    7 Ways to be Great

    1. Be gentle and kind

    2. Show respect to everyone you meet (whether you think they deserve it or not)

    3. Pay attention to the little things (often that makes you stand out from the crowd)

    4. Do everything wholeheartedly, with passion and love

    5. Be flexible, adaptable, and open to change

    6. Don’t complicate your life with lots of oughts, musts and shoulds

    7. Encourage other people to be all that they can be.

    Evan,

    I really like this list of ways to be great. I feel like it is basically a summary or the guidelines we use when trying to be our best selves while working on the Warmline. I think many of these same principles apply because we ought to not be judgemental, be respectful, open, gentle, kind, not complicated, listening to the little details of things, etc. when trying to provide our callers with the best quality services we possibly can. What do you think?

    I’ve only seen this list and I think its great. Sometimes, it is all about putting yourself in other people’s shoes. Being selfless. That goes a long way.
