Wib 2 13 newsletter

  1. 1. Issue 8 | 1/31/13 February Newsletter President’s Message  Building  good  relationships  in  the  workplace  is  in  many  ways  similar  to  building  good  relationships  outside  of  work.    Similar  to  making  friends  in  your  neighborhood  or  at  church,  you  need  to  get  a  good  feel  for  the  culture,  and  then  rely  on  some  common  sense.    February  is  known  as  the  month  for  love  and  relationships.    I  recently  read  some  tips  for  building  quality  relationships  in  the  office,  with  the  neighbors,  or  in  your  family.       *Do   not   try   too   hard.     Anyone   who   comes   across   as   too   eager,   whether   at   work   or   in   another   type   of   relationship,   could   turn   people   off.     When   you   try   too   hard,   you   might   come  across  as  pushy.    Take  time  to  listen  to  others.   *Earn   people’s   respect.     One   way   to   build   your   connections   at   work   is   through   your   attitude,  quality  of  work  and  reliability.     *Do   not   rely   on   email   alone.     Email   is   so   popular   these   days,   but   it   is   somewhat   impersonal.     Make  an  extra  effort  to  actually  talk  to  a  person.     Pick  up  the  phone  or  stop   by  to  visit.    Face  to  face  interaction  is  key  for  solid  relationships.   *Seek   to   understand   others.     Try   to   be   patient   and   seek   to   understand  where  they  are  coming  from.     *Do  what  you  say  you  will  do.     One  of  the  best  ways  to  build  a   relationship   with   someone   is   to   do   the   things   you   say   you   will   do.    Commitment  and  reliability  will  foster  relationships.     *Do   not   whine.     Be   as   positive   and   friendly   as   you   can   and   people  will  naturally  be  drawn  to  you.           The  February  luncheon  topic  is  “Going  for  Goals”.    This  is  a   perfect  topic  to  rejuvenate  our  New  Year’s  resolutions.    I  hope   to  see  many  of  you  at  the  luncheon!    Tammy  Selley,  President

  7. 7. This is a thank you note we received from one of the Thankscholarship recipients from last year. youLadies,In November I completed my Law Enforcement Officercertification at BATC, thanks to a generous WIB scholarship. It wasquite a journey. The academy began in late May. On the first day itwas clear that I was a bit older than the other 21 males in the classwho had been attending the other sections since January. Being theonly female and the matron was interesting. I held my own duringthe miles and miles of running, endless pushups and sit-ups. I wasbeat up and bruised during the baton and defensive tacticstraining, but I survived. Defensive tactics was the most challengingas it is a personal weakness. I was often paired with the biggestguy in the class (a mere 250 lbs) to prove that even the smallestperson could fight their way out of a situation. And the classworkwas as challenging as any college class, but twice as interesting.The completion of my last law enforcement certificate allows me tomove anywhere in the Cache County Sheriffs Office, as SheriffNelson sees fit. It also provides me with a new knowledge basethat helps me understand the entire law enforcement picture moreclearly. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity that you haveprovided to me. It was a great experience, but I am glad I neverhave to do it again.Respectfully,Holly!-- Holly Dixon Sergeant, Cache County Jail

  9. 9. Did$you$know…$ Research published in the Journal of Pain & Symptom Management found that: terminally-ill patients who received hospice care lived on average 29 days longer than those who did not opt for hospice near the end of life.Our Hospice Team offers specialized knowledge & support at the end of life just asobstetricians & midwives lend support & expertise at the start of life.Hospice can reduce anxiety in both the terminally ill patient & their family by helping them make themost of the time remaining & achieve some level of acceptance.When terminally ill patients make the decision to receive hospice care instead of continued curative treatment,they avoid the dangers of over-treatment.In-home care from a hospice team often means the patient receives greater monitoring than he or she wouldin a hospital.In addition to focusing on the physical health & comfort of a patient, our hospice team also focuses on theemotional needs & spiritual well-being of the terminally ill & their loved ones.Since we offer substantial support & training for family caregivers, it also helps many patients feel less of aburden to their loved ones.
