He added, “ The team at J3P are taking a unique, practical approach.  They combine training on leadership knowledge with “skills” built on a foundation of self-awareness.  Applying their deep strategic and operational experience, they integrate this into the real, day-to-day work, and make it personal. This approach is in line with my research, and my experience.  I look forward to working with them to drive real change for organizations and, especially, to improve the work and life experience for individual physicians.”
