If 2020 showed us nothing else, it proved that teams matter. Whether that’s being one member of the Team of Five Million, one critical team member of your own family, or one important member of your clinic’s veterinary team.
Knowing how you and/or your colleagues like to be appreciated at work can go a huge way to improving staff morale, reducing churn and overall, improving productivity.
“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success”
One of the things that became more evident to me (Julie South) as 2020 matured, was clinics that had their team’s “stuff” sorted, grew stronger. While those that didn’t, started to fray at the edges and quickly became unravelled. Some imploded resulting in mass resignations.
- How did that happen…?
- Could those implosions have been averted…?
- What could have been done differently…?
- By whom…?
Fine tune your Attitude of Appreciation
You chose your vocation as a veterinary professional because you wanted to make a difference and save lives. It makes sense therefore to want to enjoy the time you spend at work as much as possible.
Sharing your life with people who you know appreciate you and whom you appreciate, makes work a whole bunch more rewarding.
One of the ways this can happen is through personal self-awareness and, by extension, awareness of your team members.
- What does it take for you to feel appreciated at work?
- How do you know your team appreciates you?
- What do you do to show your team mates your appreciation of them?
