Seize the Moment
Running a medical practice is no easy feat whether you are just starting out or you believe you are a seasoned veteran. What defines a successful or-ganization? What makes one practice more appealing than the next? Why do some prac-tices have physicians who care while others have physicians who are so detached from real-ity?
John D. Rockefeller said, “Good management consists in showing average people how to do the work of superior peo-ple.” The majority of practices feel they are at a disadvantage because of the workers they have to choose from in their local community. Many times I hear “this is the best we can get, and we are lucky to have what we have.” That’s a cop-out! A great manager motivates ordinary people to do the ex-traordinary.
