You guys, positivity starts with your underwear
Consider this discreet team-building tip from Shawn Finch, DVM:
At the practice I work at we dedicated a small corner of the white board to a “Positivity Corner.” Team members could add to the list of random things that make us happy. They're mostly work related, but anything is good.
Every morning, a team member volunteered a (ahem) verbal description of their underwear pattern, and we used that description to design the border of the Positivity Corner.
We were all so amused with ourselves. And I truly believe that as valuable as a positive outlook is, the real reason the Positivity Corner survived so long is because we just thought we were hilarious.
Sometimes the mortality and morbidity inherent in our veterinary career needs to be balanced with a positive outlook, and sometimes getting through the day takes a little bit more.
