T E A M – Together Everyone Achieves More
In my life as a female chiropractor, I see that a healthy, optimum functioning body requires the coordinated effort of every aspect of the body. No cell, tissue, organ or system by itself will allow us to experience the highest levels of life expression. It takes teamwork by all the parts of the body.
As part of a transition taking place in my office, teamwork will be one of the major focuses.
Teamwork allows teams and families to be successful. Teamwork allows our body and our practice to be healthy. Teamwork in my practice, for example is essential to serve people to the best of our ability.
One of the main reasons I am in practice is to see people healed and delivered from interferences. I live and breathe chiropractic with all my substance. This is my reason or purpose for doing the best I can to inspire my team, to reach people and share chiropractic with them.
When you talk about success, most of the time you would think that you are the reason behind the success. But in reality, the success of your practice or business depends on whether you have developed a strong staff who are all on the same page as yourself.
An essential ingredient is having a team spirit deep within you. Next step is having your team sharing that spirit, or failure is inevitable. When you’re unified as a team, there’s much power and room for growth and success. There have been times of stagnant growth because of being stifled by an environment of distress. This occurred when the group or team worked as individuals rather than team members.
Teamwork is never by accident
It’s always deliberate and voluntary. Teamwork is defined as “the work of a number of persons in close association as members of one unit.”
- The first thing that is needed is to express the need for and the importance of teamwork.
- Describe what the business is all about, why we have a practice and what the purpose is.
- Purpose is defined as “an object or result aimed at with determination”. This word is one of the components of a great team.
- Having people on your side assisting you and believing in what you believe in only makes that idea stronger, and more powerful.
There will be support and challenge, possibilities and difficulties, positives and negatives. This is inevitable. We do have choices on how we tackle it and from which angle. There are many different ways you can look at your team and examine and re-examine whether or not this team is the best it can be. Many factors and a lot of good old fashioned hard work go into making a team that works.
