Georgina and Tina Murray met to talk about the “Side by Side” training that they have recently been trained to facilitate.
Georgina has chosen to deliver medication training.
Initially Georgina explained that she had chosen this topic because it is really important to her. However as the conversation progressed Georgina revealed that what was really important to her was that:
- She is an expert
- She wants to be able to help people
- She wants people, especially her family, to be proud of her
This was a really emotional conversation and we were touched by what Georgina shared with us.
The importance of her family having pride in what she does was striking along with her strength of feeling for them. It reinforces both the importance of recognising, celebrating and supporting people’s skills and the importance of people’s relationships with their families.
One way to both celebrate someone’s skills and for people to express their admiration or pride for someone is to share what others Like and Admire about the person.
