Today we speak instead of Safeguarding because Safeguarding is a concept that reaches beyond protection, responding not only to problems which have occurred but incorporates the prevention of harm and the promotion of welfare.  Safeguarding also extends beyond children to include people of all ages and abilities who may have vulnerabilities which exposes them to a risk of abuse.”“We are, in Limerick Diocese, in a stronger place than we were. We have a range of services in place and very active training programmes. The greatest danger for us is that we might relax and believe that the worst is in some way behind us.  To take this view would be a profound error which would compound the historical failures.“Sometimes however, it seems as if all of us, all of society, can want to simplify this issue and move on.  To stay with an awareness of the pervasiveness of abuse and those dark parts of our human nature and the tendency to exploit weakness and vulnerability, may be almost too much.”Bishop Leahy said that from his own meetings with victims, he was critically aware of the impact of abuse on them and their families.“This can impact on all dimensions of their lives and there are no quick or simple solutions to what are sometimes their lifelong struggles.  I am also very conscious of the strain on people working in voluntary organisations as they struggle with what at times seem to be enormous limitations on resources.“I am aware of the professionalism and commitment of people in the statutory sector who are the first to acknowledge the difficulties which they struggle with every day.  I believe the presentations from each of the key Statutory Agencies which form the core of this conference will serve to illustrate their commitment to developing new and innovative practices and will provide all of us in the other sectors an opportunity to reflect on our collective challenges as a community.Addressed by senior representatives of organisations with an involvement in safeguarding in the Limerick area, including Chief Superintendent David Sheahan, who spoke about the level of interagency collaboration that is taking place, quoting extracts from the NBSCCCI audit of Limerick Diocese that acknowledged the unique engagement between Limerick Diocese, an Garda Siochana and HSE/ TUSLA.More news on social issues here Previous articleWalking/running guide highlights sights and sounds of LimerickNext articleWork on Killaloe by-pass to star next year Editor WhatsApp Email Funeral tribute for the Limerick Garda known as ‘Robocop’ center_img New Garda operation to ensure public compliance with COVID-19 travel restrictions RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter COVID-19 volunteerism is a glimpse of what the future can be for church and community Man arrested after buildings in Limerick city centre allegedly damaged by gunfire NewsSocietyBishop of Limerick wants no let up in safeguarding vulnerable peopleBy Editor – January 12, 2018 2047 TAGSAn Garda SíochánaBishop Brendan LeahyChief Superintendent David SheahacollaborationConferenceDiocese of Limerickeducational sectorsHSElimerickMary Immaculate CollegeNBSCCCIpredatorssafeguardingstatutoryTuslavoluntary Printlast_img read more

Value Is Something More Than Financial

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now Maybe you believe value is all about money. Maybe you believe that it’s all about financial metrics. But value is more complicated than that. It’s more than money.Trust: Nowhere does trust show up on a spreadsheet, but I promise you that it is the foundation of the first decision your prospective client makes. Trust is always a part of value.Confidence: It doesn’t matter how good your number are, if I don’t have the confidence in you that you can produce the outcomes, the numbers are meaningless. No matter the price, your dream client has to believe you will perform.Caring: The numbers don’t in any way indicate whether you really care enough to be there for your dream client when they need you. But that is part of the decision that they are making, and the numbers don’t speak to caring at all.Communication: How do you communicate? What do you communicate? How valuable is what you communicate? What, how, and when you communicate matters.Certainty: Your spreadsheet doesn’t provide the certainty that I am going to get what I pay for. It doesn’t address the other concerns I have outside of the financial concerns, and a spreadsheets doesn’t handle certainty very well.Cultural Fit: Are we going to work well together? can I see myself working with you for a long time? Am I going to look forward to your call, or would I rather have a root canal? If people don’t like you enough to want to work with you, the numbers won’t matter.When we have a great product, we expect the product to do all of the heavy lifting for us when it comes to selling. When we have what I call Level 3 Value, the ability to prove a return on investment, we expect the numbers to carry the sale for us. But selling effectively isn’t that easy. Don’t for a minute believe that part of the value you create isn’t about the relationship. And more often than not, that’s worth more than money.last_img read more
