What We Believe
We believe small businesses are where success in life can be best experienced.
- Where personal and professional growth occurs.
- Presses us to accept our Strengths, Weaknesses, Talents, Blind Spots.
- Forces us to learn to work with our and our team’s S-W-T-BLSP
- Pushes us to grow in ways we didn’t imagine (much like having a family!)
- Pushes us to accept ourselves as leaders.
- Teaches us to “think and act outside our comfort zone.”
- Teaches us to think in terms of constant improvement.
We believe Leadership & Culture are the core of success
- Leadership is the core of everything that is worthwhile
o Servant leadership drives growth. Helps people become their best.
o You either grow or die … there is no steady state.
o There are breaks, seasons, failures, successes. Patience smooths the ride.
Constant improvement is crucial… especially the small steps.
- Culture makes life and work worth it and fun.
o Culture is how we experience good leadership and poor leadership
o Culture is “The way we do things around here.”
o Culture reflects the rules of the group.
- Leadership drives culture.
o Culture makes things work to the degree of its strength: budgets, scheduling, enrollment, patient wow experience, marketing, team meetings.
o Culture drives accountability, delegation, decision making, project management.
- Leadership is a skill, skills can be learned.
o Skill development in leadership and culture is like any other skill. You learn the basic skills then the “plays” just like in sports.
o Skills follow a step function with dips.
o People give up on the steps and dips.
We believe people’s mindsets propel the direction of the practice.
- Ours and our team’s mindsets
- Whether the practice is profitable, struggling, fun, drudgery, on-time, always running late, it is all fueled by the mindsets of the team.
- With the right mindset, attitudes, and basic capabilities any process can be tackled.
We believe Processes, tactics, and skills can be learned. Attitude cannot.
- Patient experience, scheduling, enrollment, collection, treatment presentation, are all skills that can be learned.
- Developing and automating processes forms a critical piece of continual improvement. Adopting and integrating new technologies builds efficiencies.
We believe a solid understanding of leadership and business skills is crucial for the owner.
- Learning and mastering the 12 skills of leadership makes for an excellent Practice owner..
- Adopting a CEO mindset of servant leadership is crucial.
- Learning the fundamentals of business metrics, financials, and KPIs for accountability and delegation is simply good sense.
