Tips for Overworked Private Practice Owners

Because I so often hear from other practice owners, “I’m just spread so thin,” I want to give you a couple of tips that have helped me not feel so overworked. First, I want to let you know you’re not alone. We all feel like that at times.

To stop feeling overworked, what you need is a leadership team you trust, one that you’ve trained and mentored. They need to possess the same ideas, beliefs, and goals as yours. To further develop a team that supports you, write policies, procedures, and checklists for your whole team to follow. Then you’ll start having the kind of support that relieves your overwork.

Develop a Strong Leadership Team in Your Private Practice

The first step is to identify your highest-performing staff to train and mentor. Gradually, you’ll feel comfortable delegating some authority to them which relieves you of some tasks. You’re not delegating your responsibility for the practice. You can always check in and make sure things are going well. But management becomes easier when you’re not having to do everything yourself. 

Once you can begin delegating, you can spend more time creating goals and working out how to achieve those goals. As your practice expands, you provide more help for the children in your community. 

In the book Keys to Private Practice Success, you’ll learn many more very specific skills to enable you to organize your practice better so you don’t feel so overworked. The whole book is great but you might really enjoy Section Three which helps you see how to organize the whole activity so you have more support.
