Our employees are people and as we all know; people, in general, are resistant to change. I read an article last week about how more now than ever before people are being labeled with having Neophobia. Defined as “the fear of anything new, and it can be an especially persistent and abnormal fear. In its milder form, it can manifest as the unwillingness to try new things or break from routine.” How do you get your staff on board to make necessary changes in your private practice when they’re afraid of change? 

Episode at a glance:

  • All business owners have a combination of Entrepreneurship, Manager, and Technician personalities in varying degrees as stated by Michael Gerber in the E-Myth Revisited
  • As the owner/entrepreneur/manager of the practice, it is our job to refocus our staff to the reasons why we are doing what we do and the products/results we are getting because of what we do.  
  • If you find yourself in the “need for change,” it’s not too late to start. 
  • It is your job as the CEO to protect the group against those who operate with counter intentions against the leadership.
