Betty’s Bookshelf – Books for a Happier Doctor and Team

Hello Friends,

“That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.”               –Amos Bronson Alcott

Of the 60+ books I read in 2015, I wanted to share with you the 5 that I read during November & December. Why? Because these books especially, were closed with profit. If you’re looking to read for personal growth, to help grow your practice, to share with your team or just for fun… I recommend the following: (In no particular order)

Move Your Bus – Ron Clark

Ready to motivate and inspire your dental team?  Move Your Bus is a fun, educational & quick read. The description on Amazon says: “These easy to implement techniques will inspire employees and team leaders alike to work harder and smarter and drive the organization to succeed.” I agree!

Rising Strong – Brene’ Brown

I chose to include this one because in it are some really smart ways to successfully communicate your feelings. Ways that I believe can greatly help dental team members effectively solve misunderstandings and/or to share thoughts and concerns with one another.

The Ultimate Guide To Doubling & Tripling Your Dental Practice Production

the ultimate guide

If growing your practice is on your “to-do-list” for 2016, read and apply the suggestions shared in this book.

“The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it.” ~James Bryce

There were many gems to carry away from this book. I LOVED it!

Before Happiness – Shawn Achor

before happiness

In ‘Before Happiness’, Shawn Achor, the Harvard researcher, and best-selling author, gives practical strategies for becoming happier backed up by science. (IMHO the science is fascinating!)

Shawn says: “Before we can be happy and successful, we need to create a positive reality that allow us to see the possibility for both.”

Wouldn’t you agree that we all could benefit from seeing the world through a more positive lens?

Hug Your Customers – Jack Mitchell

hug your customers

This is a nice book to read if you’re wanting to attract new patients and retain loyal patients by providing exceptional customer service.

“Books are the training weights of the mind.” -Epictetus

There you have it, my 5 favorite non-fiction books from my bookshelf in 2015.

If you have already read some or all of these books, feel free to share your thoughts on them with me and/or kindly give this post a “like”.  Do you have any good book suggestions for me to add to my 2016 reading list? Please share them in the comments section.
