Stop Making Excuses; Chart a New Course
“If my staff would get their act together, we would probably be okay.” “My employees are gossipy.” “They simply won’t do things the way I want them done.” “Staff bring their personal problems to work.”…and the list goes on. Doctors that are not satisfied with the performance of their practices commonly blame their teams. It’s human nature to claim that others are responsible for our problems.
It is particularly true for those dentists that have been clobbered by the recession. Many would rather complain and blame others and external forces than address the real issues - which, more often than not, are of the doctor's own making. If that is your choice, then stop complaining and lie in the bed that you have made. If, however, you are ready to make some changes, see some improvements, and start enjoying walking into the office every day, consider if your own behaviors are the ones that need to be addressed.
