Leading Person Centred Teams
If You Always Do What You've Always Done, You'll Always Get What You've Always Got.” ~ Henry Ford.
This BPP Masterclass facilitated by Sheree Lewis identifies highly effective techniques and approaches to get different results when leading person-centred teams.

Valued Roles for All
Jane Sherwin leads participants to understand how enabling the individuals participation in the community with a focus on Valued Roles gives a firm foundation for service planning and cooperative action. Roles start with the person, who they are, what their passions and interests are, what makes sense in their own individual life in their own local community. The crafting of valued roles is highly individualised and requires the provider has deep understanding of the unique response each person requires.
We challenge you to join our investigation of “the purpose of life is a life with purpose” with Jane Sherwin.
