“Far from being out of touch, leaders who work to reconnect the health care workforce to a sense of purpose and restore the meaning behind what we do and how we do it are facing some of health care’s biggest challenges head on. Health care leaders have to understand that their choice is not between addressing all the pressures on the system or supporting the workforce. To improve our whole system and get out of this morass we find ourselves in today, leaders have to first support those who devote their lives to health care.”
Today’s post quotes an article from IHI (the Institute for Healthcare Improvement) titled: “Don’t Talk To Me About Joy in Work” by Kedar Mate. This shift from burnout to a focus on purpose and well-being is the topic of a few workshops that SixSEED Partners will be facilitating in healthcare organizations over the next couple of months. As Mate states in his article, this isn’t an either/or situation. We can have compassion for the numerous demands facing healthcare workers and leaders as we also courageously lead our purpose-driven work.
We’d love to hear what resonated for you. Feel free to offer a comment at: https://sixseedpartners.com/contact/
