What's on Your Desk?
If your practice didn’t get the memo that today was National Take Your Action Figure to Work Day, a"holiday” created clear back in 2014 by Randall Ham, you might want to think about “celebrating” it next year. Getting into the spirit of creative days like this can add a bit more personality to your staff and office.
Letting your patients see another side of you, as more than just provider and staff, creates a more personal connection and opens up the door for a more meaningful relationship.
When your patients feel you relate to them on a personal level, the line of communication tends to open up and your patients will feel more comfortable talking with you about things they may be concerned about with regard to their health. In addition, loyalty will increase, and they will be more likely to refer friends and family to experience all that your practice has to offer.
Plenty of Solutionaries participated in the fun and decorated their desks with anything from bobble-headed Mario Bros and Star Wars action figures to Napolean Dynamite and John Snow charging into battle on the back of My Little Pony. The energy was high and the smiles were contagious…what a fun way to create a more fun, relaxed work environment and end another productive work week!
If you didn’t catch wind soon enough to grab your action figure off your nightstand and bring it to work to put on display, don’t forget to mark your calendars for next year. Missing out on the fun one year is one thing, but two years in a row would be a tragedy! Try changing things up a bit…your patients will love it!
