In this episode we pick Dr. Sullivan's brain on how he pays his employees. Get this, he pays them all by commission, from the assistants to the front office, everyone has a commission paid position. And it is brilliant. Listen in as Richard Low (from Shared Practices Podcast), Sandy Pardue (from Classic Practice Management), Ashley Joves (from Smile & Company) and I pick his brain, give him scenarios where this may or may not work, and how he runs his practice. Here are some key points you want to look out for:

  • How Sully is paying his whole team on commission.
  • How to add a team member with this type of pay structure (commission based).
  • Is your Front Office really overloaded and overwhelmed, or are they just making excuses?
  • Employees only put about 80%-85% effort in reality, how can you squeeze out a little more?
  • Start making your team have a "OWNER" type of mentality.
  • Patients buy what they want, not what they need.

Let me know what your takeaways are when you have finished listening to this episode and my question to you is:

How many team members (employees) do you have?
