I like to be in my bubble. As a pharmacy clerk, I can talk one-on-one to patients. But I hate talking to crowds. When I signed up to be a champion for the Mail Order Pharmacy Outreach program, I suddenly found myself having to talk to a 40-person EVS huddle. I was shaking!
I experienced a lot of personal growth. It was nice meeting so many people and going to facilities I’d never heard of. I have enjoyed seeing many of the good managers and how well they participate in the Partnership. Some were supportive of letting me talk to employees. During a huddle, one manager talked about how she herself uses mail order and how much she loves it.
After the campaign, when I went back to the pharmacy, I felt more confident about myself. My manager noticed that I had changed. Without being a mail order champion, I believe that I would not have had the courage to get farther out of my comfort zone.
