Supporting Mindful Choices, Polarity Intelligence™ and Personal Alignment with the Dynamic Balance Effect™ Framework

If you are like most of the healthcare leaders we talk with, the past year was a year full of challenges and changes. It looks like based on what we have seen thus far in 2021 those challenges are going to continue for a while longer.   Some of those challenges and changes may have bumped up against some of your values, like maintaining your well-being, supporting your team(s), and connecting with others. You may have even experienced some moral distress having to make decisions that are not aligned with your values. In this episode we dialogue about making choices based on values, managing interdependent values and the importance of personal alignment.  We share how our Dynamic Balance Effect™ Framework empowers healthcare leaders to make mindful choices, leverage their Polarity Intelligence™, personally align their values and purpose, and how important each of these are when it comes to resilience and balance. You probably already realize this episode is packed with leadership super-powers!  Go ahead and listen now.Visit the show notes here for more: https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcast Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions, we may use your question on a future episode.Go Here to join the Work Life Balance Bootcamp Early Interest List and download our FREE perspective paper The 3 Biggest Mistakes Healthcare Leaders Make When Trying To Achieve Work Life Balance.

#79 Navigating the Rough Waters of Being a Nurse When a Family Member is Ill featuring Roberta Young

It was a delight to interview Roberta Young about her article Being a Nurse in the Family.  Roberta explains what led up to co-authoring the article in My American Nurse in January of 2020 with her colleague Teresa Anderson.  During the episode we discuss these unique situations and how the experience can be leveraged to improve or change how one chooses to practice as a nurse.  Even though the conversation centers on nurses’ experiences, we acknowledge other clinicians also have similar experiences.   Early in the interview Roberta shares during the pauses in her career over the past few years she took advantage of that time to reflect.  During that time, she realized she can get swept up in leadership roles, working long hours and giving of herself.  She concluded she would be a better leader if she lived intentionally, maintained balance in her life, and paid attention to herself.   Roberta reveals one of the things that has come out of her work in creating work life balance and defining her values and what matters most is a sense that she can write and document meaningful stories. Roberta shares her thoughts about storytelling and how we remember through stories.  She explains a powerful story will have a larger impact than going through why something is important.  Story telling can also help you heal and learn from the experiences you have. Roberta shares her experiences when her mother was ill and as the nurse in the family when she was in awe of her colleagues and other times frustrated or disappointed. She shares how as the clinician in the family you can have a positive impact on clinicians caring for your loved ones during disappointing times.   It was also noted during the interview that clearly defining and stating out loud the roles and responsibilities among family members is an essential element of care coordination and managing family dynamics. Roberta also shares using some reflection questions clinicians can apply what they are learning in or from their experience to their clinical practice.   Roberta recognizes as a leader that being compassionate and supportive with staff during the times when their families need them balances out, especially when clinicians are given the opportunity to rest, take care of themselves, and can come back healed. We discuss the tensions/polarities that naturally show up in these situations such as self and other, work and home, and candor and diplomacy. You probably already realize this is a phenomenal and important discussion for anyone who is a clinician or healthcare leader.  Go ahead and listen now!Visit the show notes here for more: https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcast NEWS FLASH!  The doors to our Virtual Work Life Balance Bootcamp are open!  Wouldn’t you agree leveraging a proven strategy for Work Life Balance is the absolute best way to start the New Year!

Episode #78: Looking at Healthcare and the COVID-19 Pandemic Through a Part and Whole Lens

You may or may not realize you have been living and participating in the Part and Whole polarity your whole life!Your first lessons regarding part and whole occurred when you were a child, and you were learning to share with your friends.  During the COVID-19 pandemic we have struggled with uncertainty, overwhelming amounts of change and we’ve felt stuck, drained, and protective of the things we value most. The tension of the Part and Whole polarity is showing up at the individual, family, team, and system levels.  In the fight against COVID-19 the tension between part and whole show up as Individual Freedom and The Common Good and in Health and the Economy. One of the easiest ways to think about part and whole is to picture the links in a chain.  Each link is a part, and the chain is the whole.  You probably already realize the chain is only as strong as its weakest link.  What are you doing to make sure you are strong and not the weakest link?  If you want to be a strong link in the chain, listen to this episode and learn the power of balancing the energy of the Part and Whole polarity.Visit the show notes here for more:https://www.missinglogic.com/new-podcastEXCITING NEWS!  The doors to our Virtual Work Life Balance Bootcamp for Healthcare Leaders are open!  Wouldn’t you agree leveraging a proven strategy for Work Life Balance is the absolute best way to start the New Year!
