Wisdom-Share Interview Series with Sondra Abanto, MBA
This is a relaxed interview series where Megan interviews Sondra about the basics of what to expect when you are an employee in a medium to large organization, with emphasis on health care organizations and asides about working as an integrative health care clinician within the system. We talk about what to expect in an ideal situation from parameters to resources.
This is a series of interviews we (Megan and Sondra) recorded in winter and spring 2019 where Sondra covers the following topics related to performance management:
- employee orientation process basics (onboarding) (video published 2.5.2020)
- performance plans (video published 2.12.2020)
- cultivating mentor relationships and career path mapping (video published 2.20.2020)
- team communication
Sondra Abanto, MBA, program analyst, has significant experience in both civilian and federal sectors on program and performance management (metrics) who has also trained as an MSA (acupuncture) student.
