Transforming Services and Staff for Jobs and Life in the Community
Bring a team of leaders and staff to learn and discuss how to take your organization through a provider transformation planning process!
This provider transformation webinar series takes organizations through the process of transformation planning. Based on the principles of Employment First, this planning process offers a framework for systems change that is based on the premise that ALL citizens, including individuals with significant disabilities, are capable of full participation in competitive integrated employment and community life. The series starts with preparing and leading change, provides a process and strategies for developing a transformational plan and concludes with a focus on realigning operations and funding. It’s recommended to participate in all three webinars since it takes organizations through the transformation process. However, if an organization is already in a transformation process, they may benefit from focusing on a specific stage in the transformation process.
