I have a professional relationship with Sally and have known her since February 2011, she is the Manager of the service I work in and I am a Team Senior. I am aware that she at times goes to do courses with Universal Medicine and she offers an esoteric meditation every week for those who wish to attend. More recently during our strategic planning day she organised for the team to be introduced to a simple body awareness workshop run by Victoria Carter, which was inspired by the work of Universal Medicine.
So Sally is a student of Universal Medicine and what does this mean for me on a daily basis?
She has a presence in the office that represents calmness amongst chaos, balance against unbalanced, inclusiveness, transparency, she is articulate and expresses honestly, she always has time for us, she understands the intenseness of our roles and is able to provide clear direction to staff that look to her for leadership, she is humble. It is the most supportive, caring and loving work place I have ever been in and this is credited to Sally’s leadership and her way of being in the office. She has integrity and respect for everyone she works with.
I would like to take this opportunity to say that Sally has set a very professional standard at our service, one based on her ability to be aware of how we are being with each other in the office and not purely focused on our outcomes. Sally’s style of management should be closely observed as it has allowed our team to develop with a sense of inclusiveness, open to sharing and learning from each other and has produced a team that appreciates what each other person brings.
So if Universal Medicine has played even the smallest part in supporting Sally to develop into who she is today, then she should definitely continue as a student of its presentations. Our work environment is an amazing place to come into every day and I love coming to work.
