Limited Capacity filling up

The presentation brings forth the leadership theory of Positive Deviance.  Rather than following top down experts to solve problems, the positive deviance (PD) approach empowers parents and ordinary people impacted by an issue, to discover solutions for themselves.  Positive Deviance is successfully implemented in over forty countries in which there is a letting go of traditional ideas about authority and power, and allowing parents to be innovators, and be leaders of change to solve problems and improve programs.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to: 
  • Describe the successful leadership theory of Positive Deviance and why the leadership approach is a positive way for parents to be the innovators to implement change.
  • Complete a positive change plan using the Positive Deviance approach on an issue of choice.
