Dental BossLady Leadership Academy Podcast

Apr 21, 2021

Welcome to Episode 21 of the re-launched Dental Boss Lady Leadership Academy Podcast with Dr. Terri Pukanich. In today's episode I will be sharing a vulnerable side and encourage you to get vulnerable, honest and authentic when it comes to being inside your practice. We will talk about letting go of the struggle to be perfect and all the “shoulds”, and instead have faith you are on the right path. We will also discuss the importance of being vulnerable when things aren't going your way, and especially of showing your team your honest and authentic self. Finally, remember we are worthy even when we make mistakes.
