The process of change leads to growth not only in the science of our field but in our personal selves as well. In the process of life and work, we learn all our lessons, some of which stay with us forever and become personal truths. These lessons or personal truths shape how businesses are run, how leaders lead and how an industry grows. This panel presentation will offer the opportunity to hear from experienced and successful company leaders about some of the lessons they have learned. Panel participants will each discuss five to ten lessons learned from their time working in the field of developmental disabilities and growing their perspective organizations. Panelists represent a small, mid- and large size organization.
