Kathleen's Blog - July 24th, 2018

 

We just wrapped up our rdhu 2-day off-site Strategic Planning/Team Building session at the cottage today and I wanted to share with you why I feel that it is so important that every practice holds off-site meetings/team building sessions.

 

It is a chance to step outside your everyday environment and get to know and reconnect with your team.

 

Our team has been together for many years and we have all got to know each other pretty well, so it's always nice to catch up on each other's lives on a personal level.

 

Your team is made up of people with different needs, ambitions and personalities. Getting to know them, and helping them to get to know each other, can build a happy, trusting team.

 

Identifying and working toward a common goal, as a team, can unite your group. Having a clearly identified destination can prevent people from pulling in different directions, which is frustrating and ineffective. More times than not, we all have different wants and needs. What you want and need may be totally different than your co-worker. Going through an exercise as to what each individual wants as an end result and what is important to them will help you in identifying how you will achieve your goals.

 

Conflict is something that is a part of every business or practice. By making sure that the off-site is a ‘safe’ environment to openly discuss issues or concerns will help prevent hurt feelings. I have always been a believer that if something is wrong, it needs to be openly addressed right away and gossip is just not accepted.

 

The purpose of team building activities is to motivate your group to work together, to develop their strengths and to address any weaknesses.

 

Off-sites provide an opportunity to identify ‘broken windows’. For those of you who have attended my Team Building events (The '8 Simple Secrets' to Growing Your Practice), you are familiar with this theory. Identify what isn’t working and how it can be fixed when it is a small problem before it becomes a large problem, is a great way to help you and your team reach your goals.

 

By making team building part of your culture, and not just a one-off, you will strengthen the bonds within your team and will create an atmosphere of positivity and growth.

 

Our next '8 Simple Secrets to Growing Your Practice' is on Friday, September 7th at rdhu. We will be holding another one in Ottawa (with Henry Schein and the Dental Peers Group) on Friday, November 2. So if you are interested in either of those dates, please save the date and send us an email.

 

Thank you for reading and I really appreciate your continued support, feedback and comments! Please find information below regarding what’s coming up! Have a great week!

 

Kindest regards,

 

Kathleen

Having an awesome approach dictates “how” you travel the street you have decided on and effective execution makes certain you are checking in alongside the manner. On average, this procedure can take between three and four months. but no one employer is alike and you can decide to rapid music your process or sluggish it down. Do my homework
