Do you ever feel like things in the practice aren’t running like you want? That you’re working to pay everyone else? That your team just isn’t on board?
Do you ever just want them to do what they’re supposed to without you having to remind them? Are you taking employee problems home with you at night?
If so, you’re not alone. Most practice owners have this same complaint – no matter what category your practice falls into, we’re all in the same boat. As many of us started out as providers, we got into healthcare to ‘help’ people not ‘manage’ them. Also, we wouldn’t be business owner if we didn’t have the drive to work hard; and I bet if you’re anything like Mike and I, you often wonder why your staff aren’t more like you. When we have to manage our employees, it can be difficult to separate our helping nature from the need to get people doing what is expected.
Today let’s talk about finding the right people, next week we’ll talk more about getting them to do what you need them to do.
There are people out there who can and will do what you need them to do. You just have to have the right process in place to help you find them.
