Too many groups—even fairly large ones—let just a few staff members’ personal objections paralyze even logical business decisions. In effect, the company’s best decisions are stifled by individual priorities. Approach each major practice decision with emphasis on the bigger picture, rather than individual demands.
Even if some staff members don’t like the choices, they can’t ignore them. The choices made affect everyone, and most will find that what serves the practice best will serve them best as well in the long run. Once the group has made the business decision, you can help individuals adapt their own priorities to that decision. That’s a lot better than a few individuals trying to force the decision to fit their desires.
