  • Celebrating Differences

      There are differences all around us: at work, in society, and even in our own family or circle of friends. We tend to focus on the differences a lot. Just look at the news and see how all of societal ills are being blamed on those who are different from us.   This weekend I have been catching up on my reading. I just read ...
  • Pulse Oximetry Tests for CCHD

    All babies in the U.S. have a newborn blood screen. Newborn screens are run by each state.  All states test for sickle cell, metabolic, endocrine disorders and nearly all screen for cystic fibrosis (CF).  Other states may choose to test for more disease processes in the newborn blood screens. Early diagnosis allows parents ...
  • Expand Your Network by Bridging Structural Holes

    Think about the people you know professionally; and most likely the majority are also laboratorians. That seems logical because you interact with colleagues at work. Maybe you belong to a local professional group or even a national membership organization. You might even know the majority of medical laboratorians in your city. That makes ...
  • It’s What We Do

    What we do is often complicated. For example, asking for help from coworkers sounds easy but isn’t. Clinical psychologist Ellen Hendrickson cites several reasons we don’t including fear of being a burden, fear of losing control, fear of owing a favor, fear of appearing weak, and fear of rejection. “Asking for help can turn the most self-assured, ...

  • The Benefits of Intergenerational Teams

      As the workforces ages we find many Baby Boomers (born 1946 to 1964) are retiring and the workforce is increasingly made up of younger individuals. The interesting thing about different generations working together is that values and even work ethics will vary. Oldsters (Boomers like myself) tend to assess younger workers as ...
  • Do You Work For a Bully?

    Remarkably, 54 million Americans have been bullied at some point in their careers, either peer to peer or from a boss. Writes author Sherri Gordon in About, “Many times people don’t even realize that their boss is bullying them. Instead, they falsely believe that their boss is just tough or pushes his workers to get results.” She lists verbal ...

  • 8 Tips to Improve Your Conversational Effectiveness

      I am sure you have all heard the lament, “He/she just does not know how to talk to people.” As team members laboratorians have to interact with each other and convey information not only to fellow laboratorians (peers and supervisors) but to their customers outside the lab as well.   Managers, especially brand new ...
  • Managing Cross-Disciplinary Teams is a Required Skill

      Those of us in healthcare have worked in silos for so long it has become the norm. In fact we justify it by saying due to the complexity of our body of knowledge, others just will not understand. Physically and psychologically we are more comfortable sharing space and projects with colleagues who are like ...
  • Are You A High Performer?

    “He’s a talker,” a colleague once described one of his employees to me. “I’m lucky if I can get five hours a day out of him.” Time is money, and any time spent wasted while at work is a productivity hit. Forbes reports that most employees surf the Web at work, for example, wasting time on Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, Twitter, or ...

  • Pushing Innovation

    The dictionary defines innovation as “something new or different introduced.” If your culture doesn’t encourage innovation but you have a great idea to improve your laboratory, what do you do? Employees learn to resist change because they are seldom empowered to initiate change themselves. Change is imposed from management as a “do it or else” ...
