Any proposed changes to an organization’s existing culture inevitably conjure the “10/80/10” rule, which states that 10% of employees will actively embrace the change, 80% will be neutral or “fence sitters” and 10% will actively resist or fight the change. This is not surprising because it’s human nature to view change as either an opportunity or a threat, and people respond to change in many different ways: personally, professionally, socially, etc.
Most physician practices and other health organizations have employees who are either naturally skilled at serving as a catalyst for change or who have been explicitly charged with bringing about organizational change, i.e., change agents.
So how do you go about becoming a beneficial change agent in your own practice or health organization?
Serving as a change agent enables physicians to share their valuable perspective and play a direct role in positively shaping and transforming the culture in their medical practice, hospital or health system. Merritt Hawkins’ recruiters are ready to share their own extensive experience with placing physicians in rewarding temporary or career positions.
