The Golden Circle
What
Every organization on the planet
knows WHAT they do. These are
products they sell or the services
they offer.
How
Some organizations
know HOW they do it. These
are the things that make
them special or set them
apart from their competition.
Why
Very few organizations know WHY
they do what they do. WHY is not
about making money. That’s a result.
It’s a purpose, cause or belief. It’s the
very reason your organization exists.
Reflection
∗ Instead of looking at past experiences:
∗
∗
∗
∗
∗
Think-> what outcome do I want?
What does that look like?
How does it feel?
Am I committed to it?
How do I get there?

HR 1906
Inpatient Rehabilitation Act of 2015
∗ "This legislation will undo the unnecessary barriers
imposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services in 2010 that placed limitations on what types
of therapy a beneficiary could receive… these
limitations restrict recreational therapy from being
prescribed, despite it being medically necessary in
many cases.“ GT Thompson
Why is this important?
