Here’s how the call went “Ginny, I’m concerned because everyone is talking about how the economy is affecting their productivity and yet I haven’t seen that change. Now I know that since you’ve been working with us, we’re much more focused and proactive but I can’t help wonder when the other shoe is going to drop and we’ll see productivity slide too.”
This is not inevitable. Some areas of the country are feeling the economic slowdown more than others but that doesn’t mean that you and your practice have to see the numbers fall. My advice to my client and to you is to focus on what you CAN DO for each other and your patients, talk about your philosophy of care and commitment to excellence, keep attending continuing education courses and stay focused on providing the best possible care to your patients. Negative emotions are contagious & they are 7x more powerful than positive emotions. It’s your choice and your opportunity.
