AM = Removing Anxiety
We may have a new slogan, thanks to Steve Course, Facility Manager, Mid-Atlantic Retina. Mr. Course was a guest on ALN Th@3 pm ET in an eye-opening exposure on how to address neurodivergence in asset management. Two 2-minute highlights from Mr. Course’s discussion recalibrate asset management from a “boots on the ground” leadership perspective. Mr. Course says it very simply – asset management is about removing anxiety from people. Creating assurance and reducing risks with asset management can do that.
