Ask yourself the following questions to determine your practice's emotional intelligence climate.
Ask yourself the following questions to determine your practice's emotional intelligence climate:
Do people laugh at your practice? Laughter is a fundamental benchmark of a happy work environment. If employees spend too much time fighting, chances are your team could use some EQ coaching.
Do people work long hours without time for reflection? Pauses in the action are important to improve your practice's climate.
Do people know how to talk to each other, or is the practice a high-stress environment where finances are unpredictable, clients are short on money, animals are sick, and no one knows how to talk about it?
Do team members seek you out, or do they avoid your gaze or duck into treatment rooms to escape attention? High-EQ bosses know how to breed a family environment where team members want to be together.
