“As an Office Manager, I’ve seen a great difference in my practice since starting with Sharyn. Three years ago our staff was in turmoil with a lot of infighting and gossip and some jealousy directed towards me.
I had given up because everything I did was judged. Now I have learned to have more one-to-one communication and by being more vulnerable with individuals I found my leadership voice. As a team, we’re all focused on the same goals.
Last year, in August we produced $88,000. This year we’re on track to produce $111,000 this month. I know it’s because we learned how to follow through with patients and communicate our expectations while building our systems.
Sharyn has gotten us out of our comfort zone and inspired us to dream bigger and it works.”
“I have benefitted from Sharyn Weiss’ dental practice consulting expertise for more than ten years. Her impact on my practice has been pivotal in the success of my practice, as well as my growth as a leader, as a manager, and as a human being.
Back in 2007, I was 20 years into my career. I was satisfied with my practice, but had reached a plateau both financially and professionally, and I wanted something more. I turned to Pride Institute, where I met Sharyn Weiss. It’s scary to commit to an expensive consulting program, but what I found about Pride Institute and Sharyn Weiss was that they work the same way we diagnose a patient: before they spoke, they listened.
Instead of applying a cookie-cutter program to my office, they asked questions to help me define what I stand for, what my vision is, then made recommendations and gave me skills to support my vision.
So what are the nuts and bolts? While at Pride Institute, Sharyn essentially wrote and revised their entire curriculum. Of course, Sharyn has specific skills and actions for your staff to learn and improve your practice’s operating systems: Recall, New Patient, Treatment Acceptance, Financing, Scheduling, Hygiene.
It has been said that you can only manage what you can measure, and Sharyn can help you to develop numerical metrics to analyze your practice’s system performance and finances.
Sharyn’s most remarkable strength is in helping you understand how you communicate and mis-communicate with your staff, your patients, and even with yourself. You will understand what leads others to think the way they think, say the things they say, and do the things they do, as well as what you can do to influence what those people think, say, and do.
The return on investment of working with Sharyn is a no-brainer. Of course my practice is vastly more profitable than ten years ago. What I have paid for Sharyn’s time and expertise over the years has been paid back many, many times over. Equally important to me, however, is that Sharyn’s program has helped me grow not only as a dentist, but also as a self-aware human being.
I understand myself and the people around me much better than ten years ago. I have better relationships with my patients, with my staff, with my family, and with the community at large. Even my staff members have told me that their lives outside the practice have improved as a result of things they learned from Sharyn.
Now my practice is busier, less stressful, and vastly more profitable, than ever before I am able now to conduct my practice based on what I believe and what I stand for, rather than reacting to what the world throws at me. I used to work in my practice, but now I know also to work on my practice. I used to manage, now I lead.
I used to feel like every day I was herding cats, but now I have a cohesive, self-directed team. I used to have policies, now my staff and I have shared beliefs. I used to work from a place of need and expediency, now I work from a place of passion and meaning. I used to earn a living, now I have a quality of life. I feel a sense of peace and control over my surroundings that I could have come to only with Sharyn’s help.
Lots of dental consultants can help you fill your schedule and reduce your overhead. Few improve your life. Sharyn Weiss is a consultant for the thinking dentist.”
“Sharyn was our dental consultant for the past 5 years. She took our dental team from good to great. She is well respected from our dental team due to her ability to communicate and relate to each individual, thus inspiring them to grow within their position. This individual growth then allowed the team to grow which created an outstanding environment for patients to experience.
Training a dental team is very challenging. Sharyn met this challenge and succeeded. She has the ability to bring a team together. She recognizes all the different personalities and makes each individual realize the importance of team work, which creates a cohesive unit. Sharyn makes people feel comfortable to be around her, and this encourages open communication and interaction.
Sharyn is very productive with the time she has and is also very accessible if any questions or concerns need to be addressed.
“I have the privilege of working with Sharyn and she has been instrumental in my personal development, my growth as a leader and training me and my staff to provide the highest level of customer care. During our regularly scheduled telephone conversations, Sharyn reviews our business performance indicators and provides feedback and analysis on the areas that were successes and challenges.
Throughout these calls, Sharyn provides training on a variety of topics essential to my development as a business leader. Training consisted of topics ranging from verbal skills, attracting and retaining new patients, improving business systems and developing staff.
My staff were very receptive to Sharyn’s training style and I always received extremely positive feedback from my staff regarding Sharyn’s ability to deliver information in an easy to understand yet effective manner. Sharyn was able to communicate the material in such a way that my staff felt comfortable and empowered to utilize those skills the following day! Sharyn’s depth of knowledge is very impressive. I find that she consistently utilizes new techniques and materials.
I attribute a significant portion of my business growth to Sharyn’s training and consulting skills. Prior to working with Sharyn, my confidence to lead my team of employees was very low. However, Sharyn is fantastic at providing the tools, resources and training to facilitate my growth. Sharyn was able to walk me through some challenging situations with my staff and provided the knowledge and confidence to navigate those challenges. Her insight is invaluable and her calm yet confident demeanor inspires me to become a better leader.
Over the years, I have worked with a number of consultants/trainers and Sharyn ranks at the top. She truly is a very talented individual.”
