The 5 Attributes Of High-Performing Dental Teams

As a practice owner, your success relies on your team working together as high performers. Turnover, stress, and people problems are not new to our industry, and yet, they can be solved by understanding team members as individuals, as a team, and who you are as a practice. So what defines a high-performing team?

To understand high-performing teams, we need to look at them at the individual level first. A high-performance team member, then, is someone who has developed their inward awareness as an individual, a set of personal values, and a purpose in their work.

Dental teams with individual leadership and self-awareness will be much more likely to succeed as a whole and ultimately help you take your practice to the next level. 

As a dental practice manager, it’s essential to empower your team by communicating with empathy, seeking understanding, and relying on their strengths. If you can help your team find that shared purpose and align it with your vision, mission, and values - you will become unstoppable.
