#41 Stop Trying To Save Chiropractic And Start Growing Your Practice

How many times have you heard someone say “The time is now!” or “There’s no better time for chiropractic than right now!”

More than enough right? It’s a common mantra at most seminars and I believe it’s actually TRUE but not because of chiropractic.

Let me explain what I mean and why it’s important…

You can call me a pessimist, you can disagree with me or maybe just call me a realist…. but IMO, this profession is 0% better than it was 25 years ago.

There are a handful of aspects that have improved and just as many that have regressed or totally collapsed.

For all of that time our “leaders” have told us “serve chiropractic and everything will be fine”…..”chiropractic needs you”….

Where has it gotten us? All of the effort, the investment, the campaigns, the attention, the focus that has gone into making “chiropractic” better and the end result…neutral….at best.

Apple didn’t leave it’s mark because Steve Jobs wanted to “save” the tech world. The side effect of global impact came from the relentless pursuit of his values…one of which was his company.

This has lead me to make 2 conclusions.

1. Stop trying to save chiropractic. It doesn’t work.

2. It’s a great time for chiropractic because it’s a great time for just about any entrepreneurial pursuit.

#40 Do You Know Your Kolbe Index? Here’s Why You Should

You’ve done the tests…

Myers-Brigg, DISC and many others.

You know your personality type, you know your IQ and you’ve even started using them in your hiring process or team development.

It’s wonderful to have detailed information about yourself, your team or a position you’d love to fill, BUT do you know the one piece of information that could be the missing link to successfully applying the data you’ve harvested?

How someone takes action is a primary determinant in achieving desired outcomes.

Even the most intelligent, driven team member could be restricted if their tasks don’t match well with how they naturally get $%&T done.

Just think of all the times you’ve tried to launch or complete a project and found it painfully difficult or worse, impossible to gain traction. Maybe it wasn’t you? Or at least not you in anyway you could modify or change.

The Kolbe A Index is a powerful test that streamlines the process of identifying how people take action.

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors, we interview David Kolbe, CEO of Kolbe Corp. to discuss the benefits of the Kolbe Index for the practicing Chiropractor and their business.

#35 Don’t Ignore This If You Want To Be The Best Chiropractor In Your Community

It’s commonplace in a business setting (especially a small business and specifically a chiropractic business) to mistakenly train your team while minimizing or avoiding the necessity to train yourself.

Contrast this with athletes at nearly all levels but most certainly at the professional level who train on a daily basis, constantly pushing themselves to get better and better.

While team training is a fundamental component of success, if you yourself are not training you will not improve, you risk being being surpassed by your competition, and you cannot contribute your maximum effort to your team.

There are endless benefits to building your own personal training curriculum.

Regular and consistent chiropractic training will make you more competitive, increase your competency and make you more efficient so you can confidently claim that you are the best at what you do.

In this episode we discuss why you need to train yourself, how do make sure it happens and what you should be training on.
