Inculcated into the Ethos


What? This statement was sent via email to employers by a company offering ways to bring mental health training to the workplace. Dang, I feel stupid. I had to look up the terms "inculcated" and "ethos." This is what I found...

The online dictionary defines:

inculcate | inˈkəlˌkāt, ˈinkəlˌkāt | verb [with object] instill (an attitude, idea, or habit) by persistent instruction: the failures of the churches to inculcate a sense of moral responsibility.

Or as the online Thesaurus says:

inculcate verb; the beliefs inculcated in him by his father: instill in, implant in, fix in, impress in, imprint in; hammer into, drum into, drive into, drill into.

The online dictionary defines:

ethos | ˈēTHäs | noun; the characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as manifested in its beliefs and aspirations: a challenge to the ethos of the 1960s.

Or as the Thesaurus says:

ethos noun; responsibility for the ethos of the school: spirit, character, atmosphere,

mood, feeling, tenor, essence; disposition, rationale, morality, moral code, value system, principles, standards, ethics.

My take away from this recommendation is that I need to hammer into my employees my beliefs and aspirations based on my own moral code and ethical standards.

I don't think I'd be in business very long if I did this.

If you'd like to bring mental health services to your company that is not biased or rooted in forcing, drilling, or hammering but stands on a foundation of love, inclusion, and acceptance, please call us.
