Extra (Extra, Extra, Extra, Extra) Ordinary

Writer, Director, and friend of The Experience Lab, Brad Montague, set a very clear Intention when he began his work with his younger brother-in-law Robby: to bring childlike wonder to the lives of all humans, no matter their age. The result of their Intention was a wildly popular YouTube video series called Kid President. Kid President shares uplifting and inspiring messages to remind all viewers that we can use the power of positive Intentions to leave the world better than we find it.

When we think of bettering the world, we often think of heroes. Watch this Kid President video as a reminder that heroes are made when ordinary people – like all of us – decide to be extraordinary (or extra, extra, extra ordinary).

Health care is a life-changing industry filled with heroes who literally save lives every day. When we don’t live each day with the Intention to see those we lead and those we serve as heroes, we risk critical players on our teams falling into the shadows.

How might we use Intention to guide the way we see our team members as heros in our organizations? How can we ensure that each team member realizes his or her true hero-ness?
