, shared 2020 objectives, and even took a few swings in the batting cage. It was an evening of networking, food and fun that allowed the team to relax and bond. Next, we took our seats stage side at The Second City, a world renowned comedy club and school of improvisation. Here, we learned how the communication philosophy of “Yes, and…” can spark creativity, making us more compelling and collaborative. That’s a concept we intend to embrace since it aligns so well with our innovative spirit and commitment to quality. Our 2020 Kick-Off and trip to Chi-Town – with a focus on communication, clarity and ownership of our objectives, and team building – has set us on course for another amazing year of extracting, migrating and retaining vital information for hospitals and health systems nationwide.
