Feedback from a LRN LAF LUV LIV Workshop

LRN LAF LUV LIV for LYF was the basis of a six-hour Staff Enrichment Day held earlier this year for a leading non-profit hospice in the Southeast of the United States.  The participants in the program were hospice staff from all areas of the organization, including physician assistant, registered nurse, CNA, social worker, and administrative staff that provide medical, emotional, and spiritual care to those with life-limiting and end-of-life illnesses.

The program's purpose was to introduce the participants to the concepts of LRN LAF LUV LIV for LYF and its benefits, provide an understanding of how to apply the concepts in one's individual life, and discuss opportunities for making it an integral part of the workplace.  The Executive Director and management initiated the request for the program after viewing the website.  They were fully onboard in discussing the concepts to help elevate both the individual and the organization.

The program was designed to be interactive with discussions, breakout sessions, and report outs.

Feedback on the Concepts

The participants provided feedback on the concepts that most resonated with them.  A few of the comments grouped by key Philosophy for LYF concepts are listed below.

Your Life's Core Values: Goodness, Open-mindedness, Gratefulness, Respectfulness, Courageousness
  • Goodness of character is the foundation!
  • Goodness resonates – ultimate value; “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”
  • I like GOODNESS being the foundation for all things
  • The core values are meaningful to me because my mother always taught me to do good to others, and good will be done to you. Having goodness as a foundation can manage your whole life.
  • Life’s core values resonate, encompasses what to strive for
  • Seeing goodness in others, small things mean the world to people
  • Like that the core values are based on GOODNESS

  • Never stop listening
  • Be humble
  • Like the life’s strategy of learn because I always want to improve something
  • Like LAF = enjoying yourself and uplifting others
  • Deeds are actions performed intentionally
  • These deeds are your deeds to perform, no one else can do them…you can help others…they can help you. It is your journey.
  • LAF – importance of enjoying and helping to uplift this in others; don’t like things too serious
  • I like that the concepts are interconnected. That leads to LRN LAF LUV LIV as a way of life.
Your Life's Mission: Grow True Wealth and Give True Worth
  • Realizing that true wealth comes from within
  • True wealth – I lost material things in a house fire but not my true wealth
  • Give true worth – saw goodness in others showed us true worth
  • Love the idea of life’s mission – breaks down receiving personal work and giving work
  • Life mission = grow and give true wealth/worth, good guide, thing to live by
  • We have a purpose to impact others’ lives
  • Growing true wealth and giving true worth – taking care of yourself will enable me to offer and bring goodness to others
Your Life's Vision: An Elevated Life
  • Pyramid for a life’s vision – speaks to having balance, elevation is possible without losing balance
  • Promote good, oppose evil, make the world a better place
  • I like elevated world because it gives hope for our ability to improve what can feel like a broken world
  • If we all do this we, all have a better life and an elevated world
  • Life vision = elevated life. Resonates for me as I have always been guided by being “visionary”

Overall Feedback on the Program and the Philosophy

Participants also provided overall feedback on LRN LAF LUV LIV for LYF and the Philosophy for LYF:

  • Positive way to live!
  • Encourages one to always be moving forward and not reflect negatively
  • Creative and so practical
  • Really well articulated–concepts that I think many people feel and believe in but have never articulated
  • Meaningful
  • I feel as if these concepts should be applied to your daily life as it helps to break down each category and get the true meaning
  • LUV it, we all need a reminder to be good to ourselves in order to be good to others
  • Gave me time to think about everyday life rather than just work day after day
  • Excellent concepts and helped to put my life into perspective

The feedback from this Staff Enrichment Day was inspirational and is being used to prepare additional short and long programs for organizations and other groups that want to implement and benefit from the philosophy's concepts.
