Stimulate Creativityby Dr. Ron Arndt
- If your employees are making mistakes freely and fearlessly.
- If people are coming to work excited and having fun.
- If they’re concentrating on things, rather than preparing reports and going to meetings…
… then you have an opportunity to grow your business.
Even if you feel that your dental practice is at the end of its rope, remember that discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping-stones to success.
Use simple techniques to get people involved and thinking, i.e. role-play with team members as patients, or play music during brain storming sessions. Few of us simply sit down and begin to “create” without a stimulus.
When we make learning and problem solving fun, the results are much more rewarding and profitable. What problems do you experience in your dental practice now? Is it staff, or bringing in more referrals? How can you solve those problems in fun, creative ways?
I recently read somewhere that men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers. What can you dream about for your practice?
