4 Approaches to Building a Highly Motivated Healthcare Organization
The concept of motivation is a complex and tricky topic, especially when dealing with workplaces. The source of motivation is dependent on personal interests and levels of importance, leaving room for variation from person to person. For example, some are the most productive in the morning hours, while others have more energy in the afternoon or evening. Many are motivated by long-term goals, while others strive for quick satisfaction.
As a practice manager, it can be a challenge to encourage so many different personalities under one roof. There is not a single approach that will effectively impact the entire group as a whole. So, how do you ensure your staff is getting what they need from you to perform their best?
The following four tips are powerful and personal approaches to connect with your staff members that will likely kick productivity into high gear.
1. Recognize hard work
2. Consider a formal recognition program for your employees
3. Connect role with goals
4. Establish human connections through communication
5. Provide ongoing training
It takes time and effort to build employee motivation, but trying a wide variety of approaches can help you find what works for both the unique individuals and the organization as a whole.
