The fact is - there has never been and will never be a moment when dentistry doesn't have a sh*t list and a hit list.
The sh*t list is all the reasons to be miserable.
The hit list is all the reasons to be cheerful.
I often go through those lists at the start of a team training session - so that the audience can all join me on the same page as far as the overall landscape is concerned.
Yesterday, I began my session with the Practice Plan Regional Sales Managers with the lists - and the resulting conversation took us from an 09:00 start to a 12:30 lunch.
My latest version (updated this week) is attached below - please enjoy.
Print a copy for yourself and digest the contents;
Print copies for your management team and discuss;
Print copies for all of your team and discuss.
Whichever option you choose - you can then ask two simple questions:
What are we going to do to protect ourselves from the sh*t list?
What are we going to do to take advantage of the hit list?
Here at The Extreme Business 100 community - we do this constantly.
I'm delighted to have welcomed back two returning clients this week - back into coaching after a break.
We are back at 99 members and have 1 vacancy for a dental business who want to start-up, scale, sell or self-manage.
