Hawaii Dental Service ~ Team Building Blessing

It never hurts to get a little positive reinforcement to keep your team on a good track.

OBJECTIVE: Energize Staff and Grow Positive Momentum.

SOLUTION: Good Juju boosters keep spirits up and momentum positive.

The new year was a time for a fresh start at Hawaii Dental Service (HDS).
HDS welcomed its new Executive Director and united the HDS staff with a traditional Hawaiian blessing.
The ceremony is simple yet profound. In less than 2 hours, Kahu Silva help the HDS team pull together to clear out the old and re-energize.

As part of the blessing, Kahu offered mana’o (pearls of wisdom) that laid the foundation for a new team paradigm and working dynamic. Kahu addressed the management and staff of HDS as a “working family”.
He told the story of how ancient Hawaiians survived and thrived in the islands. And how working together, Hawaiian ohana (family) required the exchange of recognition, help and a genuine caring for each other. Throughout the event, he inspired HDS to adopt these ancient Hawaiian traditions:

1.     ‘Ike Aku, ‘Ike mai (Recognize & Be Recognized)

2.      Kōkua Aku, Kōkua Mai (Help & Be Helped)

3.     Aloha Aku, Aloha Mai (Love that is Given is Love that Returns)

With each of these concepts came a story, part entertainment and uniquely relevant to the members present. The ceremony concluded with HDS staff members exchanging their aloha with each other and sharing best wishes for a successful and happy new year.
