So I’m less than a month into this gig and I’m already getting annoyed. Not at my staff - they are amazing as always. With two of the other three managers. Trying to get anything accomplished with them is impossible. The fourth manager (my bff) had a great idea for investing in staff education, created a policy and contract for it, and submitted it to the group for review. Three weeks ago. Monday I had to basically force one of them to read it, but I still don’t have feedback so I’m going to push again.
We need to have a manager meeting bc we have a new dr, one dr going on maternity leave in three weeks, and two new Drs starting. After talking about it for a month I just said I’m scheduling the meeting what day of the week works? And just scheduled it.
I asked what my responsibilities are/will be. Got a generic “increase income, build the practice, blah blah blah” response. So I’ll be fleshing out an email today on that.
And we still don’t have a Dr schedule for may.
She did tell me they brought me on to lead this clinic so she can move to another at least half time. Which is fine with me. But then give me to power to lead. Don’t pussyfoot shit. Luckily my bff and I are on the same page about things, and now the power is balanced. She and I will be at this clinic full time so hopefully we can push things through.
If they thought I was a pushover and would just go along to get along, they are sorely mistaken.
