We all know work can be stressful, especially as a practice owner. There is so much that goes into running a practice, and it can get downright tiring. Although we can get stressed, it is important to remember certain things we should not do at the workplace. Here are some tips for both bosses and employees.

  1. Being a gossip
    Gossiping about others will only make you look negative. Not only is it inappropriate, but it can also get back to the person you are talking about, causing a lot of tension in the workplace.
  2. Not being able to control your emotions
    Everyone gets stressed, tired and frustrated at some point in their careers. The important thing is how you choose to deal with them. If you get upset and, for instance, slam things around, you will end up looking bad to your employees and boss. If you find yourself having a rough day at work, try taking a walk around the building or a few minutes to yourself.
  3. Announcing how much you hate your job
    You are at work. You should not be saying how much you hate your job. This not only makes you look ungrateful, but negative as well. Chances are if you announce this to your colleagues, they will begin to feel negatively as well, and your boss will certainly take notice.
  4. Burning a bridge
    Whether it be with a fellow employee or a patient, work connections are important, and should be treated as such. Consider the other person’s feelings when dealing with them in the work environment.
  5. Eating food that does not smell good
    While this may be overlooked, it is a big deal especially in a practice. Do not bring a lunch that can stink up a whole office. It is rude and sends the message that you are only concerned with your own comfort.

Although some of these behaviors seem very extreme, they happen more often than you think. There is a possibility that these can sneak up on you, so just be mindful in your workplace. AuDStandard’s experienced and compassionate Professional Development team will take your audiology practice to the next level by offering a full range of support, professional coaching, and training & development tools aimed at increasing your practice’s overall functionality, as well as its level of patient care and overall satisfaction.
