At Dr. Monica Scheel Dermatology we feel that team building is a great opportunity to bond with our co-workers outside of our desk and emails. These retreats help our team get out of our comfort zones and connect with each other outside of the office. We believe that less stress means a more productive workplace and these team building retreats build productivity within the office.
During this retreat at Kohanaiki we focused and reflected on how we can improve our staff and patient experience. We reviewed our mission statement, vision, and did a fun team-building exercise on our company’s values. It was clear that taking care of our staff and patients is our top priority. Elizabeth Monroe from BSM Consulting also led a workshop for us on emotional intelligence and we discussed how to put our emotions in check and think before we react, something that is a beneficial skill for any leader. Overall, these workshops helped us be effective in communication and working together towards our goals. Lastly, we worked on our company action plan and what we can work together on going forward. It was such a great day for all of us to regroup, reflect, have fun as a team.
