What We are Learning from Salon Conversations
Creative Health Care Management began hosting a series of salons as a way to connect with our colleagues and provide a space to share what is on your hearts and minds. Our website displays the quote: "Conversations change people, and people change the world." With that sentiment CHCM developed a venue for debriefing knowing that debriefing often helps people cope. Salons have been an integral part of CHCM's history starting with our founder Marie Manthey and used in a variety of settings as a way for people to gather and have meaningful conversations. Salons, and specifically our salons in response to COVID-19, provide the opportunity for healthcare colleagues to gather to have open, thoughtful conversations and network with other colleagues from different organizations.

In a conversational format, Gen Guanci and Marky Medeiros will walk through different journey phases and offer recommendations that will resume activities toward your journey to excellence and encourage colleagues to take action.

A Sense of Selfness

During times of crisis, change, and uncertainty, it is commonplace to look to others for direction, security, and reinforcement of self-worth. Yet, within each of us, lies the ability to generate these positive feelings of "selfness."

Much of your self-worth is, and will continue to be, driven by your inner voice, your self-talk and your environment.

Q:  Recently I had a client ask me, "Is there any way you can do a virtual Document Writing Workshop?"

A: Absolutely. As many of you know, CHCM was a virtual company long before virtual was popular. We have the technology and the know-how to deliver many of our services and programs remotely. In March and April alone, our virtual support included conducting mock Magnet® site visits, document writing workshops, document review and feedback, data education and analysis, MPD coaching, and a wide variety of coaching on shared governance, and transition to practice programs. We will work with you and your team to plan the logistics, timing, sessions and customize our partnerships in line with what works best for you and our consultants.  Contact us for more details.

Congratulations to our colleagues at The Miriam Hospital  for being recognized for the SIXTH time  as a Magnet ®  Hospital. Your dedication and hard work paid off as the ANCC appraisers highlighted 7 exemplars. We are honored to be a part of your journey to excellence!
