Supporting your contract clinicians
There is often movement in private practices that work with contract employees. They may come, gain experience and expertise, and move on again.
This is natural and normal, and this movement can even be beneficial to the practice and both the owner and the contract clinician.
When you’re deciding that you’re going to step out and do something else, or you need to leave, just communicate that with me, and let’s see what that looks like … maybe we can be referral sisters.Dr. Futrell
Even when contract clinicians decide to move on, it doesn’t have to mean an official goodbye. You can both continue working together by referring to one another.
Pay it forward
There are many ways that private practice owners can support and care for their clinicians, and pay it forward.
Consider offering supervision, be open to sharing wisdom and information, and offer guidance to those who work with you and for you.
Whatever you need to know, I’m not one of those people [that says], “Well, I’m not sharing any information. I’m the [main] person” … like, hey, I probably give too much!Dr. Futrell
Help the people that come through your door
You don’t have to give everything to your employees, and there definitely is a fine line between helping someone and feeding someone information that they are not working to understand themselves.
However, have an open mind, heart, and hand with those around you. If you have resources to share and ways to raise people up – while running a successful business – then do those things.
Pay it forward, because there were probably many people that helped you too when you were starting as well.
[Decide] first what it is that you want to do and how you want to do that. How [do] you want your name and your company to be represented, and how much of the help [do] you feel like you could give someone without hindering them or making them dependent on you? Dr. Futrell
