Unity in Action: ‘Collaboration’ – Vitalia Strongsville’s Word of the Year for 2024

Category: Senior Living

Author: Danielle Kencson, Executive Director

At the beginning of each year, Michael Buckley, Arrow’s personal and professional development coach and “The Chief Feelings Officer,” asks each team member to pick a “Word of the Year.”

To help individuals come up with a word, he offers questions like:

What does your life need more of right now?

And my life will be improved if I have more of what?

Michael reminds us that sometimes, we need more focus. Then, other times, it’s more compassion, and at times, we need more fun! In past years, team members have chosen words such as clarity, confidence, intentional, commitment, consideration, and receptiveness.

This year, team members are actively selecting a Word of the Year for themselves and collaborating to create a word for their community. Picking a personal word and community word is a commitment to doing work on themselves and the “we” and “us” work they want to accomplish as a community.

The Vitalia Strongsville word of the year is collaboration.

This word is significant because it shows cohesiveness as a team, gelling together for a stronger bond. By setting an intention for the year, we’re shaping our community for success. It allows the team to align our goals as one.

We will incorporate the word into the community’s daily operations by reinforcing that we are one team. We all have different responsibilities; however, at the end of the day, we all must work together to keep everything moving forward.

The biggest goals of the year for our community are to grow teamwork, reduce turnover, and show appreciation. 2024 will be our best year yet!

The chosen Word of the Year should inspire the team. If it doesn’t, it means they selected the wrong word. Hold yourself and others accountable throughout the year. Engage with team members about their Word of the Year and keep it as a frequent topic of discussion in your community. Monitor your achievements using your 2024 Word of the Year, and we eagerly anticipate celebrating them with you!
