V29: Setting the Stage – Tools and Props to Bring New Ideas to Life

As we continue to explore the principle of Staging, let’s shine a light  on the  fundamental concept of “onstage/offstage” – the understanding that whenever we are in front of or in earshot of patients or guests we are in fact “onstage.” We are performing our caring art for others. Staging is about planning for all that shows up in the spotlight—preparing our space, our Intention, and ourselves for positive interactions. Taking a few moments to consider how we will present ourselves and our environment can make a tremendous impact on the Experience we create.

 With so much of our caring time taking place “onstage” it is important to make room for “offstage.” Take time to step out of the spotlight and recharge, reflect, and rejuvenate.
