I always look for the good in people, and believe that deep down, all people want to do the right thing. Until proven wrong, I place my faith in other people every day. My employees are so critical in maintaining a safe and pleasant experience for each patient, and we train each one for a tremendous amount of time. I want each person who works at Yager Esthetics to be a great ambassador for the practice, and to comport themselves as an honest advocate not only for the practice but for the patient as well.
Being in private practice here for 20 years now, I have had many employees. While I am dedicated to the practice, many of my employees go on to get married, have children, move out of state, or get degrees or return to school. As their lives change, sometimes they have to move on. I am happy when I see them grow as people and go on to do great things and achieve happiness.
I tell each employee from the beginning that if they reach a point where they are not enjoying their work at Yager Esthetics, to let us know immediately. We try to see if there is a modification that can be made, and if not, are happy to help them transition to another field or adventure in life. We only ask for the professionalism and courtesy of being honest and upfront with us, and giving the time needed to seek a replacement.
Over the years, we have been very successful by treating patients and staff in this respectful manner. Of course, my trust has been betrayed on a few occasions by less than honorable staff. I would rather live my life believing in the good in people than being mistrustful of everyone. I will not change for the few bad apples. They have to look in the mirror and live with who they are.
