One of the biggest influences on the health of a dental practice is communication. An office where there is strong and clear communication gets smarter and stronger with time. That’s because the people in that office learn from one another, identify critical challenges, and recover quickly from errors or issues, without drama, politics or confusion.
If you have ever worked in an office filled with drama, politics, dysfunction, and confusion, you know the emotional AND the financial cost of having poor communication. Those offices waste time and resources, have lower productivity, loss of revenue, high staff turnover, and high levels of client attrition.
So how do we go about achieving crystal clear communication? The answer lies in having great meetings.
In order to have greater clarity and focus, and in order to improve communication and ensure that your staff knows exactly what is expected of them and when, it’s time to rethink your meetings, and rethink what you talk about at those meetings. What we all need is the right kind of meetings, and then we need to make these effective.
All meetings need vision and structure. They also need a clear agenda, specific topics to cover, and a general protocol of how the meeting is supposed to run. It’s time to shift how we do our meetings so we can get things done in each one, with specific, clear definite actions that help us grow, help us create a better practice.
