November is Gratitude Month – Gratitude helps to strengthen and motivate your team, encouraging employee loyalty and engagement. Don’t assume they know that you appreciate them just because you give them a paycheck every week. Show them by your words and actions that you value and appreciate their contributions to the success of the practice.
“Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life. “—Northrup Christiane
See Why Gratitude Matters for several ways for you to express and show gratitude for your dental team.
Team Appreciation – National Nachos Day 6th– Bring in Nachos for lunch from a local restaurant or do a build-your-own nachos lunch potluck style.
