Where We Live
Vice president discusses how to go about change
When shareholders envision how their community might be improved, any new idea may be welcome to some, and rejected by others. Under discussion will be why it is that some fear change— even if it might be for the good.
Join members of the Where We Live Club on Thursday, July 17, Clubhouse 3, Room 4, at 6:30 p.m. for the discussion.
Vice President Anne Walshe will discuss the stages of change and what it is that community leaders need to understand to overcome the fear of change so that progress, positive steps, can be made toward improvement. How do we measure the benefit of a proposed change to convince others that it’s a good idea?
Anne is a graduate of Columbia University with an MBA in healthcare administration from Mt. Sinai Medical School. She has more than 50 years of experience in making changes in the delivery of healthcare.
Anne Walshe asks: “Is our community culture one that is resistant to change? If so, what can we do about it?” At this meeting shareholders will discuss community changes wanted and how to make them happen and how they might benefit the community. “What are the objections? Is it possible to create consensus in any group, even on a Mutual Board or the GRF Board?”
