Discovering the Power of Words: Hudson Grande’s Journey to Unity in 2024

Category: Senior Living

Author: Cheryl Walker, Executive Director

At the beginning of each year, Michael Buckley, Arrow’s personal and professional development coach and “The Chief Feelings Officer,” asks each team member to pick a “Word of the Year.”

To help individuals come up with a word, he offers questions like:

What does your life need more of right now?

And my life will be improved if I have more of what?

Michael reminds us that sometimes, we need more focus. Then, other times, it’s more compassion, and at times, we need more fun! In past years, team members have chosen words such as clarity, confidence, intentional, commitment, consideration, and receptiveness.

This year, team members are actively selecting a Word of the Year for themselves and collaborating to create a word for their community. Picking a personal word and community word is a commitment to doing work on themselves and the “we” and “us” work they want to accomplish as a community.

The Hudson Grande Senior Living word of the year is unity.

This word is significant because we can achieve so much more as a department head group. We approach every day united in direction and goals, keeping an open mind and discussing possibilities. By setting an intention for the year, we’re shaping our community for success. The leadership team will come together with each team’s thoughts, concerns, and ideas to make improvements that work for the community.

We will incorporate the word into the community’s daily operations by approaching everything with a united thought process. We all want the same things. How we achieve them will be decided as a united process.

Our community’s biggest goals for the year are to increase occupancy, decrease staff turnover, and increase net operating income. Hudson Grande wants a much greater presence in the greater Hudson community. We plan to expand our outreach to achieve this.

The chosen Word of the Year should inspire the team. If it doesn’t, it means they selected the wrong word. Hold yourself and others accountable throughout the year. Engage with team members about their Word of the Year and keep it as a frequent topic of discussion in your community. Monitor your achievements using your 2024 Word of the Year, and we eagerly anticipate celebrating them with you!
