Start Taking Back Control of Your Private Practice

As private practice owners, we must continually view ourselves as the CEO both of both our practice, and even our entire lives!

One of the most common areas we see private practice owners get into significant trouble is relinquishing certain aspects of decision-making—and, thus, control over their futures.

Perhaps you find yourself in this position and are uncertain as to what to do.

In the beginning, signs such as unhappiness in the office and poor attitudes among staff manifest. These are common, and then come the ultimate stresses like decline in revenues and expanding overhead.

Left unchecked, this becomes just like a malignancy. The longer a situation like this goes without treatment, the more difficult it may be to eradicate.
So often this is the result of an incompetent or overaggressive office manager. Just like in any organization, management must continually be responsive to the needs in the direction of the private practice owner. Too often, as a result of laziness or lack of focus, staff loses direction, creating a myriad of problems for the private practice owner very quickly

As private practice owners, we must continually view ourselves as the CEO both of both our practice, and even our entire lives!

In on a regular basis, politely but firmly make sure that subordinates, including management staff, understand completely who is the CEO, and that they are responsible for top level decisions.
The first place to begin is to make sure that you have 100% compliant staffing and office policies and systems in place. This is where excellent practice management systems and consulting go such a long way.

One policy that also should be instituted is the requirement that all staff re-read the owners manuals and policies.

Lastly, if you find yourself going through this dilemma more than occasionally, you really need to take a hard look at the entire organization of your private practice—and possibly even your private life!

Remember, just like health problems, business problems are far easier to prevent than they are to treat.
