In Dental School, they taught us the technical skills and manual dexterity necessary to effectively be a dentist. What they don’t spend a lot of time on is how to be a better boss, how to lead, how to delegate, how to hire and train employees, and how to market our practices. As small business owners, we often don’t have the training or manpower to provide effective leadership training or coaching for both to ourselves and our staff. This article describes several habits, attitudes, training, and focus that can help a technical person to become a better leader, marketer, manager, and cheerleader for your team.
Be sure to take time to work “ON” your business and not just “IN” the business. This means, take the time to strengthen your leadership and management skills. No one will look after your business if you don’t. The most successful dentists are ones who track results, acknowledge improvement, express gratitude, and lead by example. They describe their vision for the practice and work tirelessly towards that goal.
