Had the pleasure of spending the evening with these 3 colleagues exchanging ideas about where change comes from, how to promote change and what are the barriers. Lots of good ideas and I'll be blogging more after we each do our presentations tomorrow.
My sense is I'll come at it a little differently but I want to hear their presentation first….stay tuned!

This session will present the science of change technology and organizational learning as applied to a private practice physical therapy organization. Practical examples will be provided of creating positive feedback systems to fuel growth and ingenuity for more traditional practices, niche practices and those looking to diversify. The focus will move between issues as they apply to individual staff and the larger group as a whole, to include its role in the community. Evidence for practices used to address change will be presented. Examples from Fortune 50 (fifty) companies will be cited as well as case reports from small private practices. The session will conclude with how to establish ongoing practices of inquiry both personally and as an organization.
