As many of you know, Becky Ward and Amy Jo Newlun are Good Life Facilitators. The Good Life is a “new mental model” that focuses on the ability of professionals to show compassion, appreciation, and respect — not only with the people they serve, but with their team members and community partners. The Good Life mental model focuses on helping people live a good life using some fundamental tools based on compassion, appreciation, and respect.
