Productivity and Efficiency Power Moves for MedSLPs

Productivity is one of those words that can leave a bad taste in your mouth, but why is that?

In most cases, as medical SLPs, it’s because we don’t have much control over how productivity works.

Or do we?

Laura McWilliams M.S. CCC-SLP, BCS-S is back on the Swallow Your Pride Podcast to guide you on how to redefine productivity and efficiency at your job. She’ll walk you through maximizing resources, advocating for productivity improvements, embracing (and creating) automation, and adding value to healthcare institutions through interprofessional collaboration. 

Ready to change the productivity game? Tune in!

P.S. Laura will be joining us during my free four-day workshop, which I’m calling The Effective MedSLP: Productivity Updates and Streamlining Success. You can check it out at (and download your free Productivity Playbook!)
