Building a team that is loyal, highly inspired, and willing to go to great lengths to make your vision a reality is an ideal goal for most Chiropractors.
How close are you to having that team?
Sometimes, you need to hire additional people. Sometimes, you need to get rid of some. Often, however, the right team members are on board. Yet the overall culture may not be allowing them to shine to their greatest potential.
Robin Sharma, in his book “Leadership Wisdom from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari”, suggests that to create an ideal team culture and highly inspired team members, follow the “Reward Routinely, Recognise Relentlessly” ritual.
In essence, let every single team member know exactly what success looks like. Look for it early and often, and reward it repeatedly when found.
He suggested some of the following ideas to reward your team:
- Sincere praise – praise must be specific, immediate, done in public, and it must be sincere.
- Customised gifts – ask yourself, “What could I do, in terms of rewarding and recognising my people for excellent work, that would make them say ‘wow’ on receiving it?”.
- The “Treasure Chest” – have a chest full of motivational and inspiring books or audio programs that a team member can choose from when recognised for their efforts.
- “Victory Wall” – place motivational quotes and strategic goals on it.
- Symbols of Victory – bring in an object that symbolises a victory such as a Hawaiian lai to symbolise a vacation to Hawaii when a major goal is realised.
- Team Traditions – family picnics, team lunches or activities on a regular basis.
Team members who feel valued and part of an exciting team will give more of their best. Inspire them through the ritual of “Reward Routinely, Recognise Relentlessly”.
You will be on your way to massively enhancing your team culture and results.
