Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Would a Dentist Want a Coach?
Successful business owners, CEOS, managers, and other professionals often credit working with a coach as one of the leading reasons for their success. Having a coach as a sounding board, support, and guidance is invaluable to being able to see what is going on from a new perspective and to make the best decisions for your life and your practice.

As a coach, I don’t tell you what to do. I help you see a “helicopter view” of what is going on and ask great questions that allow you to find your own answers.

How Do I Work with You?
Working together starts with a simple phone call to make sure we’re a good fit. I like to get to know what’s going on with you and where you want help. I’ll also answer any questions you may have about me.

Once we get started, we talk on the phone, often for an hour, anywhere from 1 to 3 times per month, depending on your needs and schedule. I work with my clients from month-to-month, so there are no long-term contracts.

What Will I Get from Working with You?
Clients often tell me that some of the best things they receive by working with me are . . .

  • Newfound self-confidence to make decisions
  • Learning how to handle anxiety-producing situations, both with staff and patients
  • Clarifying what they want from their practice and their personal life
  • Gaining the courage to do things they didn’t know was possible
  • Feeling they have a silent partner who always listens and helps them
  • Someone they completely trust to help them navigate the challenges of life and their practice.
