Episode : #359: How to Fix Complaining

Podcast Description

A listener recently wrote to the Dental A-Team podcast, curious about stopping the complaining among dental assistants. This is a VERY common problem in practices, and luckily, it’s pretty straight forward to fix.

Kiera shares ideas for self reflection as a leader (what standards are you tolerating to take hold in your business?), how to respond to a complaint, and communicating over confronting.

Being direct is scary, but it’s the most efficient form of communication in a practice like this. If you tolerate complaints, complaints will happen. This episode will help you tolerate only the best leadership standards.
