18 Jul Reducing Stress
It can put excessive pressure and urgency on your team when micromanagement to correct perceived problems only creates other oppressive conditions. Stress causes mistakes, accidents, errors of omission and commission that in general creates joyless, unproductive work for you and your team.
Facing problems head on and not avoiding them, such as establishing treatment and compensation acceptance by patients upfront to avoid future financial issues, helps you gain control over your practice. With good systems, firm policies, thoroughly managed finances and overhead, and surrounding yourself with a self-motivated team of entrepreneurial thinkers who take on responsibilities and contribute solutions to solve problems rather than creating them, stress is greatly reduced and kept at a manageable day-to- day level.
