How do you know when you’ve done a good job?

We ask this question of every team member we work with in our private in-office coaching programs. No matter the location or size of the practice, the answers really aren’t all that different.

‘I know when my patients request me for their next visit’

‘I know when I see great results after perio therapy’

‘I know when we finish on time and I feel good about the work I’ve done’

And then there’s the elusive…

‘I know when my boss tells me I did a great job today’

Setting clear expectations and frequent verbal appreciation are the cornerstones of great leaders. And leadership always starts with the doctor, right?

On this month’s Hygiene Profits Mastermind call, I interview leadership expert and coach Bob Spiel on his concept of Upside Down Leadership. I’ve known Bob for years and seen his leadership skills in action with his clients as well as fellow dental speaking and consulting colleagues.
