KEYNOTE: Enabling Change without a Magic Wand

These slides were developed for Wolverhampton City Council.

Here’s the session overview:

Enabling Change Without a Magic Wand

Together we’ll explore how we can make big ripples with our skills and expertise by adapting our practice to empower colleagues to make a big difference to the children and families in their care.  We’ll consider how subtle changes to our use of language, role modelling and the implementation of a strengths-first approach can sit at the heart of a high-challenge, high-support approach.  Not only will this increase the reach and impact of our work, it will also strengthen our relationships with colleagues across the city.

If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
