    10 Essential Team Needs As We Move Past Challenge and Change:

    Keys to Encourage Engagement, Productivity and Combat Burnout Within Your Dental Team

    Burnout and role overload are pervasive during times of change and crisis. How do you ensure that your dental team feels safe, supported, and productive as they move through this challenge?

    Description:

    Many of our teams were having difficulty coping with stress and were facing burnout and mental health challenges long before COVID-19 came along. Through COVID-19 we are seeing that their stress is heightened even further, and our dental teams will continue to be at risk. Research shows that failing to meet the essential needs of your team will result in burnout, mental health challenges, increased absenteeism, disengagement and lost productivity. Dentists who understand their team’s essential needs will have teams that can thrive during this uncertainty.

    Successful dentists know that small shifts can have a major impact. By focusing on these 10 Essential Needs, this interactive training will help you to choose the most effective strategies to help your dental team move forward through this change, minimize their negative stress symptoms and reactions, and protect their mental health now and in the future.

    Discover how to effectively support your dental team as they continue to respond to challenges, and cope through change. Learn to choose the most effective strategies that will help your team stay engaged, balance the uncertainty, and build resilience.

    Key Messages:

    ● There is a mental health continuum that we all move along, and it is dynamic as we experience stress, challenges, and crisis.

    ● Dentists who understand and address their team’s essential needs , will have teams that thrive through this uncertainty and those that ignore those needs will struggle to be productive, service their patients, and be viable.

    ● Support is critical in combating mental health challenges.

    ● Resilient people are able to sustain successful performance and positive well-being in the face of adverse conditions

    ● Resiliency is created and sustained through adaptability, a sense of purpose and vision, insight and problem-solving, and garnering support.

    ● In the workplace, dentists can not only model resilient behaviour and attitudes, which is critical, but they can also employ strategies to meet the mental health needs of their teams to encourage engagement, productivity, and resilience.

    Participants Will:

    ● Recognize the signs and symptoms that are signaling that your dental team is not coping with the uncertainty and disruption

    ● Distinguish the 10 Essential Team Needs that must be addressed in supporting your team as they continue to move through this uncertainty

    ● Avoid the pitfalls to managing a team during and after crisis

    ● Discover the 3 C’s that are vital to effective leadership
