Fifteen years into in-practice coaching and 30 years in the dental insurance industry have given me a lot! I have had the opportunity learn from some of the best minds in the industry and some of the best doctors and teams in the world. For me it all boils down to just a few simple, but sometimes elusive, goals.
The late Dr. Peter Dawson often talked about how he grew his reputation and value in the industry by using a small index card in his pocket on which he kept a list of all the things he wanted to accomplish each week. As each item was marked off the list, he was one step closer to the renown and worldwide presence of the Dawson Academy. When I attended the Dawson Academy or in meetings where we both spoke, I never heard him say he started out to be the founder of a world-renown institution. What he did was to pursue excellence. When you pursue excellence, success finds you. At Cartin Coaching, we measure success in dentistry according to the Triple Bottom Line, the degree to which you are:
- The Provider of Choice
- The Employer of Choice
- The Investment of Choice
Never underestimate the value of taking one step at a time!
How's that working for you? It would be my pleasure to help you build a strategy in your unique circumstances to reach those goals. At some point, it seems we all have to ask the question posed by, New York Times Best-Selling Author and Executive Coach, Dr. Henry Cloud:
"What reason, other than the fact that I want this to work, do I have for believing that tomorrow is going to be different from today?"
