Tuesday, September 1st (Session GS1) - Becoming a Person-Centered Organization

Session GS1

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!”

1. Understand the role that transforming practices, systems and operations have in advancing the culture change movement.
2. Define the need to adapt new and different perspectives in order to become more person-centered.
3. Identify at least one way in which ongoing evaluation, adaptation and/or change can help you see the path to culture change more clearly.
