There is no doubt that the definition of leadership is changing everywhere. Both small and large business models show that the “good old days” of the traditional hierarchy, where one person delivers the orders, directions and demands with the expectation that they are followed, without question, no longer works.

Today, the most impactful style of leadership is one of a “Synergistic” leader who collaborates with the group to access their input and ideas while maximizing their collective talents and strengths.  We are better together when we combine efforts and share a vision and goals.

Time management is defined as a way to find the time for all the things you want and need to get accomplished. It helps you decide which things will get done now and which tasks can wait.  Learning how to manage your time, activities, and commitments is prioritization;  making the habit to focus on the most relevant and important things first.  

A common time management trap many people fall into is getting to the end of the day and not knowing where the time went. They overestimate the amount of time they have available OR underestimate the amount of time each activity takes to complete and become overcommitted.

 

An effective way to organize the to-do list of many things that must be accomplished in a day is to analyze our tasks, map out a plan to complete projects with timeframes and, then, analyze what are the URGENT activities or tasks that demand immediate attention today and are related to deadlines in the moment.

The role of a Treatment Coordinator is a job description that is having significant impact throughout North American dental practices. Practices that have a dedicated Treatment Coordinator are experiencing a 15-20% increase in case acceptance.
 
The role of a Treatment Coordinator is significant in showing value to the patient, in the administrative area, as a check-out choice in a private environment with the patient, to translate the clinical terms into lay terms.   

This helps the patient connect the treatment plan to their life, and review the benefits and consequences which drives patient acceptance of financial arrangements and scheduling.  

Today’s patient is much more sophisticated regarding how much they know about dentistry and how they make decisions about their dental health.  The number one reason patients say ‘NO’ to dentistry is lack of perceived value.  They don’t see the need because they don’t own the problem or they don’t see the need as all is ok for now, or they are unaware of prevention as opposed to repair.

Does simply being near, or watching, stressful situations make you uncomfortable?

A team at Saint Louis University recently created “secondhand stress” to study whether it could be as contagious as a cold. They had strangers observing a man nearby who was defending himself against a false accusation. The question: Would the stranger catch the accused man’s stress?

After measuring the stranger’s heart rates and cortisol levels, the researchers found that a person could catch another person’s stress, even if they had never met.
