Pastor Wayne Clip: 5%
Discussion: There is no such thing as 50%/50%. In our many roles as
Christians, healthcare administrators, mentors and leaders, we should
always strive to be 100% in everything we do… 100% Christian, 100%
leader, 100% Mentor, 100% Healthcare Administrator! As a Healthcare
Administrators, following federal regulations and the delivery of quality
patient care will not be your only focus. It is imperative that we also pay close
attention the morale and needs of the people we lead. We will discuss the 5
pillars of wellness (Emotional, physical, spiritual, social and family), human
intelligence, “emotional hijacking” and how it affects the people we lead.
How do we as leaders ensure that we support our staff in meeting these
needs? Do we remember to make time to meet our own needs? How are
people affected when one of their pillars collapse due to the high demands
and emotional stress of working in a healthcare setting? What differences
can we make in our leadership role to improve morale and well-being of the
people we lead?

Homework: Remember Pastor Wayne’s message? Basically 80% of what
you can do, anyone can do. 15% of what you do, anyone with the same skill
can do. However, only 5% of what you do, only you can do! Only you can be
a husband or wife to your spouse. Only you can be a parent to your child.
Only you can grow spiritually. In the end, only that 5% is what you will be
accountable for. There are 5 words that can destroy your future…
This week, make a list of your 5% you want to focus on and invest time to
nurture at least one pillar.
Find an article on how nurturing one of the pillars affects well-being. Be
ready to discuss what you chose to focus on in class the following week. We
will discuss how making time for our 5% relates to how we function as
leaders and mentors and how our pillars of well-being affect the way we
react to situations.
