In this high-energy workshop, we’ll explore the psychology of leading change, an often-ignored part of Deming’s system of profound knowledge. You’ll be inspired to dream about what could be, practice some practical and fun tools, and be reminded why you love your job as a change-maker! 


  • Explore the role of the practice facilitator (aka “quality improvement advisor” or “coach”) and creating a helpful relationship
  • Consider theories of adaptive leadership and appreciative inquiry as tools for an agile, flexible and nimble leader
  • Learn how to use visioning and a Liberating Structure to define what needs to happen (and NOT happen) for your work to be successful
  • Apply design thinking to solving the right problem

Be inspired to take your improvement efforts to the next level.
