2024 at The Boulevard: Embracing ‘Action’ as the Word of the Year

Category: Senior Living

Author: Mindy Kemp, Executive Director

At the beginning of each year, Michael Buckley, Arrow’s personal and professional development coach and “The Chief Feelings Officer,” asks each team member to pick a “Word of the Year.”

To help individuals come up with a word, he offers questions like:

What does your life need more of right now?

And my life will be improved if I have more of what?

Michael reminds us that sometimes, we need more focus. Then, other times, it’s more compassion, and at times, we need more fun! In past years, team members have chosen words such as clarity, confidence, intentional, commitment, consideration, and receptiveness.

This year, team members are actively selecting a Word of the Year for themselves and collaborating to create a word for their community. Picking a personal word and community word is a commitment to doing work on themselves and the “we” and “us” work they want to accomplish as a community.

The Boulevard Senior Living – St. Peters word of the year is action. 

This word is significant because we are opening a new community and can put all the great values and processes of Arrow into action from day one.

By setting an intention for the year, we’re shaping our community for success. It creates a common goal for us to work towards as a team and show our best version every day. We will incorporate the word into the community’s daily operations by consistently learning, educating, creating moments, and growing the community.

The most significant goals of the year for our community are to grow a community that has:

  • The reputation of a great place to live and work
  • Communicate our business plan with department heads so they can educate and grow their teams
  • Will create unforgettable moments for residents and staff

Alignment of these will help us naturally reach a complete census quickly.

The chosen Word of the Year should inspire the team. If it doesn’t, it means they selected the wrong word. Hold yourself and others accountable throughout the year. Engage with team members about their Word of the Year and keep it as a frequent topic of discussion in your community. Monitor your achievements using your 2024 Word of the Year, and we eagerly anticipate celebrating them with you!
