In this week’s episode I interviewed Dr. Shakila Angadi.
Dr. Shakila Angadi is the owner of Palmer Smile Design in Easton, PA. As a mother, dentist and wife, she has strived to achieve balance in her personal and professional life for many years.
After practicing dentistry for over 10 years, Dr. Angadi realized that empathetic communication and self-awareness techniques were the key to expanding her practice exponentially.
After being coached by leaders in dentistry and emotional intelligence, she was determined to expand her professional expertise to combine the two. Bridging the gap between professionalism and emotional agility, she is working on many projects to help dentists (and women) communicate and react with emotional awareness to improve the quality of their lives.
- Why hitting rock bottom was the best thing that could have happened to Shakila and the mindset shift that it takes to bounce back and up-level in almost all areas of life
- How perfectionism and the fear of failure can stifle creativity and problem solving – and why this is very prevalent problem amongst dentists
- The importance of having a mindset of admitting that you don’t know everything and seeking help where you need it
- Why investing in yourself is so important and how Shakila invested in herself
- How essential taking care of our minds and exercising our mental skills is in order to identify emotions and be open and aware of our surroundings
- The changes that Shakila has made in her dental practice to foster an environment based on positivity, empathy, gratitude and fantastic communication
- Social media strategies and how Shakila has used social media to grow her practice by attracting like-minded people in both her patients and team members
Shakila runs a Facebook Group called Emotional Intelligence for the (Modern) Mom – a group where like-minded moms (not exclusively dentists) share tools and tips for shifting mindset to improve their lives.
