The Caring Provider Difference
Kimberly Carson, M.Ed.
Vice President, Client Services & Coach, Language of Caring, LLC

Yesterday I had a most unimpressive doctor visit. It left the patient in me feeling somewhat unsatisfied, and the patient experience professional in me disheartened. The experience was filled with missed opportunities to make me feel cared about as a human, knowledgeable about my own body and needs, and involved as a necessary part of my own care.

I’d like to share a summary of key drivers and priorities for action that can help healthcare professionals express compassion so that it permeates their organizational culture.

C.A.R.I.N.G. for Your Staff: The Frontline Leader’s Role in Engagement and Retention
Kimberly Carson, M.Ed.
Vice President, Client Services & Coach, Language of Caring, LLC

“Our employees are our most valuable asset” is often overheard in organizations, and thriving organizations supply plenty of evidence to prove it. These days, smart leaders embrace going beyond the rhetoric and commit to taking strategic steps to inspire, strengthen and appreciate employee engagement. For years, I have helped myself and other leaders remember the foundation and guidelines for creating an environment of engagement in an easily remembered acronym—C.A.R.I.N.G.
