The Monthly Topics


Viewing transitions as whole systems. We’re creating systems everyday, and often this is done unconsciously. The speed of our decision making is also increasing. Having a systems level perspective helps things go right.


Taking time for reflection. Each month we'll come back to this concept as we learn more and build our strengths. You'll work on and develop this skill throughout the entire year.


Developing curiosity into a super power. We'll practice asking helpful questions and avoiding judgement. We'll learn how to truthfully ask: What do we know? and dive deeper into: What do we really know?


Leadership is letting go and opening up. Transitions are difficult and we'll learn to honor the difficulty with tips and tricks to avoid all the negative consequences. 


No rigid plan ever works perfectly. Fortunately, we can build adaptive strategies and reframe our path to find flowWe’ll look towards the adjacent future with what we know now to modify to something new.


Collaboration is a skill. We'll discuss the nuances of how to create a decision tree with a group, map out a plan, and implement a course of action.


Paying attention to what matters (and why). Every day we shape our lives. Every conversation has an effect. Each moment of interaction is a chance to positively impact the future and our path into it.


When intuition fails us (and what to do instead). Blindspots are when you loose awareness and end up sabotaging the bigger picture, often by making a snap decision. We'll examine letting go of fear and reaching for control as a way of trying to find safety.


How to create financial values (money matters). We'll dive deep into how you use money as a guide to decide if decision making is successful. We'll also discuss the financial parameters (not just the outcome) that describe a successful process. We'll create a financial model that will support everybody in the practice along with the patients.

Tailored to your needs

In addition to the lessons above there are two ways to gain more insight and feedback. 

First is the group call where we'll address specific questions, share experiences, and dive into the details of how each monthly topic is leading us towards success. 

Second is the 1:1 call where we can go further into how to effectively apply the new learning to your unique challenges. This can be two 1-hour calls or one 2-hour call. Whatever works best for your questions and schedule.

A New Year, A New Start


No matter the size of your transition, whether it's big, like selling a practice, or smaller, like hiring or making a process change, this class will help guide you through successful navigation of a transition. 

Instead of feeling stuck you'll have a mentor and trusted group to guide you in the right direction.

In this MasterClass you'll be able to ask questions, dive deeper into your own values, and come out with a congruent path forward.

Each Month Will Include Personal Actions You Can Take

The monthly lesson will share proven concepts and strategies for successful implementation (along with potential pitfalls to avoid). You'll also hear multiple case studies so you can see the concepts in action. This content will be recorded so you can watch at your own pace at your own time. 

The second half of the month will include a live call dedicated to diving deeper into the specifics and nuances of the months theme. There will be focus will be on how to achieve a successful transition touching on specific examples and case studies.

Let's Talk About Money


All decisions have a financial impact. Whether we're conscious of it or not, the financial impact will have an influence over the state of the practice.

In addition to being November's main theme, the topic of money will be woven into all our conversations. You'll be looking at making decisions that you want to test out against your financial plan.

We'll continually ask "what is the real cost?" We'll also learn to identify and track the hidden costs of our decisions.

The savings in money from identifying these hidden costs alone will be far greater than the cost of this MasterClass.
