Creating a Values-Based Culture 

Thursday // July 23, 2020
9:00 am - 12:00 pm // PAR Office - Lemoyne, PA
Speaker Bio

Your agency culture says more about who you are than anything else. It attracts the kind of employees you will have and the kind of outcomes you will provide for the individuals in your care.

Peter Drucker said, “culture eats strategy for breakfast."
Joe Landis added, “and everything else.”

The seminar, “Creating a Values-Based Culture,” uses the [email protected] framework to address the values your agency reflects. The goal is to put all the hearts to work in your agency, starting with your board, CEO, leadership staff, direct care staff, the individuals served and stakeholders. When all these hearts are working, your culture inspires all your people to do their best, or as Lance Secretan says, "Great leaders inspire…an approach that emanates from a loving serving heart.”

The seminar will focus on 5 values which have emerged as central to Joe over the last 40 years. Joe will use them as a template to assist you in identifying, choosing, and defining key values for your agency; Companionship, Holistic Care, Enthusiasm Appreciated, Partnership, and Membership.
