To improve your career satisfaction and life satisfaction, to find an unlimited amount of opportunities and success in the future, let a dental coach lead the way. Is that not enough of a reason to get a dental coach?
I love this quote from The United Kingdom Coaching Strategy that describes the role of the sports coach as one that “enables the athlete to achieve levels of performance to a degree that may not have been possible if left to his/her own endeavours.” Let’s play with this and change the words ever so slightly to the role of a dental practice management coach as one that “enables the dentist and his or her practice to achieve levels of performance to a degree that may not have been possible if left to their own endeavours.”
When it comes to building your professional reputation and your dental practice’s brand in the marketplace, a dental coach is the most powerful resource to help you, and your dental team to get out of your own way, be extraordinary, and take action to achieve the things that are truly important to you. A dental coach will enable you to get clarity on what is most important to you to achieve in the short and long term.
Whether we are talking about getting more new patients, increasing production and collections, growing the practice by acquiring and merging other offices or perhaps you will bring on an associate or invest in new technology to add additional procedures…whatever it is you need to build a plan, execute the plan, and have support to keep you accountable to the plan.
A great dental coach is one that pushes two different agendas for you simultaneously. First is your agenda, which is your goals and vision. Second is their agenda, and great coaches only ever have one agenda, which is to do what needs to be done to get you to achieve your agenda.
Without a dental coach, you are lost at best. And at worse not achieving beyond your potential, becoming the best version of yourself, and getting what you really could be out of your career and in your life. Rich Litivn, a world-class coach to the ultra-successful, wrote “I am exceptionally gifted at seeing where other people are powerful—even when they can’t see it for themselves.” I love that. It means that within all of us there’s so much more we could bring out into this world if we only have somebody who will objectively empower us to draw it out of ourselves.
Fortune Management Dental Coach
In my work as a Fortune Management dental coach, I hold to a core philosophy that I serve as a coach to my dental clients, not a consultant. I find out what he or she wants and help them achieve it. I wholeheartedly believe it is not my job to put my expectations on to them. I hold my clients accountable for what they want and say they are going to do. Keeping them on task with their actions and decisions that bring them closer to their ultimate vision. I keep them moving forward. Call them out when they are moving backward, sideways, or stalled.
This means working on fulfilling the doctor’s vision for his or her business to achieve their vision for life. I help dentists who own a dental practice to act like a CEO and make educated, sophisticated business decisions that will advance them in their career and their business. You need this. You may not know it, but you do.
Napoleon Hill wrote, “First comes thought; then organization of that thought into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.”
Coaching will guide you to develop a business plan and a life plan. You see, it’s one thing to say “That’s what I want” and it’s even possible to say “This is how I am going to get it”. As I coach you I keep you on that plan, especially when you hit a roadblock be it mentally, physically, or otherwise. I will not be your friend, giving you a pat on you back or commiserating when you’re down. I will offer support and assistance to help you implement change and achieve your desired goals. I will hold up the vision and plan, your vision and plan, in your face, and say “Doc, remember who you are and what you want.” As a coach, I’ll even be there to remind you of how great and powerful you really are, whenever that’s needed.
What would it be worth to you to have better clarity, focus, and decision making?
A dental coach helps you to save time, money, and unnecessary stress. A coach improves your leadership skills and wipes out your blind spots. I keep you focused on what is really important and guide you to let go of what is not
