Becoming a Person-Centered Organization

View Session
Overview

In the culture change movement, we often only focus on our personal transformation. We have been slower to transform our practices, systems and operations. In order to advance person-centered care and services, we must identify then eliminate, or at least minimize, our challenges. This will allow us to see more clearly.  Once we have a clear vision, we can intentionally focus our attention and energy on the journey. We must adapt and adopt new and different perspectives as we look for the next right answer to becoming more person-centered. Achieving 2020 vision involves an intentional plan for transformation which includes ongoing evaluation, adaptation, and change. Our journey calls for us to stay in the moment, notice what we see, and not get distracted by the dark clouds that blind us.  By the end of the session, together, we will be prepared to leave singing “I Can See Clearly Now!”

From Tired to Inspired

View Session
Overview

Denise Boudreau-Scott reminds us that we all come into the aging services field wanting to make a difference in the lives of others, but after a few years we find ourselves feeling more tired than inspired! In this unique and powerful presentation, you’ll discover the astonishing underlying cause of the fatigue that so often turns the most idealistic and well-intentioned staff into part of the problem. You’ll find out how doing the right thing, in every sense of the word, will fill your community, build your reputation and have the hearts of your staff brimming with the love and enthusiasm that led them into aging services in the first place. You’ll take an exhilarating round trip from tired to inspired and return to your workplace with new ideas and concepts, and a simple but amazingly effective system to raise and sustain everyone’s energy.

Making the Future Happen: 2020 and Beyond

Overview

Pioneers have been saying it for a long time, and now, in light of the events of the past six months, it has become clearer than ever that CHANGE needs to happen!  The question — what will that change look like? What is the future for Elders and for those of us who work in the field of aging care and services?

Join us for a lively and thought-provoking discussion led by Pioneer Network President & CEO Penny Cook in which she, along with thought leaders in our field: Dr. Al Power, Dr. David Gifford, Rose Marie Fagan and Deke Cateau, will share their vision and challenge us all to not only envision the future, but to start creating it.

You will leave this session ready to define your personal action plan for being a part of the change we wish to see in the world.
