Webinar Description
Leadership is the single determining factor of whether an organization can make the leap from an institutional model of care to a person-centered model. This transformation begins with and depends upon the formal leaders' ability and willingness to transform themselves first, then to change the context of their communities so that others may embrace their own growth and transformation. This webinar will provide attendees with an opportunity to address their own leadership challenges with two nationally known facilitators in person-centered leadership. What is that leadership challenge that is driving you crazy? After you register, send your greatest leadership challenge to and it will be addressed during the webinar.
Learning Objectives
  1. Identify two challenges of leading a person-centered care journey.
  2. Discuss ways that leaders shift their practices to more effectively facilitate the growth of person-centered care.
  3. Name one new leadership practice or skill that the attendee will personally implement.
