Triggered, but Changing & Legal Update

Presented by: Christopher Ridenhour


Welcome to the research-based, best practices that promise to kick the Workforce Crisis directly in its tail; And… by the way, the solutions to the Great Resignation are intimately tied to DEI competencies! Let’s go further. Operationalizing honor, safety, and belonging unleashes elevated team morale, stellar engagement, and unprecedented retention.

In this lively and engaging program, Christopher seeks partners, explorers, bystanders, champions, skeptics, and cynics who aspire to trade their book knowledge for definitive action and measurable success. Together, we’ll identify the events, policies, traditions, and unwritten rules that guarantee  successful DEI initiatives.

More importantly, participants will grow in our capacity to use words that create greater rapport during conversations centered on race, class, or any other aspect of identity. Robust interactivity, revelation, and authentic belly laughs come together to minimize the cultural conflicts that defy the promises made by our organization’s website.

Hoping, wishing, and crossed fingers are no longer necessary as DEI strategies. Real talk. Real tools. Real connection. Triggered, but Changing is your golden ticket to the worries, wounds, and wins of a 25-Year Nationally traveled DEI Road Warrior. Strap in, we’re going deep!

For the last two decades, Christopher served as Chief Learning Officer to two large multi-site Health Care corporations. His responsibilities included “actionizing” the Mission, Vision, and Values into daily commitments from personnel across all levels of the organization. He also directed system-wide Onboarding, DEI, Leadership Development, and Engagement strategies, resulting in above-industry increases in retention.

Over the same time, Christopher’s passion and enthusiasm led to innumerable opportunities to travel nationally as a perennial Conference Keynote and Performance Improvement Consultant. Audiences spanning The Pioneer Network, LeadingAge(all state affiliates), Argentum, AHCA/NCAL, NADONA, ANFP, AHE, among many others, have profoundly benefitted from the tools, techniques, and belly laughs that are hallmarks of his high energy trainings.

As recognition for the years of service to hundreds of communities across the country, LeadingAge awarded Christopher “Facilitator of the Year.” Christopher asks us to imagine the inevitable positive outcomes for our clients when EVERY colleague, across all levels, and walks-of-life, feels cherished and fired up to serve!
