Communication is vital when it comes to building effective teams. Encourage your team members to practice active listening when dealing with clients and patients. You should practice this, too. Implement an open-door policy, so your staff feels comfortable coming to you with concerns, questions, and ideas.
Happy, healthy employees are productive and effective. Cultivate wellness in your practice by providing nutritious meals for your team or scheduling regular spa days, massages, mindfulness classes, etc. You could even make a gym membership a part of your benefits package to help your team stay healthy or have experts come in to speak on health and wellness topics.
Employees who feel appreciated are more productive. Take the time to let the members of your staff know that you appreciate their effort. Recognize them for their accomplishments and for going the extra mile when caring for patients. A simple “thank you” goes a long way toward making your team members feel valued and preventing burnout.
