Are you considering making a change in your practice? The strongest practices are those that have mastered the process for making change happen. As a leader, you must help to build a culture of commitment around any change initiative.
In this episode, Aspire founder and leadership consultant Randy Hall discuss leading organizational change with Dr. Julie Reck, the owner and founder of Veterinary Medical Center of Fort Mill in South Carolina. They share their experiences being involved in change that gained support and commitment from their teams and were ultimately successful. They also share some unsuccessful change initiatives and lessons learned. A few key points covered in this episode include:
- Get your team involved in change early. This will give them time to think about the change, understand how the change will affect them, and commit to the change.
- Understand resistance. Resistance shows up when people feel that change is being done to them, rather than with their input.
- Capitalize on opportunities created by change. Although some changes, like industry shifts, cannot be controlled. However, you can use these unexpected changes as opportunities to propel your practice forward.
