KEYNOTE SESSIONS
with Conference Facilitator, Alana M. Hill

Change Leadership • Session 1: What Change Sounds Like to Me – Understanding DISC® Styles & Communication

Don’t you wish you had a way to tell how someone would react to change? Everyone handles change differently, some jump eagerly, while others require more information to adopt a decision. There IS a way to predict how your staff or residents might respond to changing conditions by listening to the way they communicate. In this interactive session, you will learn how to determine and adjust to the “sounds of change” of the individuals you lead.


Change Leadership • Session 2: Fostering Team Collaboration for Maximum Innovation

It has been said that the field of Aging Services lacks innovation. The industry leaders who debunk this are providing a great service to their communities and benefit the field as a whole. To be part of the change, you’ll need to create an environment where collaboration is not just expected, but it is also celebrated. In this high-energy, sports-themed session, you’ll learn strategies to foster collaboration to ensure all voices are contributing to the success of your teams.


Change Leadership • Session 3: Embrace the AND: Being Strategic AND Adaptable in Leadership

In order to meet the needs of residents and ensure quality services, you need to be strategic. You need well thought out goals and outcomes that drive decisions and ensure consistent action. But in today’s environment, it is exceedingly important to be adaptable. So, how do you do both when they seem at odds with each other? In this closing session, you will learn the secrets to building a resilient organization which includes being strategic AND adaptable.
