You may want to look up the #TedTalk, “Why #SocraticDialogue should become our #BusinessCard” by Sira Abenoza on #YouTube and take a listen
Really good stuff!
In life and in work, are we actually dialoguing or just talking?
There’s a difference.
If we want to #dialogue, we have to trust and #OpenUp. This seems to be in opposition to so many other #BusinessModels teach. But it may very well be the only one that works!
Great principles for work and for life!
I’m reading a couple books by Eliyahu Goldratt right now and would highly recommend anything he has written!
These principles are most definitely applicable to my field of healthcare quality and patient safety.
I had a family member ask me what Patient Safety is in an attempt to understand what it is that I do. When I explained to him that death numbers from complications related to errors in health care are right up there with cancer and car crashes and that my work revolves around improving processes to make care safer, he replied, “Oh, I thought maybe Patient Safety Officer meant that you stood outside the hospital elevators to make sure patients had seatbelts on!” 🙂
Oh, sometimes I wish it were that simple. But principles like this can make keeping patients safe much simpler!
Principles on #DrivingContinuousImprovement
Based on #TheGoal by #EliyahuGoldratt – #RecommendedReading
•#Improve the overall #system, not just the individual parts
It is almost impossible for even the best of the best to move forward in a culture of blame and anger.
So at home, work, and in every aspect of life, let’s work at bringing out the best in each other. Let’s build strong processes and frameworks for success, being quick to point out gaps in processes but strengths in people.
In living, leading, and loving, every moment is a gift. Invest wisely.
