How to Inspire, Motivate, and Engage Caregivers

Do you know how to inspire, motivate, and engage your hospital staff members?

As the workplace is recovering from the pandemic, how do you, as a leader, inspire resilience, agility, teamwork, and positive thinking?

When the pandemic began, it was evident that all we could do as educators was to get out of the way because healthcare professionals had so much to do.

During this time, leaders recognized that there was a need to inspire caregivers at every level during these challenging times.

Here’s how.

Creating Positive Videos to Inspire, Motivate, and Engage Caregivers

To inspire your caregivers, record a five-minute video about delivering kindness care to patients, peer care for each other, self-care for yourself, and leadership nuggets of wisdom.

You can use these videos in different ways:

  • Share a video at a daily meeting or patient experience meeting.
  • Watch the videos and identify habits you like.
  • Create a contest and get points every day if you practice one of those habits.

Fifteen minutes a day of watching and sharing these videos gives you 90 hours a year to inspire others and be inspired.

To inspire, motivate, and engage your caregivers, watch positive videos that touch your heart and inspire your soul.

Listen to people with positive attitudes that inspire you to be better. Think about what inspires you and how you can share that with other people.

Remember: it takes 21 days to form a habit and 90 days to change a lifestyle. Investing 15 minutes a day watching, listening, and discussing these ideas with your peers gives you 90 hours a year to inspire and be inspired.

  1. Type in “Caregiver Heroes” on YouTube.
