SOLD OUT! Flipping Ordinary Opportunities into Extraordinary Experiences: Exploring Possibilities in Communication (E1)

Experiential Workshop - 11:00AM to 12:15PM October 7, 2017 - Pender South

What role can empowerment play within interprofessional healthcare teams, or engagement within teaching teams? In this experiential workshop we will weave stories from our own research and experience in the fields of systems theory, leadership, and social construction to share in dialogue and explore possibilities within complex human systems.

Research in the fields of systems theory and leadership have revealed that a significant leverage point for organizational change lies in individual paradigm shifts and the ensuing ripple effect.   Once such shift involves reframing the notion of buy-in into ownership when engaging team members.  From our own research and personal experience, we believe these shifts can be sparked by conversations about possibility.  Through shared dialogue, seeds of thought can be planted, and their percolating power should not be underestimated.  In this experiential workshop we will engage audience members in modeling shared dialogue about possibilities within complex human systems.  Together we will explore possibilities such as the tipping point for flipping ordinary interactions into extraordinary experiences, what role empowerment can play within interprofessional healthcare teams, or engagement within teaching teams.  By placing intention within our approaches to communication, we can create space to be surprised by what we hear, invite and appreciate the voices of others, and together own our opportunity for positive impact on our shared extraordinary experiences.
