  • Stephen Covey’s “8th Habit” Going beyond effectiveness to greatness
  • “8th Habit” Opportunity I can go to any group, and I do it all the time, all over the world, and I ask a simple question: “How many honestly believe that the vast majority of the workforce in your organizations possess more talent, more intelligence, more capability, more creativity, more resourcefulness than their present jobs require or even allow them to use?” Literally, almost everyone raises their hands…. Think of the loss of what we could call “voice,” of people’s intelligence, capability, creativity. And yet I can ask the next question: … “How many feel pressured to produce more for less?” and you know what, the same amount of hands go up. Now just put those two questions together: Here there’s this enormous capability and talent and intelligence, and also this great pressure to produce more for less, and they’re not able to even use it. -- Stephen Covey
  • Stephen Covey’s “8th Habit” Going beyond effectiveness to greatness “Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs”
  • Giving Voice to Some Stories...
  • Twitter Case Study: Listening
  • Ensuing Conversation
  • Affirming our Employees Dear staff, This 4 minute video actually made me tear up…the patients mentioning our Judd Sessions, classes and pamphlets…in relation to their satisfaction with their care. How wonderful to hear. The patient/family testimonials reminded me how we are making a difference through patient education in the lives of our patients/families.
  • Jillayn Hey’s “Remarkable” Story “One statement has stuck out above all of the medical jargon written by the surgeons and various nurses who cared for me, and that is this: ‘patient's stay was unremarkable.’ Well, although things went fairly smoothly after a difficult surgery, I would like to say that there was nothing unremarkable about my experience with Mayo.”
  • Therapeutic Storytelling... “I recently read an (Utne Reader) article ... (which said) that through telling our personal stories of illness and disease, we assist in creating a new story of wellness that facilitates healing and in turn directs a person towards recovery. This is just one aspect that Sharing Mayo Clinic provides. It is not only an opportunity for many patients and perhaps future patients to tell their unique stories to work their way towards health but it also provides a voice for its employees to share parts of their daily work which I know must include joy and sorrow as some of us become well and some of us unfortunately do not. In my opinion, this is just another area that Mayo is ahead of the curve in caring for its patients and obviously their employees as well.”
  • Don’t (just) pitch the media. Be the media.
