NEW RELEASE - For the "L" of It! Episode 8: "Collaboration - Listen More, Talk Less"

Welcome back to “For the L of It”.


Did you wake up today feeling a bit overwhelmed? Thinking, I can’t continue doing everything by myself or you’re feeling isolated or disconnected with remote work.


Or maybe you’re feeling completely micromanaged and not finding the joy in what you are doing these days.


Leana, Kathy and I have been there and can relate. So, no time better than now to discuss collaboration.


As women we often have this urge to do everything on our own. But quite frankly we can’t or shouldn’t do it on our own. It’s time to be open to collaboration and how that can actually bring out the best in all of us.


Collaboration is a journey of new perspectives, vulnerability and curiosity. And how do we get there – by listening.


Enjoy your listening journey!


You know what we say – Do it for the “L” of it!!

As usual, you are right on here. It took me a long time to learn that the people with the answers are those closest to the work. I often felt like a go between with the ":tellers" at the top ( you must increase whatever by X) and the people doing the work. What worked best for me was to tell them the goal and then ask them to tell us the best way to get there and what they needed to do so. All healthcare settings are not alike and so a new process will not work at every site.....but if you give them the goal....they can figure out what they need to do to get 'er done…

Thanks for your comments. And yes, we all need reminders that the people who do the work and understand the context have a great amount of knowledge and experience to share.
