About That MBA For Physicians

What about an MBA for physicians? Lets face it; most of us do not have MBAs. Yet modern practice demands a plethora of these business skills sets.

The Magnetic Power of Common Courtesy

I spent four years in the Midwest, but admittedly it’s been some time. I had forgotten how common courtesy seems to permeate the entire culture of the Midwest, in stark contrast to those of the Northeast.

What CAN You Control?

You and I cannot control what’s going on in the outside environment, but we can control what’s going on between our own two ears.

It Just Takes Guts

Because of the world we now live and practice in It just takes guts to say what you believe is best for a patient, on so many levels.

Transitions

Transitions. I think one of the most powerful but sometimes scariest things we do as physicians caring for patients, but also mentors to students and younger docs is help them create a compelling future life, and then actually watch it start to unfold right before our eyes.

The Decision To Move Forward

The decision to move forward. This, unfortunately, still remains a major stumbling block of many. Indeed, the slowness or lack of making even simple decisions, but most especially putting off critical decisions sometimes slows forward progress by weeks, months, and in some very unfortunate circumstances years.

Creating A Compelling Future

I think one of the most powerful but scariest things we do as achievers is create a compelling future life, and then actually watch it start to unfold right before our eyes.

Avoiding KEY Reasons for Failure

I have a short list of reasons for failure, when a prospective client comes to me. The vast majority that ultimately become clients are successful because I personally vet all my clients on some really key issues.

What Do You Stand For?

It has been said, that “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything”.To be truly independent, on this great day of American Independence you need to know where you stand on the major cornerstones of your life.

Private Practice Mandates

Private practice mandates an entirely additional set of skills. Not instead of but in addition to your healers instincts. And honestly, failure to realize this, or especially educate our students creates every unpleasant and often painful experiences ranging from unrest to bankruptcy.

Times are never good or bad..

Times are never good or bad, only different.Sage advice from a master, spoken many years ago. I am not sure exactly who or I would give due credit.

Let’s take a look at these skills…

  Let’s take a look at these skills so essential to phenomenal success but so often overlooked. Number one on my list is the ability to organize and sort incoming “stuff” and data. Really. A messy desk (or home or personal life quite frankly) makes for a clouded mind. That’s why extreme and easy organization […]

Are your patients getting mixed messages?

Are your patients getting mixed messages, and you don’t even know it? Most especially, might there be an incongruence or two with regard to office policies which might not only be slowing you down, but could be like driving your car with the brakes on?

Make A New Plan

If things aren’t working for you in any area of life, make a new plan! Today! Remember, the definition of insanity is doing the same old thing in the same old way expecting different results.

A doctor’s natural gifts. That’s what you possess as a healer. You can put patients at ease; physically and quickly abolish their pain and discomfort. Restore hope, and actually save their lives by doing what seemingly is very natural for you. Healers have commonalities in backgrounds and life experiences. Actually, our pathways as doctors of […]
