Introducing Meaningful Care Matters
Free to be Me
Meaningful Care Matters’ primary goal is to collaboratively create meaningful care cultures where people are ‘Free to be Me’. Why? Every Life Matters. Meaning Matters. Moments Matter. People Matter.
How Meaningful Care Matters is reacting to Coronavirus
Although Person Centred Care is not new, it is still not the norm of people’s experience within health and social care. Sadly, a common experience is one where identity and individualism are eroded as the system continues to go through the motions.
This was never the intent of care cultures.
The time to challenge the status quo is now and the responsibility is ours. We can influence the creation of a new norm in care culture where meaning, connection, moments and feelings matter… Inevitably, where we can be ‘Free to be me’.
As we recalibrate this new norm, we adopt an approach to support operations to be uncompromising in meeting quality, compliance and better practice.
Our approach is twofold:
Any project management program facilitating change will impact on operations. Our operational support as part of a project approach builds internal capability and capacity to prepare for potential changes. By supporting the team through this process, there is a greater opportunity for building resilience and empowering your team to succeed.
A helping hand
The complexity of the care sector and responding to the many moving facets is relentless. Through hard times or in times of needs, we can provide a helping hand to support you and your team.
Training alone often falls short of creating a sustainable change in care culture. Unfortunately, the correlation to changed practice can be minimal at best if not supported from a continuous learning approach.
Our learning and development programs come in many variations, as we recognise the differing learning needs of all of us. The common thread in our programs is asking people to consider differing perspectives and then reinforce learning outcomes in practice. We facilitate ‘training in action’: looking through a different lens to generate new ideas and new approaches to learning.
The key to maintaining sustainable culture change whilst continuing to build upon capability, capacity and resilience of your team is to ensure that the strategy is ‘the culture’.
Strategy is not static; it continues to evolve and simultaneously support the culture for the better. We support strategic planning from a cultural sustainability approach which is adaptive, congruent, flexible and clear in its identity.
Culture is the new strategy.
The common misnomer is that coaching and mentoring are one and the same. They are very different in approach but may be used simultaneously. Mentors share their experiences as a way of supporting development. Coaches support the person to undertake reflection of their practice to ultimately come to their own conclusions from a personal development perspective.
Where we support an emotional intelligence-based model in care cultures, both are relevant tools to support resilience and prevent emotional fatigue in the team. Our Coaching and Mentoring program is designed to support this and promote ongoing resilience and sustainability for the long term.
