Respond to team conflict quickly and calmly.

Respond to team conflict quickly and calmly. It may be tempting to ignore conflict, but it’s better to respond right away as a mediator.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Expect the unexpected.

Referral Marketing Strategy Tip: Expect the unexpected. Is your front desk staff prepared for unusual or annoying requests from referring practices? If they’re not it can result in some uncomfortable situations and can hurt referrals. We suggest that you regularly role-play and practice solving different scenarios that could occur (i.e. demanding that a patient be seen instantly when your schedule is completely full) with your front desk staff. Role-playing and even scripting potential problems on a regular basis will help your staff manage through unusual circumstances.

Put scripts into your own words.

Put scripts into your own words. Scripts should not be recited word for word, like a speech you’ve memorized. Learn to communicate the scripted points in a way that’s natural for you. Scripts are training tools that will help you present consistent information and answer patient questions effectively.
