FIRST - Watch this video:
We frame everything in our lives. We choose to frame everything either positively or negatively. The frame determines how we view and feel about the things we have framed. Identify how you have framed patients, co-workers and your tasks and decide how to positively re-frame.
4 things I found interesting about this article:
Framing is a choice - so we must also make a choice to re-frame.
No matter your skills, verbal acuity or talent - your frame determines your behavior.
Discussing the negative frames in the morning meeting set’s a negative tone for the rest of the day!
Reset your frames BEFORE the morning meeting so it doesn’t set off the whole office.
HOW CAN WE PUT THIS INTO PLAY IN OUR PRACTICE:
ask yourself some questions think about the frames you have placed on patients you will be seeing that day. Are there negatives frames that need to be changed? What difference would it make if you changed the frame?
Each day make the decision with every patient to change the frame so it changes your behavior.
