As a clinic owner, having an entrepreneurial mindset is a given, you are doing much more than just seeing patients.
But what about the rest of the clinic staff, both reception & the clinical team.
Promoting an entrepreneurial mindset in every corner of your clinic has its advantages. It can be an opportunity to get an upper hand over your local clinic competitors, to improve your patient services, processes, patient outcomes all to gain and retain current patients and to attract new patients.
So how do you foster an entrepreneurial mindset in your clinic’s culture? The following strategies might be helpful in getting you started. Last time we tackled “Instil A Bias for Action”… see below for today:
Develop Internal Clinic Entrepreneurial Champions
As the clinic head, you can be an entrepreneurial talent hunter within your practice. Try encouraging all of your senior staff & Practice Manager to do the same.
If you or they see a reception staff member or a clinician who shows some entrepreneurial spirit, have your Practice Manager or senior clinician give these clinic staff members some of their personal attention. You can do this by mentoring them, helping them develop their goals & passions and letting them develop and submit any ideas for improvements within the clinic. These reception or clinical staff members can be an example to others and may inspire their fellow clinic workers.
