Happy Holidays & Thank YOU!
The stronger the level of ownership and commitment to the goal, the greater the achievement will be.
Here are your Action Steps moving into 2014:
- Make sure you and your CA’ s have your Winner’s Journals (you can order those right on the website)
- Your Success Planner should be complete with your 2014 Practice Goals.
- Complete your Goals in the 12 areas: Career, Financial, Spiritual, Physical, Mental, Family, Personal Relationships, “Things I want to do”, “Things I want to have”, miscellaneous (whatever doesn’t fit in above), “Things I want to be”, and Feelings.
There are three important aspects to the goals you set:
- The goals must be specific and measurable with a clear time-line for completion
- The goals should be achievable and yet challenging enough so that the outcome obtained from completing the goal is worth pursuing.
- The goals should enable you to grow and develop in the process of working toward them.
- If you were granted three wishes, which goals would you choose to fulfill?
- Which are the top three goals you would like to focus on?
- Which of the goals would you consider to be the most challenging?
- Amongst the goals you have listed, which one would make the biggest difference for you?
As Your Coach My Goal Is Simple….To Help You Reach Yours!
As a CA you are the 1st impression of the office and your doctor, whether it is on the phone or in person. How do you look today? How do you feel today? Are you dressed better than your best dressed patient? Are you a vision of health and wellness? Are you smiling before you answer the phone and as patients arrive and depart from the office? Actually you should be smiling all day! Do you have an attitude of gratitude? Meaning that you are so thankful to do what you do that it shows in your work performance and most importantly in your body language?
Always remember that it is you that your practice members look to as a guide on their journey to health. Be compassionate. Be a good listener, and a great communicator. Be a leader, and a teacher. When you set a standard your practice members will look up to you and respect you. Having their respect makes your job easier.
Be the best you can be everyday!
Your ability to maintain control of your business and life depends on how well you can manage your time (and manage others). It’s easy to fall behind while giving time and attention to people and things that hold you back. It’s not as hard as you might think to stay on track and get things done!
Here are a few time management tips that may help you:
- Check and respond to your email once a day. I prefer checking it at the end of each day. That way, nothing gets in the way of me getting things done. It eliminates stress and a lot of my daily distractions. Manage expectations. NEVER immediately respond to an email. That way no one expects an instant response. This also decreases the amount of emails coming in without creating upset.
- Let most incoming cell phone calls go to voice-mail.
- Don’t text.
- Plan your workdays and say “no” to anyone or anything that threatens your ability to do what you have to do.
- Take a look at the top 3-5 things that take up most of your time. What can you systematize and/or automate? Can some or all of it be delegated? What can you eliminate all together?
- Do you always feel behind? Take one project at a time. Get it done. Then go to the next. Feeling behind is typically caused by slow implementation and completion.
- Make sure that your daily “To-Do” list is sequenced properly. Take in consideration things like your energy levels throughout the day, other obligations that you have and the time needed to achieve completion. “Done” is all that matters.
Make things happen on your terms or spend most of your time and energy responding and reacting to things that happen to you. It truly is your choice.
