[episode 28] Don't Push It Off

May 13, 2021
 

 As chiropractors, we have a tendency to prioritize our patient hours above all else. So much so, that we will decline events, training opportunities, or meaningful time of inflection if there is a schedule conflict. 

But how are we hindering our potential by missing these opportunities?

How is it possible to get ahead when we are convinced we don’t have the time to step away to set our goals and intentions?

Get ready to challenge this mentality in this week’s mindset moment episode.

[episode 27] The Boss/Friend Balance

May 06, 2021
 

When it comes to your employee(s), do you find yourself landing in the "friend" zone more often than "boss" zone? Or vice versa?

Let me explain...

Do you have a great goal setting and accountability system within your practice, but feel like you don't really know your team members on a personal level?

Or are you super in tune with what is going on in your team members lives and love the connections you've created, but have a hard time starting those difficult conversations when expectations aren't being met?

I'm here to say that there REALLY is a happy middle with this one! (And anyone who tells you otherwise is probably operating with a masculine leadership method.)

In this episode I outline some action steps you can take to stay centered as both a strong leader and welcoming friend to your team members.

[episode 26] Insider Tips for Recruiting Phenomenal Team Members (from Two Veteran CA's)

Apr 29, 2021
 

Get an exclusive peek inside the Illuminated Squad with this Guest Experts coaching call!

We were joined by two veteran CA's, Cami Wilson and Miranda Williams, who have a combined 17+ years working in chiropractic.

We dig into all things surrounding finding and hiring the right team members. Ones that are passionate about chiropractic and growing themselves within practice. 

Our call wraps up with a Q&A session with Cami and Miranda, where questions are addressed like:

 

  • What should you write in a job listing to attract the right candidates?
  • How are the best CA's wired? 
  • How do you show your CA appreciation in a way that resonates with them?
  • What are the non-negotiables when you are trying to find a long-term fit?

[episode 25] MINDSET MOMENT: Is "Doing Your Best" Actually Harmful?

Apr 22, 2021
 

“Just do your best!”... right?

What could be wrong with that gentle little encouragement?

My therapist pressed me, “Krysti, what would happen if you DIDN’T do your best? Or if your team and family weren’t doing their best? Would their value change in your eyes?”

Um. Well.

Now that my eyes are open to it, I can’t seem to look away.

Are we not worthy if we’re not always giving our “best”?  How can we—humans—be expected to always be ON and perform as if that’s commonplace? What kind of message are we sending to our children and teams if we only want them in a conditional fashion?

Follow along in this Mindset Moment episode as I attempt to evolve this narrative.

[episode 24] Is it Time to Hire Someone?

Apr 15, 2021
 

In the last few weeks, how many of you held up that white flag and cried “SOS! I can’t do this by myself anymore!?”

And how many of you held back because…
...you didn’t want to be seen as weak?
...you didn’t want to bother anyone else?
...you felt afraid of letting go and delegating tasks? 

 Somewhere along the line (maybe it wove itself into our DNA over the generations?) we’ve equated asking for help with failure. 

This episode is all about challenging your belief system when it comes to getting help, and how you can reclaim your life by doing so

Here’s the book I referenced in the episode: “Free to Focus” by Michael Hyatt

[episode 23] Is It Time To Reevaluate Your Team? 5 Signs to Look For...

Apr 08, 2021
 

Have you heard the concept that you will not have the same team at each level of practice? In my early years of practice, I actually rolled my eyes at the thought. Now with wiser, more experienced eyes, and many team transitions under my belt, I see this concept in a new light.

The reality is— we hire team members with the understanding that they will share our passion for chiropractic and growth and natural health, without truly knowing how invested in the journey they are. 

In this episode, I highlight 5 of the key indicators that it may be time to reevaluate your team. Plus, how you can look through a specific lens to determine if a candidate will be fully invested in the growth of your practice

[episode 22] Healing Bodies with an Imperfect Body

Apr 01, 2021
 

This may have been the most difficult episode for me to record to date. Revealing my deepest insecurities is not something I enjoy doing, but I have to believe...no, I know...there are other women in our profession that are dealing with shame surrounding this topic. And shame cannot survive once it is brought to light.

“Who do you think you are giving health advice to people when you look like that?”

“If you don’t practice what you preach, no one will believe you.”

These are just a few of the things I was told by fellow chiropractors in my early years. Which, as you can imagine, was just icing on the cake after a youth filled with bullying and a newly-diagnosed eating disorder. I eventually became my own bully when believing that I was not qualified nor worthy enough to be giving out health advice. 

Years later, with lessons from the (mostly) other side, I’m ready to dismantle the ideology that we must be...

[episode 21] MINDSET MOMENT: The Tug-of-War Between Trust and Control

Mar 25, 2021
 

Inspired by recent chats with my friend, the wise-beyond-her-years Erin Lindstrom —sales strategist and copywriter extraordinaire— I knew we needed to take a moment to spotlight something mind-blowing Erin dropped on our recent guest expert call. 

If you have complex feelings surrounding the concept of “selling Chiropractic,” this mini-episode will definitely resonate with you and leave you with a refreshed view on relinquishing control and embracing trust.

Mar 18, 2021
 

We’ve reached the final installment of the 3-part series where I’m revealing the things I wish I would’ve known about in my first 5 years of practice. And if you’ve been listening to the podcast for a while you probably have a hunch what this one’s gonna be about…

You guessed it - care plans! 

I delve into my thinking behind each unique patient care plan I curate, the neurological implications of your care plan length, and what chiropractic school should’ve taught us along the way.
