Respect and Compassion Communicating Time Frames Anticipate the customer’s needs Communicate time-frames and other options if we suspect the wait time is too long Address comfort needs
Respect and Compassion Diverse patient and employee population Stereotyping in the media and elsewhere makes it easy to make assumptions about people These assumptions may get in the way of the platinum rule – treat others as they would want to be treated
Collaboration We make decisions with all those affected present Communication is respectful whether oral, email or other written forms We resolve conflicts and share differing opinions We say thank you We provide feedforward
Collaboration We actively listen We honor the multidisciplinary approach to care We need and rely on the team We recognize that open communication is critical for care and safety
Collaboration When we listen with our: Ears Eyes Heart We listen for: Content Body language Emotions Listening is: 40%Skill 60%Discipline/Focus Speaking rate125 wpm Listening rate500 - 750 wpm Facts about Listening
Collaboration Activity: Roleplay Demonstration What did you observe? How would you describe the communication and collaboration between the doctor and patient? How could this situation have been improved?
Collaboration Active Listening Skills Allow people to finish sentences without interrupting Ask clarifying questions Maintain strong eye contact when listening Remember and use people’s names Pay attention to body language Focus on what people are saying instead of thinking of what I am going to say Listen non-defensively when people are upset Notice assumptions you may be making
Collaboration Paraphrasing Exercise In pairs: Choose a speaker and a listener Choose a controversial subject and express your views and opinions about it (2 minutes) Your partner will paraphrase what you said with his/her own words (1 minute) Check to see if the speaker was understood Switch roles
Collaboration Business Communication Tips Think before you write Use spell check and read it over Do not debate issues via email Do not use email to criticize someone Only copy others are your response if it is absolutely necessary Be conscious of tone – never email when angry Humor can be tricky Using all caps is like screaming Beware of abbreviations such as BTW
Collaboration Multidisciplinary collaboration is one of the foundational ideas in the CVC Collaboration is important for: – Patient safety – Efficiency – Better outcomes
Collaboration Exercise: Turn to page 16 in your manual. Each block represents a well known phrase. Try to solve as many as possible in the next 3 minutes.
Innovation Constantly seek ways to improve Empowered to solve problems Open minded to new approaches and feedback Use an understanding of best practices to improve delivery of care Strive to create the “ideal patient experience” with every interaction Learn from mistakes to improve future outcomes
Innovation Systems and processes need to support service excellence If there is a gap between system performance and service needs, it is everyone’s responsibility to fix it How? – Michigan Quality System (MQS) – Plan Do Check Act (PDCA)
Commitment to Excellence Take pride in our appearance Wear CVC nametags Gather ongoing and regular feedback Strive for first time quality Follow through on problems to resolution Patients and families come first Recognize each other for demonstrating the principles
Commitment to Excellence Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) University of Michigan Ross School of Business New way of thinking – focus on creating a positive culture Focus on what we do well Celebrate success
Commitment to Excellence From… Our job is to overcome major problems To….. Our job is to embrace and enable our highest potential
Commitment to Excellence Problem Solving Abundance Problem IdentificationAppreciating and Valuing Cause AnalysisExplaining Success Identify Problems Creating Sustainability Action PlanningDesigning a Destiny
Commitment to Excellence In every organization, something works well. There is always something positive to celebrate. The questions we ask and the language we use help determine our vision of the future. Focusing on abundance gaps, compared to deficit gaps, leads to the “heliotropic effect”.
Commitment to Excellence The Heliotropic Effect
Commitment to Excellence Those who positively energize others are higher performers. Positive energizers tend to enhance the work of others. People who interact with or are connected to energizers also perform better. Higher Performance Enhance Work of Others Positive Energizers
Commitment to Excellence Activity: Best Self Ask one person in your group to write each person’s name on a separate, blank piece of paper (one name per page) Everyone needs sticky notes Identify positive traits you see in each person (You can use the list of adjectives in your manual) Write the positive traits you have observed on sticky notes and then place it on that person’s page Give each person their sheet – this is their reflected best self Although you may not know the people in your small group very well, you can already see positive qualities or special traits in each person. p.19
Commitment to Excellence Energy: What happens to the energy in the room when people provide this kind of feedback to one another? Emotions: What was your own emotional reaction to receiving this feedback from others? Connections: What is the impact on interpersonal relationships?
Commitment to Excellence The Power of Storytelling
Commitment to Excellence Recognition for each other – U-Factor – You’re Super – Thank you notes – Verbal thanks – Other Recognition by patients – Donations funded many of the amenities in the building and the gardens outside – Patients and families often want to give something to create a legacy for the future – If a patient asks, “What can I do for the CVC?”, refer them to CVC development
Commitment to Excellence “ Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive, because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive, because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.” Mahatma Gandhi
