JASPR Feature: How to Avoid Conflicts and Stop Complaints
How to avoid conflicts and stop complaints
By Judy Rosman, RosmanSearch, Inc., 216-256-9020
Avoid conflicts: Stop the “but!”
The word “but” negates whatever has just been said. It’s usually used to follow good news with bad news, with the effect of invalidating the good news. By using “and” instead, the emphasis changes so the good news carries equal weight. Say the following sentences:
“We had great feedback from your interview, but we have several other candidates scheduled to visit.”
“We had great feedback from your interview, and we have several other candidates scheduled to visit.”
It’s easy to avoid a confrontation by changing your “but’s” to “and’s.”

July Webinar: LEAN Recruiting: Successful Physician Search, for Less
Register today for this free webinar held July 24th at 1:00 EST.
Speaker: Steve Marsh, Managing Partner, The Medicus Firm
In the current state of the economy and of the healthcare industry, reducing overhead costs has never been so crucial to the long-term success and survival of a healthcare facility. This includes the operating costs of the physician recruiting department. There are several keys to reducing the per-search costs of your recruitment: (1) decrease cash outlay such as vendors, in-house recruiting staff, supplies, travel. (2) Refine your search process to be more effective and efficient. By improving success rate and tightening your recruiting cycle, you can save valuable time and money. This session will help participants learn how to analyze their recruiting budget and implement the necessary changes to reduce expenditures without sacrificing quality and results in physician recruitment. We’ll provide recruiting budgets and success stories from several medical facilities to help participants manage their own departments more effectively.
Learn how to apply the 5 LEAN principles of process improvement to your physician recruiting department:
1.) Identify what creates value (what works) in your recruiting department
2.) Identify all the steps of the recruitment process/cycle.
3.) Make those processes flow
4.) Accurately identify and Recruit only what is needed
5.) Continually remove/improve wasteful practices or expenditures and strive for perfection.
