To continue on the topic of being 'Indispensable in the Dental Practice'...
Another key concept is to view situations from multiple perspectives.
We all perceive things differently and it is an important thing to recognize and appreciate the differences and the perspectives.
To be open to new ideas and concepts from someone else's view.
We are going to see things differently than a team member or a client based on our own beliefs or experiences. We all have different upbringings and beliefs which will impact our perception of a situation or person. It comes from a personal point of view and is shaped by life experiences, values, current state of mind and the assumptions that are made!
There is great value in recognizing different perspectives in conversations or situations because these enable us to hear and react to things very differently.
My perception doesn't make it right or a reality.
It is just the way that I perceive something.
Try looking at other team members' or clients' perspectives from their points of view. Close your eyes and imagine you are them. As if you were them...."What do I want? What do I fear?"
A perspective is not right or wrong by default. It is the point of view of a single person based on their life experiences and values, among other things. We each have one and sometimes we share it with others, and sometimes we do not.
Allowing yourself to see a situation or conversation from someone else's eyes will help you as a leader in your practice and will become another reason why ...YOU are indispensable!
Have a great week ahead! Please take a look below for what is coming up!
