As I listened to the AMP TV show called The New Year and The Power of Coaching I thought a lot about Darrens examples of athletes and how they are coached as it relates to the coaching we do and some of the offices that we work with. These top athletes that will be in the Olympics are coached by people that do not compete at the same level as the athlete; however, they get these athletes to preform at such a high level much like a dental coach may not practice clinically; however, we are able to understand how to get them to preform at a high level.
I believe there are parallels because whether you are an athletic coach or a dental coach the end result is the same. We both point out the issues with a particular plan, provide a pathway for improvement, create a vision of success and make the goals necessary to get you to where you want to be.
The hope I have for my offices in 2018 is that together we will build what real success looks like for the doctor and that they will allow us to point out issues along the way, provide a pathway for improvement, create the vision of success and create goals together.
I look forward to helping all of our offices set goals and hold them accountable for the changes that they want to make in 2018. Through this process we get one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. It is the gift of going on the journey to get you to where you want to be that is possibly the most rewarding thing we can do together, it's not always the destination or end result.
