News from Region One Director Feb 2018 ASPAN Regional Director, Region One By Shay Glevy, BSN, RN, CPAN, CAPA ASPAN Region 1 Director While I am writing this the Olympics just happened, and I can’t help but think of individuals. In my last update I spoke of coaches and how important it is to have them to keep us on track, give us direction and help us focus. While watching the Olympics I was reminded that we do need a team and a coach, but it is up to the individual to make it happen. This takes accountability to one’s self. ”Accountability is a key ingredient in any success, but it seems to be the one that we have the most difficulty with. When we accept accountability we put ourselves in a position where we can make the necessary changes to be successful, whereas when we look to blame, it disempowers us. The more accountable we can be, the more accountable our team will become and the more success we can achieve.” (https://www.inc.com/gordon-tredgold/49-quotes-that-will-help-you-avoid-the-blame-game.html) The athletes in the Olympics have accountability to themselves and look towards the goal. This is what got them there. When we have accountability we get it done. Our components are successful when we have accountability to see what the goal is. I have seen that accountability as your component board works to put together amazing educational offerings.
