No longer can a practitioner complete his or her education, hang a shingle and be assured patients/clients will flock to the door and comply with treatment for diagnosed conditions or recommended protocols. The professional practice today exists in a very different and competitive environment.
A practitioner’s clinical or technical ability is important, but the practitioner’s ability to communicate, lead, work as a team, and develop relationships with other people in today’s market is essential. Recruiting, training, retaining and inspiring valued employees is more important than ever. Escalating costs of doing business have created an urgent need to manage overhead and maximize personnel efficiency, effectiveness and productivity. The practitioner, quite simply, has a lot to do!
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you control your practice—or is it controlling you?
- Are you headed in a direction you really want to go?
- Do you have a clear vision and mission—and have you communicated this to your team and gained their enthusiastic commitment of support?
- Does your effectiveness as a leader get you the results you want or cause increased stress (yours and theirs)?
- Does motivated and enthusiastic describe your team members, or are you in need of a greater “team spirit” than you presently enjoy?
- Are you satisfied with the productivity and success of your practice?
- Are expenses so high that there’s not enough for yourself and your family at the end of the month after paying salaries and operating expenses?
- Has your practice stopped growing for no apparent reason?
Private practice can be an exciting, stimulating adventure—but frustrating and energy-draining when the practice is not healthy or headed in the right direction. Many professionals find it difficult to manage day-to-day operations while delivering high-quality services. Dr. Cheryl works with you and your team so you can be in control, rather than your practice controlling you.
