Jeff Smith - CEO of Voltage Leadership Consulting

The field of laboratory medicine is evolving and dynamic, with the advent of new technologies, expanded testing options, and growing workflow. Laboratory professionals need to adapt to these inevitable changes and others. Sometimes, overall success in the lab depends on intangibles.

Taking an outside-the-box approach, LabRoots, Inc will host Roche Diagnostics’ LabLeaders Webinar Series in sponsoring an ACTIONSKETCHING + A Renown Leadership Expert = A More Impactful YOU, which will discuss key reasons why coaching is a vital component for a successful laboratory. The unique presentation will synthesize the spoken word into a visual “language” in real time, delivering coaching strategies relevant for any role attendees play in the lab environment.

Renown leadership expert Jeff Smith, CEO of Voltage Leadership Consulting joins designers from the Ink Factory Studio, known worldwide for its graphic recording and ActionSketch videos.

Jeff Smith, a former human resources and operations executive for for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, has been successful in cultivating others’ leadership skills and maximizing their talents. He has served as an executive coach since 2001, and earned his professional coach certification through the International Coaching Federation. Jeff earned a master’s degree in human resource development from George Washington University, graduated from Georgetown University with an executive coaching and leadership certificate, and became a fellow of the advisory board in 2006.

Ink Factory, which creatively collaborates with businesses around the globe, will create visual “experiences” during the webinar to inspire and engage attendees. While actively listening to the presentation and discussion, its designers will blend spoken words into illustrative text and hand-drawn visuals, which allow the content to bloom into a storyboard saturated with information. Graphic recording will add another dimension, thereby fostering a deeper understanding of the presentation.

The free webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on April 6, 2016, at 10 am Pacific Time/1 pm Eastern time and is complimentary for all LabLeaders members.
