And that’s Empowering Your Team. Empowering Your Team is just plain smart business. It boosts morale. Makes the vibe in the office upbeat, which patients can feel and feed off of. It also creates a motivated bunch of Team Members. If they have a responsibility that they can call their own, they feel inspired to make sure it’s done right. Plus, it creates friendly competition, as each team member’s got his or her fiefdom to look after. Now the most critical area for empowering Team Members is marketing your practice.
