January is the ideal time to determine what success means for you.
This means gathering the knowledge to prepare for change if needed, adopting proven real-life strategies and tools that manage energy, enhance awareness, encourage self-discovery and build a team of leaders.
Ever wondered what it takes to be a successful manager? To be someone who has it all; strong leadership presence, a high performing team, financial freedom, solid relationships, an exciting career, boundless enthusiasm and maintained energy over decades.
The answer is vast and multi-layered. Regardless of the author, expert or system, one common message screams out loud and clear; leadership is a DAILY job. The examples, measurements, outcomes, level of fulfilment or work/life balance shows that the first mandatory step is to look within yourself, with openness, to the “intent” of our behaviour and how it “impacts” others.
These are some of the key areas of focus that are directly related to why and how leaders achieve long term success.
The Ideal Management model provides structured communication, effective conflict resolution for a drama-free workplace and confidence to solve problems in real time.
Prioritizing your time and focus on patient services to align with the vision and goals of the practice, including the involvement of the entire team, will create a growing and better future.
You gain confidence and become proficient by committing to continued learning and persistence. Invest in yourself!
