The importance of love in military health care

180518 military healthcare

Over the past year, I have been blessed to engage in the military health care space under the dedicated leadership of an amazing colleague.

Much of the focus has been on teaching and coaching heart and mind communication aka Studer Group’s AIDET Plus the Promise℠.

The process has been challenging and oh so rewarding. Both And.

Working in this space has been such a blessing. But as I am sure many of you have experienced, there are times when you are physically and mentally drained after sharing all you have.

On one of these days, as I was packing up after a full day of trainings and validations, a veteran returned to the room in which I had been teaching.

He was a major I believe, who had retired from the Air Force, and was now working at this healthcare organization to (in his words) “ensure my brothers and sisters in arms receive great care.”

And he shared the following:

“Tom, what you do … You share love. And that is what we need. Thank you. Thank you for being here. Thank you for your teaching and coaching. And most important, thank you for exuding love.”

Studer Group is an amazing organization which allows us to share brilliant tactics and impactful strategies. To teach and to coach. To contribute to and witness the changes in the organizations we serve. To love.

Studer Group positions us to share love with those who need us. And according to the Major, love is exactly what military health care truly needs.
