Thank You, High Performers

Thank You, High Performers

As we continue on our OMH journey of bringing the best possible care to our patients and their family members with our high performance, it led me to consider our high performers.

Theoretically, after going through our rigorous peer interviewing process, every new hire is a high performer. Qualities that high performers possess, in general, include: high energy, courage, intentionality, high productivity, selflessness, and the ability to influence others in a positive way.

On the flip side of this coin are the undesirable qualities of manipulation, hostility, passive aggressiveness, negativity, and a tendency to find a reason not to do something. The organization recently conducted its 'high, solid, low' conversations with all our staff. These conversations were specific to our organization and what we value. This should provide reassurance to our staff because even if they don't find themselves considered to be a high performer, they now have a roadmap to improvement.

As we found that most of you are high performers, I would ask that you provide guidance and leadership to your coworkers to assist them in their personal journeys. We are better together! Every day, I feel we gain clarity in all that we're trying to accomplish as a group. You are some of the most courageous people with whom I have the extreme pleasure of working.

As Spring is upon us, let's use this time to spring into the future of the organization with intentionality, purpose, and energy. I appreciate all of you!
