074: Putting Personality Tests to Good Use

Transitioning from a co-worker to manager position can be stressful! In this episode, Kiera sits down with Ashley Irvin, office manager at Ivory Dental in Sandpoint, Idaho, to discuss what that transition looks like, and how to do it successfully.

Ashley’s been diligent in her managerial role, enough that she helped her practice grow to another location. Discovering her strengths and weaknesses as a leader over the years — many which she talks about with Kiera — led her to be very proud of the accomplishments her office made during the expansion (for example, dealing with personality conflicts but keeping the team completely intact!). Her tips:

  1. Ask for clear job expectations from your doctor

  2. Hold strong to systems

  3. Maximize your management based on office personalities

That’s right, we’re giving you full permission to go online and take a personality test. Understanding results can do wonders for your team! It’s all here in this episode; just press play.
