- Staff: The people who work in your office are the heart and blood of your operation. They are also what humanizes your brand and inspire others to follow. Dr. Preston Maring is a Kaiser Permanente physician who started one of the first hospital-based farmers markets in 2003 and is personally responsible for opening 35 Farmers’ Markets at Kaiser Permanente facilities in five states. Currently, the markets offer fresh fruits and vegetables to 3-million Kaiser Permanente customers and 65,000 employees, as well as the communities served by each of the medical facilities. Maring is an example of not only an inspirational leader but a great story as well. His project provides an experiential opportunity for patients and staff to eat healthier and be climate friendly by eating locally and organic.
- Community events or causes: Another opportunity to cultivate your relationship with your staff, patients, and community is to identify common and shared interests and connect with them through relevant storytelling. Participating in a community event provides you a great opportunity to tell stories and likewise listen to stories from others in the process.
- Inspiring people you meet: As you continue your work in climate for health, you will most likely meet other people like yourself, leaders or otherwise who share your vision for a healthier world. Sharing their stories will only serve as a model and inspiration for others to follow suit.
