July 23, 2015: “Light ‘em Up or Let ‘em Go!”
Presenter: Christopher Ridenhour, Director of Employee Engagement and Hospitality Training
Transforming organizational cultures requires each of us to become role models for the behaviors and attitudes we expect from others. This session will be useful for anyone who recognizes they haven’t fully reached their full potential as a role model and champion for change; needs research-based tools for inspiring and motivating colleagues to higher levels of performance and cooperation; and seeks a clear road to establishing a positive and lasting leadership legacy.

June 23, 2015: 2:00 p.m. CT
Dr. Al Power is the author of Dementia Beyond Disease: Enhancing Well-Being. In this webinar, Dr. Power will look at the experience of dementia through the seven domains of well-being — identity, connectedness, security, autonomy, meaning, growth, and joy — and explore how each is challenged, both by brain changes and by our attitudes and care systems, and how we can use transformational approaches to restore each domain even for people with advanced cognitive change.
Dr. Power will also talk about why many “nonpharmacological interventions” and alternative therapies don’t really work any better than pills. Participants in the webinar will learn to view dementia in a new light and will challenge many of the approaches that have been taken for granted.
