Keep the Rock Rolling

Close your eyes, imagine your legs flexed. Your hands on a rock. You are slowly taking a step up the hill. One step at a time. You're almost to the top and you stop for just a second to take a break. 
 If you stop, rolling what happens? 

Will it flatten you or will you have others on the side of you to stop it from taking you down the hill with it? That depends on you. Leadership is a tough roll and it can be very stressful. You can come to work and feel that the weight of everything lies on your shoulders and your shoulders alone. Being alone all the time, keeps you in the center of the rock all the time, just waiting for you to stop.  

Leaders recognize they do not have to carry the burden of being a leader alone. They actively seek out other professionals that have the same beliefs, or have been in similar situations that can provide support for them.

However, it is important as a leader to help keep you afloat when times are rough to have partners or others that will help support you.  Professional relationships can help you get banking suggestions, staffing support or patient help when a patient is suing.  There are hundreds of organizations and other dentists that are out there that can help you build up your leadership support. 

No one should push the rock up such a big hill by themselves.

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.
