While chiropractors are typically hardworking, dedicated doctors whose goal is to correct subluxations in order to benefit the well-being of their patients; they are also typically clueless about how to efficiently run a profitable practice.
Technical expertise is usually not enough to keep a practice up and running. Chiropractic seminars are a great way to get inspired and learn techniques on how to implement and improve your practice. Nothing will challenge you and keep you growing like a chiropractic coach will.
Many entrepreneurs will credit their successes to some form of coaching or consulting. (Yes, chiropractors, you are entrepreneurs!) There are plenty of chiropractic coaches out there for you, and they will each offer you a different approach toward your success. You should pick whichever coach is right for you.
To do this, you need to thoroughly understand your needs. What is your chiropractic philosophy? What types of patients do you want to attract? What area do you practice in? Etc.
From my experience, most chiropractors struggle to get their practices running efficiently, which prevents them from taking on new patients. Obviously hiring and training your staff is important to keeping your practice running smoothly. However, training your staff on your systems doesn't mean your practice is efficient. It means your staff will know how to utilize the systems you have put into place.
The reason chiropractic coaching is so effective, is because your coach will be there to remind you to measure the success of your efforts and to implement new systems when needed. Just because something worked 3 years ago doesn't mean it will work today.
Utilizing an experienced chiropractic coach will help you avoid many headaches! Making the investment in coaching will benefit you greatly in the long run and give you the time you need to focus on you.
