We as business owners grow through the pressures placed upon us in our positions of authority, and our team members grow in a similar manner.

The entrusting of progressive levels of authority to our personnel allows our team the chance to grow through the pride and challenge associated with being accountable to others, while expanding our own capacity through the delegation of responsibility. It is truly a win-win.

Put some thought into those on your team that show prowess as future leaders within your company and start early with a gradual increase in authority in order to achieve and maintain their interest, engagement, and effort within your practice.
