Often the dentist’s future vision is limited because he or she just doesn’t know what is possible. Understanding the first three core concepts, being open to new ways of doing things and then just letting your imagination go with childlike freedom will help create a powerful future vision.
An effective leader will then communicate that vision to others and inspire them to follow along.
However many, if not most, doctors have no real goals or plans for implementing new technology. Without a plan they are prey waiting to be consumed by the most aggressive salesman. They go to a tradeshow and see some new technology that they get excited about. Then they buy it randomly, without any idea of how they’ll incorporate it into their overall practice’s philosophy and systems.
One of my missions is to help dentists see what is possible and then to create a future vision.
