#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. Read More

#91 10 Steps To Build An Extraordinary Team

At Life By Design For Chiropractors we love talking about your team!

In part, it’s because we understand just how important they are to a successful business… and two, because choosing, onboarding and developing a world class team is such an overlooked part for the majority of practices we see.

Check out this scenario and let me know if it sounds familiar:

A team member quits (again) for a host of reasons that could be avoided AND you had an idea it was probably coming but did nothing (again) to prepare yourself.

Finally you find someone who “needs” a job and they get thrown into the mix with little training and within a few weeks you’re frustrated they’re not meeting your expected needs.

…soon the cycle continues… 🙁

Obviously it doesn’t need to be this way, in fact, it can’t continue like this if your goal is a successful, low stress, high profit practice.

On this episode of Life by Design For Chiropractors we discuss the first 5 requirements to build an extraordinary team! Read More

#86 3 BEST OF: The 4 Requirements Of A Successful Practice

Welcome to our first “Best of” episode of The Life By Design For Chiropractors Podcast!

From time to time we revisit some of your favourite, most downloaded episodes as the material is still relevant and it obviously had struck a chord then and we know it will again.

One of the cornerstones of Life By Design is the concept of requirements and strategies…

A requirement is something that you (or in this case your practice) NEEDS… these are non-negotiable. An example would be oxygen… As a human you need oxygen to live. It’s required for life and no amount of wishing, hoping, and dreaming is going to change that.

A strategy is a specific WAY in which you meet a requirement… there are many strategies. Let’s go back to our oxygen example. Oxygen is required BUT you can get oxygen in a variety of ways… breathing is one. But you can also use a respirator or you can get oxygen through an I.V.

The point is simple…

On today’s podcast we talk about the requirements for a successful practice and the most effective strategies for meeting those requirements. Read More
