Menders: Lead from Within with Dr. Nicola De Paul
28. Take personal responsibility without burning out with Erin Gibb
Show Notes

Act responsibly without taking on others' responsibility. 

Erin Gibb shares her philosophy of caring for and nourishing her healthcare organization as a living organism, before turning her attention to the well-being of the clinicians working in her organization, and, finally, to the well-being of the people who receive care in her clinic. While her approach feels counterintuitive to many, focusing on organizational well-being has had far-reaching impacts and has created waves of healing and sustainability throughout her community. 

Her early experiences working with First Nations people in a community with limited mental health resources taught her the principle of interdependence and the importance of focusing on organizational and clinician healing and wellness. When the organization heals itself, the people being cared for by the organization are empowered to heal the community. 

Erin shares how she has created a thriving clinical community based on the core value of freedom. Now she coaches her clinicians to connect with the essential elements of their “being” and their most profound dreams and desires. Not only is this transformative for the people working as clinicians, but the people they are serving can also experience greater levels of healing, and freedom, and learn to become genuinely self-honored. 

Listen to find out: 

  • What lessons Erin learned about culturally sensitive care while working with First Nations people in Northwestern Canada. 
  • Why Erin prioritizes the well-being of her organization above client outcomes.
  • And why she believes that taking responsibility and owning our power create a revolution within the healthcare system!

My favorite quotable moment from this episode!

“Mental health revolution comes from therapists, caregivers, healthcare providers, putting their needs first, as that will help everyone.”
