In the next two weeks, we tackle GOAL SETTING and MARKETING. Please join us so we can help you get off to a great start in 2021. Listen above and read below for more information.
COMING UP IN ACT U
Don't know where to start in setting your 2021 goals?
Does your team dislike numeric goals?
Have goals actually proven de-motivating in the past?
Have you struggled with tracking and following through with practice goals in the past?
If so, join me this Friday as I walk you through "The Ultimate Goal Setting Process" from start to finish. We will give you a blueprint for strategic planning as well as take-home best practices for setting your 2021 goals and using them successfully to guide and motivate your team. Those of you joining us will want to download and print this Strategic Planning Tool out in advance to following along this Friday. In addition, anyone that missed last week's blog post on S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Goals needs to see this!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Last week Dr. Brian Schroder joined ACT U. Watch Dr. Schroder's recording here. In this motivational and inspiring Master Class, he expounds on the importance of not having a myopic mindset when we are examining the way in which we treatment plan and view our dental cases in the context of how to incorporate better interdisciplinary care.
PRACTICE COACHING TIP
One quick and easy way to build your team into one filled with leaders rather than one filled with employees is by simply asking one question. Any time a team member comes to you with a question, replay by saying, "Good question, what do you think?" Asking this makes the team member a participant in the solution rather than just a messenger. As the dentist, you should eventually answer the question and give guidance, but asking them to participate in the creation of possible solutions does two things.
