Practice tip of the week: Six ways to motivate your team for free


Your weekly dose of wisdom from the Physicians Practice experts.

With all the useful information available on Physicians Practice, it is easy to become overwhelmed.

With this in mind, the tip of the week is a chance to reflect on some of the wisdom found all across the site.

In a March 2021 story on six ways to motivate your team for free, Avery Hurt writes the following:

"The best motivators are relatively easy, inexpensive, and often a whole lot of fun. Try a few of these ideas at your practice and see if your team is more willing to go the extra mile.

1). One of the best ways to have a motivated team is when the doctor knows everyone’s name, and says thank you.

2). When your team is aware of the larger goal that their work is a part of, they’ll feel an investment in the organization and have a reason to work hard to achieve that organization’s goals.

3). You can acknowledge the work of a team or point out individuals who’ve gone above and beyond. Just make sure they get the memo. Don’t assume they know you value you them."
