The acceptance of personal responsibility for ones’ conduct and influence on the workplace has a very real and powerful impact on the overall success of a dental practice. This influence in and of itself can hold a practice back or propel a practice forward.
Through our attitudes, communication and behavior, each staff member plays a central role in the process of either contributing to or detracting from the dental work environment and realization of goals. There is no neutral influence.
Realizing a healthy and productive work environment involves all staff members accepting personal responsibility for the quality of their working relationships and the influence of their conduct (attitude, communication and behavior) on the workplace.
Leadership and self management are synonymous. Practicing the attributes of leadership leads to greater personal freedom and satisfaction for all staff members.
