We all want to take our practice to the next level but sometimes it can seem that we're stuck on a plateau and we just can't break through that ceiling.
Here are my top tips for upleveling your practice and breaking through that ceiling to achieve the practice of your dreams and live your very best life!
1. Believe in your dream
In order to achieve the practice of your dreams you need to firstly have a dream and believe in it whole-heartedly! You need to be clear on what you want and be fully committed to getting it! Manifesting your dream is an excellent way to get everything you have ever wanted and if you really commit to it amazing things will happen! Check out one of my favourite books on the subject, The Secret by Ronda Byrne.
Don't just build your vision, believe it and live it into existence! Inspire your team to do the same.
2. Recruit & Inspire an amazing team of people
If there is one thing I can tell you with absolute certainty, it is that you categorically cannot do this alone. You need to have a team of people around you that can allow you to really focus on your piece of the puzzle whether that's treating patients, concentrating on marketing or finances or whatever else. Your team needs to believe and want your dream on a real level, they need to be passionate and engaged and they need to feel inspired and valued.
3. Communicate your vision and inspire a team culture that supports it
An inspired and engaged team can only work towards your dream practice if they first understand their own personal vision and secondly understand your vision, your why and where they are going.
Invest your time and efforts into developing a team culture that supports your vision, ensure that everyone is onboard, involved and feels valued. Set an example and treat your team well, a thank you goes a long way.
4. Develop systems that keep your practice running like clock work
Systems........my favourite word :) A good system should be developed, documented and implemented to ensure that all the vital functions in your practice run like clock work even when a vital team member is on holiday or off sick. Your entire team should be familiar with key systems and so should you! Systems must be monitored and reviewed, tweak them as much as is needed to ensure the practice is running as productively as possible.
5. Monitor, track and adapt
What is measured improves, this is a very accurate phrase. Decide what key metrics are important to your goals whether that be new patient numbers, a specific type of treatment,, treatment conversion, enquiry conversion, UDA's, turnover, profit.........the list is endless and you don't need to track absolutely everything but you should track what is important to you and what is likely to have the biggest impact on your goals.
Tracking and monitoring metrics is important but what really matters is the subsequent action you take. If something isn't working, you aren't seeing the desired results, talk about this with your team and discover the root cause and adapt your systems, process or whatever else is needed to turn it around.
6. Keep learning
Learning helps to keep your passion going strong, it also helps to keep your team vital and engaged. Never stop learning and developing, it can only serve to further your dream.
