What’s the secret to leading a successful dermatology practice? Jonathan Banta, CEO at Waccamaw Dermatology, was recently featured in Executive Decisions in Dermatology and spotlighted as an ADAM Board Member to share how he leads a thriving team and culture at the sophisticated practice. Mr. Banta works as mentor and looks for opportunities to promote his employee’s potential.
“Successful leaders build great teams and culture through a smart hiring process, developing in-house talent and retaining talent. This can be accomplished by promoting a path of upward mobility, placing value in each employee, delegating responsibilities, building reciprocal trust, giving respect and communicating transparently the goals, objectives and direction of the practice,” says Mr. Banta. “A common mistake amongst managers is to assume an underperforming employee is expendable.”
Mr. Banta currently leads a 5-partner, physician-owned practice with five locations and 11 providers treating all general dermatology issues and skin cancer with Mohs, radiation therapy and in-house dermatopathology. Good listening skills, critical thinking, sound decision making and the right temperament are required skills in not only managing a dermatology practice, but leading a business. “Those skills are paramount in building a great culture that will differentiate your practice from others,” says Mr. Banta.
Waccamaw Dermatology continues to thrive with innovative technology and an outstanding team of board-certified dermatologists, skilled surgeons, expert nurse practitioners, professional physician assistants, adept laser technicians and skillful support staff.
