We soared to new heights at the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation Gala last night in Bellingham. It was a perfect pre summer evening with temperatures in the low 70’s and a beautiful venue in a tented pavilion on the hospital grounds. Thank you to our friends the Curnows, Fritts, Larsons, and Matthews for joining us at our Management Services Northwest table.
It was a wonderful evening where over 44o friends of the Hospital gathered for great food and fellowship, and to celebrate those who give back wholeheartedly to their communities not as an obligation, but rather as a way of life. As our own renown Dr. Ian Thompson said, “I am, we are, so very blessed.”
Some of the fabulous people that attended the event with us!
The Corporate Theme we have been working on at Management Services Northwest this year is “One Team, One Focus”.
Many qualities contribute to being a successful, high functioning TEAM. I am proud as it was demonstrated throughout our start-up of a new Portland operation this month.
It was exciting to work side by side with everyone to strengthen our relationship with one of our long term clients. I observed our team members come together as ONE TEAM in several ways including:
- Cohesiveness: MSNW teammates traveling many miles outside their home territories to work as a cohesive team
- Commitment: Putting job titles aside and simply pitching in with one group effort
- Support: MSNW teammates finishing their own work and helping others
- Unity: Demonstrating a commitment to team excellence
A sign of a healthy team and strong organization is one where there is trust, high morale, and high productivity. This was very apparent among our start up team and I wish to thank everyone who was involved in this challenging yet rewarding experience.
Thank you to all of our MSNW team members for striving along with me this year to be One Team with One Focus – Creating an Unbreakable Relationship with our Customers.
