Five Ways to Better Motivate Your Medical Staff

Five Ways to Better Motivate Your Medical Staff


Medical staff provide the patient’s first and last interactions with your practice, and the effect that they have on that experience can be either beneficial or detrimental to a patient’s overall impression of your practice. Staff motivation is always the key to excellent service. Here are five ways you can involve your medical staff:

Help With Problem Solving

  • If you’re facing a practice-related issue, use it as an opportunity to involve your staff. Helping their boss with an issue tells your employees that their input is valued.

Always Listen

  • If your employee has input about their job, listen to them. Knowing that their voice is heard greatly helps staff involvement.

Don’t Accuse

  • One of the most important things you can do in the face of an issue is ask what happened. Assigning blame wrongly can do a lot of damage to your workplace culture.

Don’t Assume

  • When problems come up, assuming you know what happened heightens negativity and leaves a bad impression. Approach conflict with humility and understanding. These traits will greatly contribute to fostering positive staff involvement.

Stay Positive

  • With negative leadership, it’s difficult to enjoy going to work each day. Make positivity the standard, and your employees will love working at your practice.
