I was taking a few moments to get connected with my Facebook friends- that’s a nice way of saying I was procrastinating from doing something I’m not looking forward to doing- and came across a post about marching bands and Rolling Stone magazine. Peeked my interest so I followed the proverbial bunny trail and watched the videos and read the article. I was shocked and amazed at what I watched. Having been a band geek for all of my school years I appreciate the sounds and movement of a great marching band. What I noticed was far more…it was a lesson for every dental professional to learn.
Precision- A team that knows exactly what their role is, how their role works within the team, where they are supposed to be and when. Precision is the workings of a team that has mastery over their processes and systems while understanding the big picture of their role within the team.
Communication- Providing constant feedback and praise for in-the-moment adjustments allows the team to navigate through the ebb and flows of the office.
Innovation- When there is a problem, they quickly adapt and innovate solutions.
Flow- Weaving in and out through intricate poses and situations effectively. They trust each other will be where they need to be, when they need to be, doing what they need to be doing.
Sharing- Everyone gets to have the spotlight. They celebrate each section, department, and give people an opportunity to shine.
