Optometry Consulting: Motivated Employees Create Motivated Customers!
Motivated Employees Keep your Customers Coming Back!
“The best way to ensure everyone around you is motivated, is to get rid of the people who aren’t motivated.” ~ Lou Holtz
This statement couldn’t be truer! Have you ever walked into a restaurant or retail store and talked to an employee who wasn’t excited to be at work? I have. It sucks. The only thing I can ever think about is why is that person here and how fast can I leave. If you have employees working for you that could qualify as “not motivated” I have to ask you one question: How many of your patients feel the same way I do in the example above when they encounter that employee? Probably most. Employees who are motivated to be at work create a positive environment, for other employees and most importantly, PATIENTS.

When patients are having a good time or enjoy their environment, they spend more money! If in 2012, one of your practice’s goals is to increase your profits (which should be a goal every year), than you need to take a detailed audit of your staff and follow Lou Holtz’s advice. You just might see immediate results!
Remember, in this economic environment, fire fast and hire slow!
