One of the biggest challenges a leader faces is influencing their team, getting the best out of them and of course getting them to do jobs willingly with a smile on their face.
How many times have you ever woken up in the middle of the night thinking about a difficult team member or how you can sell an idea to the dentist? If this is you, then don’t worry you are not on your own. There are probably hundreds of Practice Managers up and down the country facing the same challenges.
As far back as 1936 Dale Carnegie was aware of these challenges when he wrote his now legendary best-selling book ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’. This has sold over 30 million copies worldwide. In the book he wrote about 36 human relation skills to get people to like you and of course techniques on how to influence people.
The good news is that you can get every team member to do exactly what you want them to do and in exactly the right way, sometimes even going that extra mile for the practice. Outstanding leaders are not born, they are made. This is your time.
Here are a few tips to make that happen:
1.Whenever you are selling an idea to one of your team members, there has to be something in it for them. You have to sell the idea to them. What are the benefits to the practice and also the benefit to them for undergoing the task? People will only do something willingly if there is something in it for them.
2.Make them feel that the idea is theirs and not yours. This is the ultimate skill to master, because people will go the extra mile if they think the idea is theirs. Very few people like to be told what to do, but if they think it is their idea, then watch your team fly.
3.Once you have agreed a task has to be done, ask them if they have any ideas on how it should be carried out. Listen attentively and you will be surprised by how many good ideas your team will come up with. They might even come up with a few ideas that you had not thought about.
