#11 Welcome new staff members. Whether it’s a new graduate or an experienced staffer, extend your hand to shake, introduce yourself, and offer to show them the ropes. Check in with them from time to time to see how they’re doing, and ask if they need anything.
If you’re still thinking you can’t possibly make a difference and turn the tide on your unit or in department, remember John F. Kennedy’s quote: “One person can make a difference, and every person must try.” It all starts with you.
Tell me how you and your department are fostering horizontal respect via any of my Social Media platforms.
