Service



When you hear the word  Service what images are conjured up in your mind? 

A military member who serves our country?

A server bringing a meal you are waiting for?  
Serving your community? 

Providing customer service or having your car in for service?

My point is that the word Service means a lot of different things depending on the situation and whether you are the customer or the person that provides a service.

I think of Service from a perspective of deliberate intent. What do I mean by that?

If you work in the food service industry, your role can be to serve food from a cafeteria line; literally scooping mounds of mac n’ cheese on trays. You do that because you need to pay the bills, or keep a roof over your head – good stuff.

However, if you are serving that food with  “service-minded” intent, in other words, you want to serve that mac n’ cheese with pride, professionalism and with the intent to please the customer, you have a deliberate intent. That makes all the difference in how you feel you’ve performed at your job, and how the customer feels about the food and service they received.

This mindset is not reserved for those in food service.

Working with a deliberate intent and a service-minded attitude changes how you approach your work and how you work with others, no matter if you are flipping burgers or flipping charts.

It’s all in how you approach each day, So Work With Me, People!

Collaboration


One of the best parts of working on team is collaboration. I have to believe each of us gains some sort of benefit from listening to our work colleagues share their ideas and really dig deep to either find a solution, resolve an issue, change a process or generate a new one.

The dynamic of that working group can be super productive and they can accomplish a tremendous amount and develop and generate ideas that make a difference in the workplace.


So what components make up a good working collaborative team?

Like-minded people? Shared vision?   People with similar skills or background?

No, not exactly.

Much like the team you work with daily, having a variance in thinking, skills and background helps to generate thoughtful ideas.



This is how you should hire! Avoid the Stepford Wives Syndrome and hire people that are NOT like you, but bring a variance of ideas and skills – I digress.

As an active participant in collaborative efforts, I thrive on the different opinions and suggestions that come from those who have had different experiences and come from a different background. Working towards a shared vision and goal is always going to be the task, it’s the discussion that happens on the way there is the best!

So bring your experiences, ideas and vision to us here at All Children's Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine and check out all of the opportunities here!
