CEDR: How to Engage Your Employees and Power Through a Crisis as a Team

Credits: None available.

Employee engagement has never been more important to the success of your practice.

Adversity is the mother of engagement.

Right now, you have a crisis to get through. Your team is looking to you for answers, and, naturally, you are doing all you can to help everyone at your practice work through each twist and turn together.

Clearly, this isn’t how you intended to get it, but, now more than ever, you have your employees’ attention.

From entry-level to the executive level, the entire business world is focused on one thing and one thing only at this moment -- getting through this crisis and back to “normal.” As a result, you have an extraordinary opportunity as a business owner to leverage your strategic HR and business planning efforts as a way to power through this shutdown and come back with your team stronger than it has ever been.

Whether you have two employees or two-hundred, an engaged team is a team that shows up with the drive, desire, and ideas your business needs to bring your patients and your practice back together.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to engage your team and keep them focused on your goals
  • How an engaged team makes you more money
  • How to use your Company Culture as a management tool
  • How to design your Company’s Purpose, Mission, and Core Values to work for you
  • How to onboard in a way that drastically reduces turnover, and more!
