Can you believe it’s time to flip the calendar to a new month again? Tomorrow is the first day of August! Phew . . . and it’s a hot one. The dog days of summer are enough to test anyone’s patience and civility!
We can’t take a break from the heat, but we can take a break from incivility! August is National Win with Civility Month.
Civility expert, Dr. P. M. Forni, author of The Civility Solution writes, “Incivility often occurs when people are stressed, unhappy, and rushed.” Sound familiar?
As a healthcare professional, you (and your co-workers) probably spend a good portion of your workday feeling stressed, unhappy and rushed. It’s no wonder healthcare workplaces have become breeding grounds for incivility.
Will you commit to embracing civility for this one month? Our challenge to you is to do one thing each day that honors your commitment. Of course you can always do more if you want!
What will you do to honor this observance? Leave us a comment! We’d love to hear from you!
