“I’m stepping up my game,” says Vivian
At the All-Staff Forum held in Vancouver last December, we unveiled our My VCH survey results. Our frank discussion covered common themes and areas for improvement, including my own.
As you may recall, I made a commitment to each and every one of you to step up my game in terms of my own leadership. I pledged to be more visible, to ensure amazing work is recognized and to solicit your valuable ideas and input.
And, I announced that this “Luddite” would begin using Twitter as another means to connect with you and fulfill my promise.
Being new to Twitter, I asked for your help and, most graciously, the offers of help quickly followed. Nadya Repin, Isabella Mori (@moritherapy), and Chandan Khaira (@chakhaira1) have all shared their know-how with me so far. My heartfelt thanks to them all for teaching me the ins and outs of tweeting.
I’m still a firm believer in face-to-face communication, and Twitter will never replace that, but it will help me hear from some of you who I don’t often get to see, and it will enable me to shine a spotlight on some of the exceptional work that you do every day.
So, I’ve started tweeting during my meetings and walkabouts, and I’m truly enjoying the experience and sharing stories of the amazing people who work here.
Now, I would like to invite you to connect with me on Twitter. My handle is @VCHVivian.
I want to hear your ideas for how we can move things forward for you, your colleagues and for our shared patients and clients. I want to share your stories about the incredible things your teams are doing to support high-quality patient care in Vancouver Acute.
I want to connect with you and recognize our extraordinarily dedicated people.
