We have often been asking ourselves, “what is the essence of TRP?” One of the ways we try to answer this question is to listen to what others say when they experience TRP and what they do with it, both at work and at home. What is emphasized again and again are certain qualities. They are the things that when practiced, can allow us to be of service to almost anyone, anywhere. We’ve put together these qualities in what we call the Competencies of a TRP. Let us know what you think!
One of the qualities you’ll see is Being Inclusive, which can be expressed by listening to others with empathy. A great example of empathy was shared by our friends at the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation. While they did not create this video, they use it in training for healthcare professionals, and wow – it is meaningful. When you have five minutes to watch this powerful video on empathy, you won’t regret it.
May you and yours enjoy the blessings of the season!
