What’s The Secret Of A Great Workplace?
Learning the Do’s and the and Don’ts of Showing Appreciation in the Workplace
And What Employees Want Most.
While not every workplace may be as extreme as depicted in any given episode of The Office – every place of business in America is likely in need of some sort of a makeover. And while appreciation is everywhere – from statues erected of people who impacted our world, to buildings and parks named after community leaders – we do not see enough appreciation in the one place where it is needed most: at work. A recent study proves that appreciation and recognition is the number one thing employees say their managers could do to inspire great work.

Our second guest is Chief of Cardiology Clyde Yancy, MD, MSc, he discusses the latest heart research, including the digital future of Heart Disease, what you and your family need to know about hypertension and the best (and easiest) ways to prevent heart disease.
Heart disease remains the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. However, you can take steps to halt its progress. The key is to know your risk factors and modify the ones you can. This can both lengthen and improve the quality of your life. Among the many different kinds of heart disease, millions of Americans are living with “heart failure” or heart muscle disorder—the inability of the heart to provide adequate blood supply and oxygen to the body. The goal of the highly skilled team of cardiologists and cardiac surgeons at the Center for Heart Failure at The Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute at Northwestern Memorial Hospital is to provide progressive strategies to diagnose, treat and stabilize heart failure, while improving your overall quality of life. The clinical team at Northwestern Medicine’s Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute works with referring physicians to give patients with heart failure the best outcomes possible—even those patients with unique cases.
