Hold Annual Retreatsby Dr. Ron Arndt
As we approach the end of the year, this is an opportune time for you to strategically set aside a full day of planning for you and your team.
I hear many dentists tell me that this kind of planning is just a horrific waste of time.
What a huge mistake they are making in their thinking.
With an annual day of planning, there are opportunities to plan for the next year. Invite each team member to be a part of the agenda and to be responsible for one element of the retreat’s success. Hold your retreat off-site and keep it informal. A clearly written annual plan, developed with everyone’s input, will cause your practice numbers to take off!

I’d love to hear from you about how you do your annual planning. What are some of the keys to your success in laying out your 2012?
