This post was written by Isaac Sisneros who serves in the Service Excellence Department of a large hospital system.
Today, I am grateful to serve this hospital and the patients that come here for care. Today, let me be proud of the work that I do; this work is sacred, will I see it as so?
Help me, in this moment, to be grateful for the honor of assisting those in pain, in fear, in anger, or in any other form of suffering; when I see their suffering and am thankful to be of service, I am transformed through empathy, kindness, and compassion. And my intention is to transfer this transformation to my fellow human beings in need.
May I respond with a smile. May I respond from my heart. May I be filled often and from this full capacity, may I give with my vitality, in my humility, and from my whole-heartedness.
Let me be grounded, malleable, and permeable; like water, I seek to cleanse, soothe, and flow into the cracks that are frequently unseen, unnoticed; and be faithful to that which sustains and nourishes all parts of this greater whole. Let me be. Let me be WITH others. Thankful for this work and opportunity to be full and emptied and filled up again and again. A witness. A voice. Eyes and ears and heart. Mindful.
What Others are saying about Innovative Connections
At first, I needed to be convinced that the physician coaching would help me achieve my goals. I am a busy physician and I thought it would be difficult to fit on one more thing. The coaching offered me insights that I never would have come to otherwise and I have changed my interactions and relationships as a result. I am becoming a strong leader and grateful for the opportunity I was afforded.General Surgeon
