Training Can Not Be A Drag

In talking with managers many times I find that they think training is a drag or pain. It takes too much time and they often have complaints about their employees whether they are new or old in the “lack of how they catch on.” I know that training takes time and often we as managers […]

The Benefits Of Sharing At Work

“The impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive. Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.” ~ Annie Dillard In my years of working with other managers, I have found that some are not willing […]

Peak Performance Management

If you have been in a management position at any time in your employment life, I am sure you will agree that it is a position not for the “faint of heart.” I have managed a medical practice for over 23-years now and the challenges along with the victories have been many. It took me […]

Start With Happy Employees

A couple of years ago our practice found itself in the position of needing to hire a couple of new staff members. Now, the hiring process is not one of my favorite things to do because many times for one reason or another it doesn’t work out. I had been told that it takes going […]

Bring the Joy

If I had to come up with one word to describe my two decades of being a medical office manager and team leader it would be, “Persistence.”  Without it I would have given up and miss out on all of the great experiences I have had with those I have been privileged to work with.  […]

Do You Work In A Medical Practice? How is it going?

Things are quite different now as we are reopening and trying to keep everyone safe practicing physical distancing and extra sanitization of the office as each patient leaves the practice.
