Leaders Don’t Settle…

If you are reading this article, it’s an indication that you’re doing OK. You’re a dentist, or employed in a dental practice. You probably make a decent income. Overall you have a nice life. Basically you’ve got what you need. If that’s enough for you, stop reading right now.
My hunch is that over the years, you’ve raised the bar on what you want. In college or even in dental school you may have settled for a small apartment, a cheap car, maybe you slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10 inch black and white TV. It’s unlikely that those things would satisfy you now.
So why are you now settling for a good job rather than an exciting career?
The difference between getting what you need and achieving the life you want is leadership skills. By investing in yourself, you move closer to the fulfillment of your financial and professional desires. Leadership enables you to stand out from the pack. It requires courage. Displaying authenticity. Coaching and developing your staff for maximum performance. Demonstrating ethics and integrity in business.
If you are to achieve the success you seek, here are some of the leadership skills you will need.
In the beginning of this article, I invited you to stop reading if you were satisfied with the status quo. The fact that you’re still reading tells me (and YOU) that you want more. If you are a leader by default, step up to the plate and start taking an active role in developing your skills. Invest in yourself. Read. Get a coach. It will pay off in the end!
The potential to become a better leader is well within your capability! Dr. Haller is available for dental leadership coaching and development. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if you would benefit from one of our leadership programs.
