2018 is quickly approaching and that means hard-to-keep New Year’s Resolutions are just around the corner. Perhaps this year, you can divert from the traditional “lose 10 pounds” and instead commit to reading books that will make a lasting impact in your practice, far past next year. Here is a short list to get you started:
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
If your plan for next year is to create a bigger, better practice and to grow your team, consider reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This classic is the foundation for which many personal and professional growth books are based. Read, understand and absorb the seven habits of Stephen R. Covey, and you will be primed for greatness in 2018 and beyond. Plus, these habits apply to work and life, making it a great read for anyone in a leadership role, be it a business owner or a parent.
Think and Grow Rich
If your plan is focused on creating wealth, read Napoleon Hill’s, Think and Grow Rich. Another true classic, this book provides everything you need to get into the mindset and practice of creating wealth for you and your practice. This book will help you to identify everyday behaviors and thought processes (both conscious and unconscious) so that you can consistently shift them to those of abundance, opportunity and success.
Why Can’t I Hire Good People?: Lessons on How to Hire Better
If staffing and team retention was a challenge this year, consider reading Beth Smith’s book, Why Can’t I Hire Good People?: Lessons on How to Hire Better. Smith clearly outlines how to hire powerful and passionate individuals who are a perfect fit. The right team will put your patients at-ease, help your practice to achieve more success and allow you to feel fully supported by a qualified staff.
