Keynote: Leading Change Without the Resistance: An Introduction to the Signature Style

The Signature Style™ is a philosophical approach to implementing change with a 20-year track record of successes on major national healthcare reform initiatives with U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) and Medicare (CMS). Rather than a list of specific things to do, it is a breakthrough methodology that generates and sustains the shifts in thinking essential for more people making more of the right decisions more often, no matter what situation is faced. The Signature Style™ is built on the belief that implementing successful change/improvement would be much easier if we didn’t cause so much resistance to begin with. Through the Signature Style a culture emerges to be continuously engaged in discovering the latest version of “how”, toward creating the ever-evolving outcomes we desire. You will leave this session with a simple replicable tool enabling you to produce more of what you want, more quickly and with less stress and effort.

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Achieve higher levels of buy-in, both more quickly and easily.
  2. Have more of their people operating at higher levels of performance.
  3. Tap into deeper levels of people’s innovation and creativity.
