This is Dental All-Stars, where we bring you the best in dentistry on marketing, management, and training. Hi friends, welcome to your weekly motivational moment. I’m Eric Vickery, president of coaching at All-Star Dental Academy, and by now you’re a few weeks into this. And last time I talked to you about accountability, what it takes to be a great team player, the traits of that, and I challenge you.

00:30

hey, maybe that’s accountability. And so I thought, why not this week talk about what that really means? I think sometimes we have the wrong fixation on what accountability is. It’s not a punishment. It’s not meant to punish you. You know, when we’re held to a higher standard, it’s not about criticism. We never come to somebody and say, when we’re creating accountability, say, what were you thinking? What were you doing? That’s not what this is about. It’s really about sitting down with each other.

could be a team member to team member, it could be leader to team member, okay? And having someone pour into you and help you mature in your craft. And that’s not something to take personal. It’s not even a negative thing. And oftentimes, I think we perceive accountability as a negative thing. And so I wanna challenge you to be grateful that you have people in your life that care enough about you to pour into you to challenge you.

01:26

And I want to challenge you to look for opportunities to grow, not for ways to hide. So push yourself champion mindset, having accountability, being a great team member, showing those traits means you’re willing to be held accountable. And that means being vulnerable, being transparent. So I want you to share with your team, what are some ways that you want to show them you’re willing to be accountable right now? That way you grow, that way you’re actually getting better.

01:56

I like to say what got you here is not gonna get you there. Anybody that’s not wanting to grow is on the decline and the only people that are declining are coasting. And I know you’re not coasters. All right, have a great week guys.
