#96 How To Prevent Your CA From Holding You Hostage


Has there been a period of practice (or maybe it’s been your entire practice life) where you’ve felt like your Chiropractic Assistant’s are holding you hostage?

I don’t mean “putting a gun to your head” or even threatening to leave you… it could just be performing at sub-par levels, ignoring their full responsibilities or adding unwanted drama to your business.

You can’t continue to operate and grow a successful, low stress practice without the ability to make fearless decisions that are in your best interest.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we give you actions steps to help preempt being held hostage and how to manage your mental state when it’s time to make a change.

Here Is What We Covered

  • Mike shares a funny but telling story about his 11 year old son Ashton taking over the front desk duties for a shift. What he surprisingly learned that changed his perspective.
  • The cost of not making changes long before a crisis happens. This applies to team development and can be transferred to plenty of other areas as well.
  • The 5 things that are an ABSOLUTE MUST if you want to preempt being held hostage by your CA or any team member.
  • Why setting a deadline and timeline for decision making is uber valuable.
