4. Synergistic Team-Building and Patient Communication (a two-part course)
A) Synergistic Team-Building: The most practical investment you can make in growing your practice is investing in your team. Friction can develop among even the most skilled and personable staff members, leaving them working inefficiently and at cross-purposes. Terry will teach you the five essentials to building a strong, synergistic team, where every team member's work supports and reinforces everyone else's. With everyone pulling in the same direction, you will discover a level of trust, security and confidence you never imagined possible.
B) Exceptional Patient Communication: Superior communication skills help establish relationships in which patients feel valued, understood and empowered to make healthy choices for themselves. Team members trained to communicate more effectively with patients will dramatically increase acceptance of treatment, build patient confidence and trust, and generate enthusiastic referrals. Rediscover just how much the success of your practice hinges on the quality of your patient relationships.
"When a strong group of skilled individuals joins together to do this work, they create more than a synergistic team. They create magic. Guaranteed!

Facilitation mastery is the art of helping patients make well-informed, healthy decisions. Terry will show you how the patient-centered communication skills and organizational aspects of facilitation will dramatically increase productivity and patient satisfaction. Learn how to establish relationships in which people feel valued, understood, and empowered to make healthy choices for themselves. This stimulating and compelling overview of the skills and developmental processes essential to becoming a facilitative team will revolutionize your relationships with your patients and colleagues.
