I'v recently been promoted from staff retail pharmacist to pharmacy operations manager of my company (8 store chain). I love the concept of routine one on ones - the problem is retail pharmacists have to legally be in the pharmacy at all times AND our company only staffs one pharmacist per location at any given moment. Getting interrupted can become frustrating and is often unavoidable (since patients need there medicine, doctor need to call in prescriptions, etc.).
Is it worth trying? If not, is there another model that may work for me better? My goal is to simply stay in contact so direct reports feel they know me and I know them.
Everyone, thanks in advance for any feedback!
