How can hiring Jerry as a leadership coach help me as a dental practice owner? Collapse Jerry can immediately help a dental practice owner by providing a perspective to their current situation as well as a diagnosis as to how they can grow their practice as the leader, with a better practice culture. How can Jerry help me if he has not worked directly in the dental industry? Expand There is a Chinese proverb that says, 'If you want to know about the water, don't ask a fish'. If you are an expert clinician, you don't need help to grow your practice within a clinical mindset. You need to grow your practice as an entrepreneur. Jerry will help you become the CEO (Chief Entrepreneurial Officer) and marry those with your clinical skills in order to build trust with the team, improve your reputation as a leader and instill confidence in yourself and others. What are some specific areas that Jerry can help me with? Expand This depends on your needs. Connecting with Jerry on a discovery call is a bit like an interview. He will ask you questions to help to understand your practice and your strategy. A discovery call is complimentary and will at a minimum, help you realize some specific areas where you should focus your efforts to move your practice in the right direction. Can Jerry help me with my overall business strategy? Expand Yes. This is something that Jerry not only enjoys but excels at. Your business strategy will only succeed based on your ability to execute. Jerry will not only help you design a strategy based on your vision but he will help you execute by reverse engineering your goals down to where you need to start right now. I have never had a business coach. Is there a lot of work involved? Expand There is work involved, yes. But it's less about the amount of homework you have to do in between sessions and more about following through with action items. Jerry will tailor a plan for you that works with your schedule, to accommodate your business and personal life. Is coaching worth the investment? Expand Yes. Like anything, you will definitely get out of it what you put into it. Jerry's best clients are committed to working together to make their business better from the beginning. Coaching is not for someone who wants to 'see what it's like'. If you come into coaching looking for positive growth and are a person who can take and implement feedback you will have success. Asking yourself whether or not you are a coachable individual is important prior to us starting work together. What sets Jerry apart from other coaches? Expand About 90% of Jerry's clients choose to renew, or go beyond the initial agreement. This is because they are seeing results and Jerry has become an important key to taking their business to the next level. Specifically, he understands his clients unique challenges but also can hold his clients accountable to being the type of leader that people want to follow.
