1hr 30mins Verifiable CPD, 1 Module, 8 Learning Resources

Course Summary

This tutorial on creating Champions League winning dental teams is kindly provided by Chris Barrow from his Extreme Business Academy.

In his 20+ years of working with dental clients he has observed that less than 5% have reported their team are on the bus and on fire.He spends much more time dealing with the consequences when one or more team members are creating more problems than solutions.

Have you ever been in that situation?In this tutorial Chris looks at 5 essential steps in creating a Champions League team:

– Assessing Performance and Behaviour and making decisions based on your conclusions;

– The ideal schedule for team communications;- How to replace appraisals (a chore) with the Personal Progress Interview (PPI) (an opportunity);

– The importance of the daily huddle in team spirit;

– Using Edward de Bono’s “6 thinking hats” to engage your team in the big decisions that matter.

Along with a 50-minute video from Chris, you can access his Powerpoint slides and 6 PDFs to share with your managers and team from the resources provided in the course module.
