Erin Gibb, a Fulfillment Coach for therapists and the host of Therapist Expanded, joined me for Menders episode 28. Erin is creating a revolution within the sphere of mental health treatment! In this episode, Erin shares her philosophy of caring for and nourishing her healthcare organization as a living organism, before turning her attention to the well-being of the clinicians working in her organization, and then finally to the well-being of the people who receive care in her clinic. She shares that while her approach feels counterintuitive to many, focusing on organizational well-being has had far-reaching impacts and has created waves of healing and sustainability throughout her community. Her early experiences working with First Nations people in a community with limited mental health resources have taught her to understand the principle of interdependence and the importance of focusing on organizational and clinician healing and wellness. When the organization heals itself, the people being cared for by the organization are empowered to heal the community. Erin shares how she has created a thriving clinical community based on the core value of freedom. Now she coaches her clinicians to connect with the essential elements of their “being” and their deepest dreams and desires. Not only is this transformative for the people working as clinicians, but the people they are serving are also able to experience greater levels of healing, and freedom, and learn to become truly self-honoring. Listen to find out: What lessons Erin learned about culturally sensitive care while working with First Nations people in Northwestern Canada. Why Erin prioritizes the well-being of her organization above client outcomes.And why she believes that taking responsibility and owning our power create a revolution within the healthcare system!My favorite quotable moment from this episode!“Mental health revolution comes from therapists, caregivers, healthcare providers, putting their needs first, as that will actually help everyone.” Erin Gibb (Menders, episode 28)Find Erin at Therapist Expanded Want to work with me? If you’re curious to learn more or you know that you would like expert consultation and transformational coaching for your leadership team, then I would love to talk with you.

For Menders episode 27, I had the privilege to sit down and talk with Ramses Rodriguez, an anxiety master coach, who shared how we can learn to use anxiety as a tool when we allow ourselves to be 100% honest about how it’s serving us in our lives. In this episode, Ramses shares his journey from nurse’s assistant to master coach and the life lessons he’s learned along the way. Ramses combines evidence-based practices with holistic healing and coaching strategies to help high-performing individuals experience freedom from panic.In healthcare, particularly high-pressure leadership roles, we don’t always cut ourselves slack, take breaks, or set necessary boundaries. And as Ramses so clearly articulates, many of us experience overwhelming anxiety (or panic) that begins to dictate our actions and limit our ability to perform at a high level or to fully live the lives we want to enjoy. As Ramses shares, anxiety is a red flag that is hard to miss and easy to respect and may just give us an easy out when we’re starting to violate our boundaries or values. But we can learn to use anxiety as a tool as we let go of its indirect benefits and begin to address our needs directly. Listen to find out: How Ramses has learned to “hack” his anxiety triggers by creating systems that help him set sustainable boundaries. Why taking the time to acknowledge the role anxiety plays in our lives can have a powerful healing impact.And what strategies boost personal productivity without sacrificing well-being!My favorite quotable moment from this episode!“I can set a boundary easily if my default physiological symptom is a boundary…and if [anxiety] were a tool, how do we leverage that? …It’s helping me fulfill a need for a boundary.”“Think of the high performer. We need an out, this is an easy way where our body says, ‘No more.’”Ramses Rodriguez (Menders, episode 27)Additional Resources: ABOUT RAMSESOnce plagued by panic attacks himself, Ramses Rodriguez now helps individuals suffering from panic and anxiety with science-based and holistic modalities. Ramses holds a Master of Science degree in Developmental Genetics and combines science theory and alternative therapies to help people become panic-free while keeping the career of their dreams.Ramses has written two books in the genre of anxiety relief. In his first book Stop Pressing Your Own Panic Button, Ramses details the process he leads professionals through to achieve lasting relief from Panic Attacks. In his second book, The End of Writer's block, Ramses addresses the most effective tools for overcoming performance anxiety.He foDownload your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

For Menders episode 26, I had the opportunity to explore values-based innovation and team leadership with Dr. Dan Drozd, the Chief Medical Officer of Picnic Health. In this episode, Dan shares his non-linear career journey from English major to software engineer, infectious disease physician, and now to CMO. And he shares the leadership lessons he’s learned along the way through coaching, self-reflection, and openness to feedback from his team. As a result of this intentionality, Dan has developed a framework for team leadership that maximizes shared decision-making and values-based empowerment. We explore how leading with values can impact both the leader and the team and creates space for everyone to operate at their highest level. Dan also reflects on some challenges of creating a sustainable work culture in a virtual environment. And, he shares some of the innovative strategies that he and Picnic Health have tried to promote lasting relationships, that allows him to connect with his team and promote relationships between team members while making an effort to create a meaningful and connected workplace. Listen to find out: How his personal family history influenced his commitment to healthcare.Why taking the time to have deeply personal conversations with our employees is a critical team leadership skill in the virtual world.And what strategies he recommends to flatten the hierarchy and promote values-based decision-making at all levels of a healthcare organization!I hope this conversation inspires you to consider your values and how you communicate what matters to you and your organization to your healthcare team. When our “why” is shared, we have the capacity to connect and create meaningful innovation.My favorite quotable moment from this episode!“I think what is important is modeling being vulnerable and real with people…that gives other members of the team impetus and space to do that as well…I want people to make mistakes, if we’re not screwing things up we’re probably not making a lot of progress, probably not taking enough risks.” Dr. Dan Drozd (Menders, episode 26)Additional Resources: Picnic HealthWhen they win you winDownload your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

I recently had the opportunity to sit down and speak with Jennifer O’Brien. It was a pleasure and a personally moving experience for me. I hope you enjoy listening!After spending her career in healthcare as a changemaker and traveling executive, Jennifer became a family caregiver to her late husband Bob, a palliative care physician. Now Jennifer is using her experiences on both sides of the healthcare experience to advocate for greater awareness of the tremendous lift family caregivers make when caring for their loved ones. Jennifer advocates for greater inclusivity and respect for family caregivers as they play a clinician-extending role on our healthcare teams. She even wrote a position description to help us all better understand the full extent of what family caregivers do. It’s worth a read! And perhaps most importantly, Jennifer reminds us that as clinicians we are also human and caregivers for our aging parents, ill spouses, and injured children. Jennifer draws on her intimate experience of palliative care to reflect on the power of reimagining teamwork from the palliative care perspective across healthcare disciplines. And she brings us back to the core values of the healing profession: To care for the ill. To deliver babies. And to comfort the dying. Listen to find out: How focusing on her self-care through art led her to unexpectedly publish a book, the Hospice doctor’s widow.Why reimagining teamwork has the power to breathe new life into day-to-day clinical interactions.And how recommitting to our core values may just transform healthcare!I hope this conversation inspires you to take the time to dig deep, connect with your values and elevate the members of our healthcare community who are less visible.My favorite quotable moment from this episode!“I wished that on my computer screen every morning, a little dashboard would pop up that would say, “we cared for this many patients yesterday, we delivered this many babies, and we comforted this many dying people.” Jennifer O’Brien (Menders, episode 25)Additional Resources: You can find Jennifer O’Brien at The Hospice Doctor’s Widow Family Caregiver Position DescriptionDownload your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

For Menders episode 24, I had the opportunity to chat with Jenn Cochran, a Nurse Coach and the founder of Happy Whole Life. Jenn shared some of the lessons she’s learned from her years as a nurse and how she’s grown past some of the less helpful elements of the self-sacrificing nursing culture as she’s learned to care for her whole self. Jenn shares her transformation experience from that “angry at the system nurse” to a nurse who is refreshed daily and delighted to do her job. And she attributes this transformation to boundary setting. Jenn’s story illustrates the power that we have to create transformation, even when we are working in challenging conditions and imperfect organizations.And she highlights the power leaders have to care for their employees simply by taking the time to honor and value themselves. We can all model self-honoring actions for those around us. Our patients. Our employees. Our families.  Listen to find out: ·       How focusing on her self-care was initially received by her nursing colleagues.·       Why focusing on nurses’ well-being is beneficial for the bottom line of healthcare organizations.·       And the simple strategies leaders can use to demonstrate that they value their employees!I hope this conversation inspires you to take the time to value yourself and to consider what values your behaviors are modeling for those you care about.Additional Resources: You can find Jenn Cochran at Happy Whole Life and on Tiktok, Instagram, and Facebook Download your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

For Menders episode 23, I had the opportunity to sit down with Daniel Hoang, a man of many talents who was willing to do a deep dive on change management, parenting, self-care, and how we can bring love into healthcare relationships to promote change on a human scale.  Daniel spent much of his career as a change management consultant working for healthcare organizations and corporations. Then 2020 hit. The COVID pandemic stopped his “go-go” lifestyle in its tracks and led him to grapple with the reality of his trauma history as the child of Vietnamese boat people. This led him on a healing journey that eventually caused him to rethink everything, including his approach to change management. As he shares in this episode, Daniel used I’m sure I say this too often, but my conversation with Daniel is one of my all-time favorites, and I think you will find it meaningful too! If you’ve ever found yourself struggling as a person and a parent, you will appreciate this conversation. Listen to find out: ·       How focusing on his own needs and calming himself helps him to parent more effectively.·       Why he sees every individual as having the power to create transformation within our organizations. ·       And the simple strategies leaders can use to engage their employees in typically tedious meetings deeply!I hope this conversation inspires you to take the time to focus on healing yourself and to engage thoughtfully with your daily life. We could all use a little extra grace and some breathing room. My favorite quotable moment from this episode!“We’re burning out our leaders today….”“Leaders want to just keep working harder at it, and that’s never the answer because there will always be another thing that gets layered on top…Pause, create space, and create resilience in that leadership team. And then step back and solve this problem.” - Daniel Hoang (Menders, episode 23)Download your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

For Menders’ episode 22, I had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Khara Jefferson, a functional wellness consultant and the owner of KAJ Wellness. I found this conversation fun and joyful, and I hope you feel the same way!Khara brought her functional medicine perspective and her history as an emergency medicine practitioner to our conversation. She shared her current approach to helping people move towards gut health, or as she says, to go from “toilet hell to feeling well.” Khara shared that changing how she interacts with patients has allowed her to get more joy out of her clinical work and keep herself sustainable. And finally, we explored how she might take a functional medicine approach to examine the root causes of distress in our healthcare system. The excellent news is that Khara believes we can create transformation, but it will involve all of us fully committing to the process. Listen to find out: ·         How her own experience with a chronic illness impacted her journey into the field of medicine.·         Why she sees helping our patients understand the “how” of change as more crucial than telling them “what” they need to change. ·         And why she believes everyone should be equipped with skills to conduct a rapid quality improvement project. I hope this conversation inspires you to take care of yourself and take the time to find the root cause of distress on your team or in your system. My favorite quotable moment from this episode!“When a whole bunch of people are doing a whole bunch of the same things, it’s a ripple effect…and if you start by putting a whole bunch of little bitty things into place, eventually those little things become big things, and those big things will become huge things. That’s how we improve healthcare, but it can’t be just me. And it can’t be just you. It has to be a whole bunch of like-minded people.” Dr. Khara Jefferson (Menders, episode 22)Additional Resources:Find Dr. Khara Jefferson at https://www.kajwellness.com/     Download your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

Menders episode 21 is out now, and it is a treat! I sat down with Adele Wang, and while we had intended to think through the mind-body impacts of stress and burnout, we found ourselves deep in conversation about calling and what nourishes us as humans and healers. I loved this conversation and am still reverberating with Adele’s ideas. Adele shared how she works with healthcare providers to help them move from what they know to what they feel by working with them to reconnect with their body’s deep knowing. Her work allows clinicians at risk of burnout to reconnect with themselves. And from this place of self-honoring, they have a choice about how to re-engage with their work as a healer, whether that is in the traditional system or outside it. Listen to find out: ·         How her work in a small intimate integrative health clinic taught her to see that healthcare can be provided differently.·         Why we both see community as the secret for both patients and clinicians. ·         And how she draws on what gives her clients pleasure in their non-work lives to help reinvigorate their connection to their calling as healers. I hope this conversation inspires you to take some time to consider what you enjoy that has nothing to do with healthcare. Take some time to answer this question, and then reconnect with your work when you’re ready. My favorite quotable moments from this episode!“The missing element: you have no community and neither do your patients…”Adele Wang (Menders, episode 21)“It’s not just one person going to see the patient, it’s a team. It’s a community channeled through you.”Adele Wang (Menders, episode 21)Additional Resources:Find Adele Wang here - https://adelewang.lpages.co/introduction-to-spark-your-feminine-presence/ And check out her podcast, All things human. Download your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

Menders episode 20 is gracing the airwaves! In this episode, Dr. Liz Dykhouse highlights the differences between wellness and well-being. She shares how she has integrated well-being into the core curriculum of her family medicine residency. And she provides a framework for how well-being naturally leads to systemic advocacy in healthcare. Liz and I reflect on strategies that allow clinical supervisors and healthcare leaders to foster a culture of safety in which learners become comfortable acknowledging their personal challenges and reaching out to their supervisors and community for support. Listen to find out: ·         Why (& when) she trains her residents to move away from a problem-solving approach!·         Why she believes that focusing on well-being now will create a sustainable foundation for long-term sustainability within our healthcare system. ·         And how she balances her own workload to maximize meaning and promote her personal sustainability in healthcare and medical education. Here are a couple of my favorite quotable moments from this episode: “We have to live within the system to promote change.” -          Dr. Liz Dykhouse (Menders, episode 20)“I felt better today but that didn’t solve the problems…I want [residents] to feel empowered to advocate for change…I also want them to know how to care for themselves individually!”-          Dr. Liz Dykhouse (Menders, episode 20)“The thing that I have found most helpful working within the system myself and working collaboratively with leaders in a variety of different settings within the traditional system is the willingness of leaders to have the [tough] conversation."-          Me! (Dr. Nicola De Paul)I hope this episode inspires you to consider what you can do to care for yourself in this moment and to take one tiny action to promote systemic transformation. Additional Resources: Healthcare providers’ perceived support from their organization is associated with lower burnout and anxiety amid the COVID-19 pandemic - Reitz (2021) -From PLOS ONE: Download your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

In this episode of Menders,  Dr. Julia Mackaronis, a licensed clinical psychologist and the lead mental health clinician for the Quinault Indian Nation, shares her experiences learning to acknowledge the reality of the blind spots inherent within her cultural frame as a white Western psychologist. We explore the process of learning to be in a good relationship with each other as we foster a community of caring. And, Julia shares how she has learned to understand the concept of interdependence while working within her local indigenous community and her global community. Listen to find out:How she has learned to value welcoming as a critical step in the healing process!How she is currently working to practice cultural humility, recognize and respond to her internalized racism and the ongoing harm of settler colonialism, and stay focused on relationship-building.And why she believes it is time for clinicians to focus on self-care (but not for the sake of being a more efficient or resilient clinician)!This episode will get you wondering about your own cultural assumptions and thinking about how caring for yourself might be a radical act of compassion for our planet. It’s time to recognize the beauty and freedom of our interdependence.

Dr. Cindy Rubin is a pediatrician and breastfeeding medicine specialist who decided to transition out of the healthcare system and chart her own path.In Menders episode 18, Dr. Cindy Rubin shares her story of taking a leap of faith from the traditional healthcare system into her own practice as a direct primary care pediatrician. For Cindy, making this transition allowed her to create a fulfilling work life where she is able to structure her patient interactions so that she has plenty of time for healing interactions with her patients and still makes it home for dinner every night. And perhaps most important of all, taking this leap of faith has challenged her to take full ownership of her value as a human being in a healing profession. Listen to find out: How she went from missing dinner and bedtime with her family every night to creating a flexible schedule that allows her to attend her children’s school lunches and baseball games!How she used a gutsy publication to connect with a community of like-minded physicians who applauded her as she brought light to the challenges in her health system! Why you need to connect with a community of like-minded clinicians and a simple way to find people who will champion your worth in your health system!Here are some of my favorite quotable moments from this episode: “It was manageable and suddenly zero to 60, it was like I was exactly where I had been and I realized I can’t do this. I’d gotten a taste of what it could be like to be able to see fewer patients a day” -          Dr. Cindy Rubin “Something shifts when people take on a systemic level of responsibility and take on the system’s values. It’s important to me to question that….if we change our values and commit to changing our values, I believe things can happen differently!”-          Me!

Dr. Steve Hunt is a primary care physician board certified in environmental and occupational medicine.In this episode of Menders, we explore the impacts of toxic environments on the well-being of physicians and healthcare systems as complex living organisms. When we see teams and elements of our institutions crumbling, we can be sure that something unhealthy is happening. As Steve so aptly points out, we're only as healthy as the team doing the worst! Acknowledging our toxic environments is a first step that allows us to turn toward the challenging but rewarding work of community building and repair. Refocusing on human connection in healthcare may be the medicine we need to heal. I hope that you take the time to reflect on one step that you as an individual can take to respond to the needs of yourself, your colleagues, and your organization. Cultural transformation starts with our small actions to care for each other.  And as always, thank you for listening!Additional Resources:David Abram - The spell of the sensuoushttps://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/319/the-spell-of-the-sensuous-by-david-abram/Ernest Becker - The structure of evil - https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/1520-6696%28196901%295%3A1%3C92%3A%3AAID-JHBS2300050116%3E3.0.CO%3B2-NRobert Sapolsky - Why Zebras don't get ulcers - https://us.macmillan.com/books/9780805073690/whyzebrasdontgetulcersDownload your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

Aaron Katz is a Principal Lecturer Emeritus at the University of Washington’s School of Public Health. As Aaron shares in this episode, his brain naturally thinks at the 30,000-foot public policy level. I am thrilled to take this step back to look at the world of healthcare and consider how the daily lives of clinicians are impacted by local, state, and national policy decisions. We consider the impacts these pressures have on daily clinical life, ranging from the length of patient appointments all the way to the loss of federal protection for abortion rights. As we consider these tough challenges, Aaron highlights the simple actions each of us can take to begin impacting local and national policy. We spend time reflecting on the underlying values of our healthcare system. And we consider the challenges and benefits of some alternative health systems in our global community. I hope that you take the time to reflect on one step that you as an individual can take to engage with health policy at the hyper-local or national level. And as always, thank you for listening!Additional Resources:Thomas Rice, a health economist at UCLA - Health Economics Reconsidered - https://www.ache.org/learning-center/publications/books/2289 Also by Thomas Rice, Health Insurance Systems: An International Comparison - https://www.elsevier.com/books/health-insurance-systems/rice/978-0-12-816072-5 Download your free guide 5-Steps to Direct & Kind Communication at Mending Health Systems (https://www.mendinghealthsystems.com/) to get started creating cultural transformation for your healthcare team today! And if you loved today's episode, please take a moment to leave a review, subscribe to the show, and share this episode with a friend! Want to work with me?

Dr. Mari Yamamoto is a clinical psychologist and assistant professor in a Family Medicine Residency at a large academic medical center.  In this episode, she shares some challenges of navigating full-time roles as a clinician, parent, and partner. She shares how her values guide her daily decision-making and prompt her to set boundaries to protect her most important priorities. She also reflects on some of the systemic supports that have made it possible for her to find work-life flexibility in COVID times. And we explore some of the challenges that make it difficult for healthcare systems to provide maximum flexibility. What might healthcare look like if we recreated our systems to allow clinicians working in the system to thrive? It is time that we sat down and asked ourselves this critical question. What small step could your organization take towards creating a nurturing and nourishing environment for everyone involved?
