Build your relationships first….then your dentistry. ~ Bob Barkley

Leverage Creativity

Posted on

As human beings, we are blessed with some pretty extraordinary gifts: the ability to dream, to imagine, to conceptualize, to visualize, and to create.

Our intuition enables us to see patterns, make connections, and empower us to solve problems both rationally and intelligently.

Given that factual analysis is “left brained”, realistic, and matter-of-fact, we tend to prefer its concreteness over the abstract nature of our intuition and synthesis. We prefer things “as they are” over “as they should be”.

This tendency presents a challenge to us dentists and other leaders in dentistry, because as techniques, materials, and thinking rapidly change around us, a higher need for creativity and innovation needs to follow.

Consequently -now more than ever -we need to embrace and exercise our intuitive abilities. We need to be asking “What if?” and “Why not?” at least as often as we ask “Where are we now?”

We must step back and look at our circumstances from multiple points of view and tap into the wisdom inherent in our Care Team as well.

And through this means a preferred future can be created in a marketplace which seems at first blush chaotic and unpredictable.

There are definite trends emerging – and there are still many needs and wants unmet almost everywhere.

Tapping into the creative power of your team will help address challenges and opportunities in ways which make your future positively remarkable.

And therein your future lies if you want to grab it.
