Speaking

“Ginny has such a great way of connecting with her audience. With a great blend of actionable pearls, to great examples and interesting stories, Ginny was a breath of fresh air during a long conference.”

– Dr. Cole Johnson, MKS Forum Emcee 2017

“Oh, just give it two weeks and everything will get back to normal.” This is the rallying cry of teams responding to the whirlwind of excitement when a dentist or team member returns from a terrific CE program. As a faculty member at a premier continuing education institute for seven years, I’ve spoken with literally thousands of dental professionals about the gap that exists between education & implementation. I teach communication skills to bridge that gap in fun, interactive and impactful programs.

My programs focus on the power of purpose to create positive energy, team work and sustainable success. I’m Ginny Hegarty, dentistry’s human resource expert and I teach doctors and teams to tap into the power of why. Why they get out of bed in the morning, why they do what they do, and how, once they learn how to engage each other’s hearts and hands, they can do so much more than fix teeth.

How to Hire, Develop & Retain the Best People

Here’s the challenge in a nutshell: Dental school is about individual performance, while the practice of dentistry is a team sport. This is the first lesson that dentists learn in the real world and for many dentists, team miscommunication and drama remains a challenge that steals the joy from the practice ownership and limits practice growth. Pivot is a better way, a strategic shift that allows dentists to once again focus on their clinical joy supported by a great practice administrator and a self-directed team. A copy of Ginny’s new book Pivot will be provided for each dentist in attendance.

As a practice leader, your people are either your best competitive advantage or the red lights and speed bumps that slow you down and keep you spinning your wheels, unable to reach your goals. The reality is we now live and work in the fast lane of a Google world where real-time information is plentiful and feedback is instantaneous. Let’s shed some light on the risks and rewards of this new world so we recognize the shift and adjust our strategies for a navigating the expressway to both people and performance success.

Simple Changes ~ Big Rewards
Breakthrough Communication Success:

Smash the Status Quo
Team Meetings that Work!

After all the leading-edge education and the sexy technology are in place, the magic doesn’t happen until the right people engage with each other. Successful communication remains the single biggest obstacle to less stress and better results in business today.

Join us for “Simple Changes – Big Rewards” as we roll up our sleeves to enhance our communication skills to positively impact the patients, the team and YES, the bottom-line. This fun, interactive program is a game-changer.

We know the wisdom of Einstein that taught doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. Yet, staff meetings in most dental practices are still run in much the same way they were 10, 20, 30+ years ago, even as we continue to struggle to get our people on the proverbial “same page.”  It’s time to step outside of our ‘dentistry sandbox’ and embrace innovation and collaboration strategies from Corporate America. “Smash the Status Quo” is a refreshing approach to team development that will breathe new life into your team and your practice.
