Ankota COO, Sara Moore, has created a few initiatives to spark conversations about community in the home care industry.
Among other efforts, she created AHomeCareCommunity.com to provide a place online for folks in home care to share ideas, offer Best Practices and resources, and to promote events. She has also started “Monday Moore Mantras.” She recently sends them via email on Mondays, so despite the fact that this blog posts on Tuesdays, here is this week’s Monday More Mantra:
I have had the opportunity of conversing with
Brian Oblinger, a Chief Community Officer and Strategic Consultant, over the kindred passion of Community. Having a peer who can provide advice, common interests, and just good healthy conversation has been a refreshing activity in my efforts to build AHCC.
On one of Brian and my conversations, he shared a resource page with me (you can find it
here). On last week’s mantra, we talked about making a plan and sticking with it. So let’s explore this a little further. I found this
Community Plan tool
to be a helpful resource found on his site. (You can also listen to very interesting podcasts as well!)
This continued planning theme inspired this week’s Monday Moore Mantra.
Limited time is not an excuse
Today’s mantra expands upon planning and is inspired by a quote by Leonard Bernstein
– an American composer, conductor, pianist, music educator, author, and lifelong humanitarian.
“To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan,
and not quite enough time.”
This quote makes me smile. We never have enough time, but that doesn’t mean we can’t push toward our goal.
Call to Action
Last week we thought about our goals. Those nagging items that we are pushing to do but haven’t built a plan yet. Take an example and use this tool to make the initial plan. We don’t have enough time anyway, so we might as well do our best.
Consider sharing your examples or ask questions in this week’s
community forum conversation
If you haven’t already, please check out
A Home Care Community and if you feel inspired, become a member! The conversation pages are a big part of the community, so dig into previous conversations or start your own.
If you have specific community goals that you would like to drive for your company and would like to chat, send us a note (in the share an idea section in our contact page). We will schedule 1:1 meetings to help you move forward building your community!
Also! If you haven’t heard already, AHCC will be awarding a caregiver of the month award every month starting in January 2021. Nominate your caregiver here!
With hope and gratitude,
Sara Moore, Chief Operating Officer
