How I know you're different

If you’re reading this, I know you’re the type of person who doesn’t want to be ‘just another associate osteopath’. Chances are you want to do more with your career. You’re on the right path, keep reading, learning and taking control of your career.

1- Working With Your Osteopathy Principle

I’ve already covered problems within this including How To Get Your Osteopathy Principle Onside With Your Marketing Ideas. It’s important to complete this step as bringing new ideas and possible positive changes to your principle can demonstrate that you’re an integral part of the practice.

From now on, let’s assume that the principle is good for you and the other associates to do as they wish.

2- Try Having Regular Meetings

If you’ve got a few ideas, but you’re concerned about not including other associates, try this.

Teamwork and unity create great clinics. One solution is to run the concept by your principle first and actively encourage the idea of everyone meeting together to include everyone. Then you come across as a team player, wanting to see everyone thrive. Furthermore, it gives people a chance to not take part.

Take a look at How Important Meetings Are For Successful Osteopathic Clinics.

What if clinic meetings are not going to be a part of the clinic?

There is no reason why you and the other associates can’t take the lead and meet with each other, or talk via group chat, to discuss your plans. You don’t have to meet in the clinic every time. Make it interesting every month by choosing different places!

3- Communication Is Key

It’s all about actually talking and listening to what everyone is saying. If you all feel that you can talk openly and share the workload, then everyone is far more likely to thrive.

Decide between you who’s responsible for what based on each other’s strengths. If there’s an area of marketing an Osteopathic clinic someone is not strong at, ensure you all take it on together.

On a side note, don’t gossip. This seems obvious, but it’s an easy trap to get into before you even realise. Staying away from gossip builds your trustworthiness and reputation. Do this successfully and trust your opinion when suggesting innovative marketing ideas for the clinic.
