Greetings! I hope this holiday season finds you in good spirits despite the heavy snow and bitter cold! Some good things are happening in MACPO that I wanted to highlight:
These are challenging times in corrections, yet opportunities for improvement of services to our clients, and an opportunity to work together. While the One DOC Plan is important, we should still be operating under the One Corrections Plan that I wrote about in my initial MACPOST. Invite each other to meetings, have coffee with someone outside of your delivery system, meet with your local legislators, etc. Be mindful that we are supposed to be working hard to assist our clients to transform their lives. Providing a good example and modeling is important for professionals along the way.
