Go from reactivity to proactivity.

Within the healthcare sector it can feel like you are continuously under resourced and that the next challenge of this infinite journey of delivering quality care, responding to crisis, and transforming the system is right around the corner. As leaders, if you don’t get ahead of the structure, strategy, and supports needed to implement change, simple solutions always seem just out of reach. I support leaders to in their efforts to be proactive and involve their teams and community partners by building in methods and time for co-creation of solutions.

Healthcare is a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week commitment. Moving to a place of engagement, proactiveness, and clarity is worth taking steps today so that you and your teams are making each action count. With the right support, your team can move forward with purpose, curiosity and collaboration.

 

 

As an adult educator my curiosity is in the transformational journey of learning, teaching, and ultimately challenging of the status quo. How we learn to approach complex challenges, bring together different perspectives, and build new interdisciplinary knowledge is why I do what I do.

As adult learners, outcome-based learning is extremely important to measuring relevance of education in our busy lives. However, at the core of my approach is also a desire to find value in the process.

No two trees are exactly alike.

My responsibility as a facilitator is to create space for learning that is safe and inclusive. Each adult leaner that participates brings with them diverse values and experiences. This means that how they engage and what they see as relevant is individualized. Dialogue and reflective practice are two of the most powerful tools I apply to the assessment phase of my approach.

Complex situations require partnerships, judgements and innovation, all elements that affect the process, content, and results. It is through exploration and curiosity that we begin to uncover what the end result will be.

Growth is not linear.

Within the ecosystem of healthcare everything is connected, so you can’t make changes to one part of the system without impacting others. However, many working in healthcare experience siloed funding, timelines, deliverables, and structures that are used to provide infrastructure and accountability in our healthcare delivery.

Working from a strategic place and continually acknowledging the relationships and interdependencies within healthcare changes how we approach implementing change.  

Healthcare is an ecosystem.

The third aspect of my approach is training. I find inspiration in the growth rings of a tree. We see the transformational events such as fires or other damage. We see variation throughout the years. We can find comfort that even though it is circular in nature we are not ending up at the same spot each year, instead we build on what has come before.

One of the frequent complaints I hear just before we have a breakthrough is “we tried this 5 years ago, why would this be any different?”

What I bring…
