Boosting Morale in the Workplace

Hi, it's Tina and I'm here with your One Minute Management Tip.

You know, almost 20 years ago I picked up a book that really changed my outlook in how I wanted the environment to be in the medical practice that I worked in. And the book was titled Fish. Now there's three books - or four books - in this series, but this one little book is designed to boost morale in your practice and to improve the results that you get with one another and with the customers that come into your place, every single thing, which are our patients.

You know, we may not be able to choose the job tasks that we get to do every single day. At least that's the way it is in our office, but there is one thing that we do get to choose. And that's our attitude and how we do those tasks. Our attitude makes all the difference in the world.

Remember this, are you half empty or half full? It's a choice. And you know what? Brendan Burchard says, "We shall meet life with full presence and power." We have the power to choose who we bring to work every day. And then the attitude that we're going to keep every single minute, every single moment of the day, no matter what happens, good or bad, we get the choice of how we're going to react to it.

So, if you want to have a fun project for your practice, pick up a couple of these books. Take the time to read it. It'll only take about an hour, but I bet you it will make a big change and the way you think about the work that you do every single day and the service that you bring to the patients who come there.
