Last week we started to take a look at how one can bring more value to a practice and essentially, become indispensable in the dental practice. This in turn, can put you in a position where you feel you are heard and can make change happen in your favour (financially included!). We received a lot of positive response and I would like to thank those of you who reached out. And please know, we know many of you are already doing these things, but sometimes, we could use a little reminder or can share this message with someone who needs it!
Just a quick re-cap (self-assess):
1. Are you proactively bringing solutions? Are you a problem solver or a problem bringer? We shared a couple of suggestions and resources. If you missed reading last week's email, you may want to check it out or if you are new to rdhu this week, please feel free to email and we can forward it to you.
To continue on:
2. Are you speaking up? Could you contribute more?
Essentially to me, this means, are you showing up? Are you playing forward? If you aren't, find your voice and share your thoughts. Do it with conviction and a smile. A positive mindset and attitude will get you far. Don't convince. Compel. Believe in yourself and fight for your ideas and suggestions. Play full out!
3. Volunteer more. Are you volunteering?
Could you step up and lead a program? Could you be the one who researches and finds solutions?
Sometimes we need to show that we are a team player and can add more value by taking the lead in something. Have the guts to volunteer and perhaps step out of your comfort zone and not worry whether you succeed or fail.
These are another few examples of assessing the value you bring to your practice.
Stay tuned for next week, where we continue on this topic!
Thank you for reading and have a great week ahead. Please take a look below for what is coming up!
