How to break through the stress and shift your practice’s energy [VIDEO]

Issue 12

Even the best and the brightest teams will fall short of their goals if they are not all on the same page.

Even the best and the brightest teams will fall short of their goals if they are not all on the same page.

I’ve seen talented teams that are actually more of a group of people working alongside each other, but with competing priorities, plateau, unable to advance to the next level of success.

The best way out of this rut - so you create new growth - starts with coming together to shift the energy in the practice, to shift the practice culture.

If you want to create a new culture, you have to change the energy feeding the old culture. Here’s a more everyday example of how to look at it.


At your next team meeting, I challenge you to go one step further and write down what you do without using any words that could be found in your job description.  Work with a partner so you can rate each other’s answers and nix the ones that might be a task on a job description.

Bring everyone together to understand why you do what you do… and we all know it’s so much more than fixing teeth. It’s about who you are being when you do what you do… it’s about changing lives, restoring confidence and lifting people up.
