This week we switched things up and did things a little differently in the office. To minimize confusion and increase efficiency, I basically am in charge of the front office for the week.  I have the responsibility of keeping the schedule, assigning tasks, confirming appointments, authorizing insurance, etc.  It took some time to get used to because there was so much to take into consideration.  I’m basically playing air traffic controller making sure everyone is on top of their assignments so the day runs smoothly.  Once I got the hang of it I realized the most important thing to focus on was communication.  Even though we work off a schedule, things don’t always go according to plan so I have to keep everyone in the loop.  Getting a chance to manage people has given me a new perspective and appreciation on what it takes to run an office.
