As we wrap up 2023, we reflect on months past and what lies ahead with our community’s journey. If you recall, our Personal and Professional Development Coach, Michael “Buck” Buckley. Challenged us to pick a “Word of the Year” in January 2023.
Buck asked us to look inward and consider what we need more of or what might improve our lives. The time has come to revisit our Word of the Year for 2023 and explore its impact on Vitalia Strongsville. Whether you’ve been an active member or are just joining us, this retrospective journey invites us all to celebrate the past year.
Our community Word of the Year for 2023 was ‘responsibility.’ We achieved many successes throughout the year, living in line with our word and improving the community.
Strongsville is closing out another successful year. I believe our continued success stems from our use of the word of the year. Our teams focused on being responsible and accountable. Throughout the year, these actions developed a strong team. The year 2023 was busy! It was a year of opening the clubhouse for the Villas and maintaining 95% occupancy in the Villas and Main building.
I believe we lived out the word. The team took responsibility for their actions as well as their work. I look forward to continued team growth and giving our residents the best in 2024.
As we bid farewell to 2023, we will carry forward the essence of our Word of the Year into 2024. The successes and strides of our community, the embodiment of our chosen word in our collective actions, are not just markers in time but a testament to the strength of this community.
I look forward to catching our 2024 Word of the Year blog soon!
