“Learning How to Grieve As An Entrepreneur” is a feature in the April/May WBENC President’s Report . Unfortunately, Kittie had some recent experiences she utilized as learning tools that she hopes other entrepreneurs can learn from to prepare for the inevitable grief everyone must face at some point.
“Make the Essential What Gets Done”, written by Kittie W. Watson and Becky Ripley, was published in the Fort Jackson Journal’s May 2017 issue.
Are the things you are checking off your task list actually priorities? Are they essential to your work? When everything is a priority, actually nothing is a priority. Kittie and Becky address actions you can take to clarify and act on priorities.
“Effective Listening: Five Lessons from the Best”, written by our President and Founder, Kittie W. Watson, Ph.D., was published in the Journal of Christian Nursing’s July/September 2017 issue.
For many nurses, especially when workloads are high, it can be difficult to listen carefully to patients. Federally mandated Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys that help determine insurance reimbursement are asking patients how carefully their nurses listened. For Christian nurses, effective listening demonstrates the compassion, understanding, and care modeled by Jesus. An exploration of Jesus’ responses reveals five ways Christ effectively listened to people that can guide nurses.

ART at Work: Collaborate + Innovate
Adapt â— Respond â— Transform
December 2014 -The Innolect Community experimented with Innolect’s latest Excursion Learning event, Art at Work. Collaboration requires team members to look beyond themselves and work toward a common goal. Since many “artists” or team members find it difficult to invite others into their creations, art provides the ultimate test for putting egos asidefor the greater good. In most cases, art is an individual process that rarely welcomes the inclusion of others who may not share the same artistic vision. Yet, for team members who need to gain the most from working collaboratively, creating art collaboratively offers a powerful learning experience. Our process demonstrates the benefits of genuine collaboration when the outcome truly belongs to everyone on the team. Teams learn to communicate, collaborate and adapt to change in a dynamic, energizing environment.
