When I then changed it to I choose to attend the session I felt fully engaged and full of power.

SDI Qual RGBToday's healthcare system is fraught with change: mergers, downsizing and reorganizations create workplace environments that are challenging, uncertain and stressful. It's not surprising that organizations, during times of significant change, report an increase in formal complaints, staff turnover, absenteeism, and interpersonal conflicts.
