So here we are almost at the end of January, time is flying by faster than I would like to acknowledge.
So as you can see, January has been an interesting month. Exeter was affected by the worst snowfall I have seen in the nineteen years I've lived here. We suffered some disruption at work from patients not being able to travel and some staff members at the practice couldn't get in because they were snowed in in small villages that did not see the gritters for several days. Anyway after two days things got back to normal, but one thing stayed and that was the cold.
I have had a productive month, enjoyed rebuilding and improving smiles, and just generally improving my patient's dental health.
My business partners and management team have been working hard with Clare from Move Ahead Coaching and we are looking forward to unveiling our plans and vision to our staff and fabulous team next month. Here's a picture of some of our team taken in the Autumn last year.
Tomorrow will be my last day of work, Thursday a rest day and on Friday I am looking forward to meeting Kevin Rose of Azimuth Coaching and Mark Oborn at a course at Devon Dental Specialists in Ashburton. I think this will be a great day.
One quick recommendation before I go, I have just finished reading A Man on the Moon by Andrew Chaikin. This is a brilliant book and shows what an organisation is capable of with a coherent vision, strong leadership and an amazing team.
One last thing, another photograph of sunnier times. Roll on the warmer weather.
