The Choices You Make


Every choice you make throughout the day has an impact on your business. No matter how small the choice seems or how little you think it will impact you, it does. According to, Leading Every Day, "one of the key characteristics of leaders is that they consciously make all kinds of choices." It is important in the decisions you make as a leader that you make a decision and then move forward but also that you think through the decisions you make.

Make decisions that are going to move your group towards the goal. Don't waste time doing the wrong thing. It is important however, that the mission of your dentist office is clear and concise. Make sure your teammates know what the mission is in order for them to understand the decisions you are making.  You also, need to come back to the mission often.

Leadership deviation occurs when the mission becomes unclear or when people forget about the mission. Leadership choices have to be made to support the purpose and goal of your organization. Choices should also be made that move your office forward. Sometimes we have to complete tasks that we don’t want to or that hold us back. However, a majority of your choices and decisions and activities should align with what you are trying to accomplish.

Questions, problems and activities jump out at you all day long. It is important to establish steps that you are going to take in order to follow through with an appropriate choice to reach your goal. Keep this in mind and if you don’t have time, don’t make the decision right away.


Great teams take effort. Take time to work on your practice regularly to build quality communication and strengthen your results. For more information and to read other articles, please visit us at www.saltdpm.com.
