Hello, my respectful readers!
Yesterday, I noticed this big roadmap on the office wall of our Senior Director of Social Work and Patient/Family Engagement at the hospital:
Respectfully, I realize that parts of that important roadmap are difficult to read. I hope this helps:
In case it doesn’t, I respectfully submit this list of behaviors promoting a respectful culture:
- Intentionally engaging and including all constituents by participation and information sharing
- Spending time with people
- Introducing new employees via walkabouts through the department
- Saying thank you
- Asking questions
- Listening more, talking less
- Paraphrasing to check understanding
- Coming up with at least 3 possible rationales for an action
- Making eye contact
- Saying “hi” to everyone
- Helping those who are lost
- Show gratitude frequently
- Asking for and accepting help when needed
- Asking for feedback across, down, up
Yesterday, I met our neighbor Will Isenberg, who is offering a roadmap for a respectful culture …
I’m voting for Will on September 10 because I believe his roadmap will lead to a more respectful culture.
Today, I will be respectfully appearing on the podcast Heart to Heart with Anna, in which Anna Jaworski and I will be intentionally engaging and including all listeners by participation and information sharing about my very unusual heart. I don’t yet have a specific roadmap to my episode, but I’ll insert that link later today.
Here’s the link to the podcast. The first airing will be noon USA Eastern time.
And this link lets you listen at your convenience.
I respectfully submit all my other photos from yesterday, wondering which offer a roadmap for a respectful culture:
What music comes to mind when you think of a roadmap to a respectful culture?
This is what comes up on YouTube:
This shows up, too:
Now I’m asking for feedback across, down, up, with a respectful roadmap to the comments section, below.
Since gratitude is such an important part of a roadmap to a respectful culture, thanks to all who helped me create this blog post and — of course! — to YOU.
