Every year Arrow’s personal and professional development coach, Michael Buckley, asks everyone to pick a “Word of the Year.” The goal is to look inward and consider what we each need more of and what might improve our lives. Sometimes we need more focus or clarity. Sometimes we need more compassion. Sometimes we just need more fun!
Picking a word for both me and my community is a commitment to doing work on yourself and the “we” and “us” work we want to do as a community.
Looking back on 2022, I am proud to say we have a team of department heads that lead with the attitude of “the answer is always yes.” We are beginning to add new faces to our community on a regular basis and the residents want to give shoutouts monthly to staff that go above and beyond to make Kingsland Walk a great place to live.
Now, looking forward to 2023, what Kingsland Walk Senior Living needs is culture. Our team is working towards fairly and firmly implementing processes that highlight unity, diversity, compassion, and positivity.
We will weave the idea of culture into daily operations of the community with regular employee appreciation, consistent training and in-services, and daily face-to-face conversations with team members. Also, by working side-by-side with staff during peak times to support and assist and holding accountability to ourselves and one another, to create meaningful moments, will help build the culture we are looking for.
What is YOUR WORD? I hope you will pick one too. What does your life need a little more of in 2023? What does “future you” thank you for working on now? Our words are meant to inspire us. If it is not inspiring, it’s not the right word.
And if you are reading this, please hold us accountable. When you visit Kingsland Walk Senior Living] or come to town hall, ask us what our word of the year is and what have we done to support it.
Please look forward to the December 2023 blog where we tell you all the ways we lived in line with our word of the year and all the ways it helped improve our community.
