Practice Management News for Psychotherapists
Making Sense of Your Therapy Practice Leadership Vision
Every private practice has a leader, even a solo practice. For anyone who owns, manages, or is considering starting a private practice, developing leadership skills could be the difference between success or failure. We have all heard the clichés about what it means to be a good leader: be decisive, hire great people, be a good delegator, listen to your team, share your vision, and be inspirational. Actually implementing these tactics into your daily practice management routine, however, can be a challenge.
Every year the nature of private practice is evolving. Changes in insurance coverage, regulations, technology, office staff, practice structure, and marketing needs are just a few factors that can complicate managing a private practice every single day.
When the practice is in constant flux, and you feel like the walls are caving in, how can you really be that ever-inspirational leader?
Being decisive: Making smart decisions may not be easy, but the success of your practice depends upon them. Believing in your goals and maintaining a passion for your business can drive good decisions and drive your team members to make smart decisions, as well. While you push yourself and your staff forward, however, you must also be ready to address mistakes and the problems that may arise. Good leaders recognize that everyone makes mistakes, and great leaders take accountability for all mistakes, even those of others.
