Is your staff clear on what their role and function is in your practice? If not… that could be hindering your growth and success.
In this second episode of the six-week Accountability Equation™ podcast series, I focus on the first A of the five A's, which is "assemble". I explain how assembling the right team and clearly defining roles and responsibilities is crucial for setting up accountability in your practice. I even provide an overview of a helpful matrix that outlines the core responsibilities for each role in your business. Join me as I discuss:
The difference between roles and functions: Roles are specific positions in the organization with their own set of responsibilities and expectations, while functions are the tasks and responsibilities within those roles.
Why job titles and organizational charts are not helpful in providing clarity and understanding of responsibilities.
The core roles and functions of a group practice including: visionary, integrator, sales and marketing, operations (administrative, HR, clinical), finance, and DEI.
Steps to avoid building roles and functions that keep you stagnant by envisioning where your business should be, rather than where it currently stands.
How spending time in the assemble phase helps clarify roles, reduce confusion, and promote collaboration and teamwork.
Don’t start setting up your accountability system in your practice without first understanding this stage. This step is crucial as it provides clarity to everyone in the practice about their areas of authority.
