How does a traditional organization move towards person-centered supports? How do caregivers maintain their sense of purpose, joy, and commitment in times of growing complexity and changing expectations? A day-long workshop focused on specific strategies for transforming system-centered organizations to person- and family-centered organizations while never losing track of joy. Target audience: managers and supervisors.
At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have developed knowledge in the following areas:
A basic understanding of the contrast between traditional and person-centered supports;
Tools for establishing an agency vision steeped in detail;
Tools for localizing decision-making;
Tools for staying focused as an organization and keeping track of the importance of joy
The following is a suggested agenda only. Starting and ending times may vary. Regular question and answer breaks are built into the day.
