15 Minutes to Excellence: The lone CEO

August 7, 2013 -- Dentists should take leadership cues from the CEOs of other businesses in order to become more successful and satisfied in today's challenging environment, according to Dr. Don Deems.

In this latest episode of "15 Minutes to Excellence," Dr. Deems shares his thoughts on how adjusting your leadership style to be more like that of a CEO offers many advantages to practices large and small.

"Things have changed a lot from the days even when I first started practicing, when many practices were like family mom and pop operations," Dr. Deems said. "Now there is so much third-party involvement, rules and regulations, litigation ... so a lot of things don't work anymore like they used to. If a doctor will look at his practice and say, "Look, I need to run this more like a CEO would run it,' they will have much greater success and satisfaction."

Dr. Deems, known as the Dentist's Coach, is a professional personal and business coach and a practicing dentist in Little Rock, AR. Since 2005, he has been annually named to Dentistry Today's Top Leaders list and is the author of several books, the most recent titled The Dentist's Coach: Build a Vibrant Practice and the Life You Want.
