Raise your standards, raise your results

Everything you need to know about setting & achieving high standards!

Think of your workplace and the things it hopes to achieve such as being a great place to work and delivering a high quality and very satisfying patient experience. While great systems, technology, and processes are necessary to achieve these outcomes, it is the PEOPLE . . . . operating in accordance to high standards that is the "secret weapon" in the very best healthcare organizations.

Standards set the bar for everyone. What standards do we all strive for in how we behave and perform. High standards, high results. Low (or no) standards, low results.

When standards are high, what then tends to happen is that people begin to expect more of themselves in every situation. As a result, behavior and performance changes in good ways, which subsequently impacts the results.

Because standards are reflected in so many ways, they are, therefore, always “on show” for the public. When outsiders walk into your place of work, it is likely easy for them to tell if this is an organization with high standards. You likely notice it when you walk into other businesses as well.

This CapstoneEDU learning module is designed to support organizations as they learn the tactics for setting standards . . . and then "bringing them alive" to elevate behavior, performance and results!
