The 4 Most Common Mistakes (Subluxations) Chiropractors Make With Their Team

We all make mistakes. They're often learned through trial and error, but if we take note then it becomes easier to avoid them moving forward with our practice! After 15 years in business, we continue to see these 4 patterns happen during different phases of the practice. 

Take a look and make sure to watch the video below to break these habits and create a healthy team moving forward. 

Here are the 4 common mistakes we see docs making with their teams:

  1. Waiting too long to hire ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 
  2. Hiring + Hoping ๐Ÿคž, aka NO Onboarding + Training 
  3. Making it all about metrics ๐Ÿงฎ , goals, incentives, and money ๐Ÿ’ฐ 
  4. No Organization + Accountability โ˜‘๏ธ 

All of which = Owner Burnout ๐Ÿ˜ฉ , Frustration ๐Ÿ˜ก , and Doing It All Yourself Anyway ๐Ÿ˜ข 

It really doesn't have to be this way homies! Sort of like communicating and marketing chiropractic, 90% of us just make it too complicated and end up getting bad advice.

I fully understand the burden of school ๐Ÿซ loans, rent, utilities, equipment ๐Ÿ’ป , software licenses, and so on and so forth... so the desire to save money by running a "boutique" practice where you do all your own scheduling, financials ๐Ÿ’ฐ , systems, etc. is attractive when you look at it from a Quickbooks overhead/profit perspective.

But what about your drive and vision for creating massive impact in your community? And, what about your adrenals and emotional health ๐Ÿ˜ฉ knowing you are literally tied to EVERYTHING that makes your practice go?

Hiring that first Care Advocate and Associate Doctor can be scary ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ for sure, but it doesn't have to be... especially if you prepare for success by lining up these ducks ๐Ÿฆ† first:

  1. Ensure that the person you are hiring is MISSION โค๏ธ hungry and ๐Ÿ’ฏ aligned with your core values and culture FIRST and foremost
  2. Know EXACTLY what role and responsibilities (actions, tasks, ๐Ÿ“, etc.) you are hiring for... and EXACTLY how to track the performance and success of that team member (KPIs) 
  3. Clear time and space, and have an entire onboarding + training system, manual ๐Ÿ“‚ , and framework in place for the first 90 days especially

Doing those 3๏ธโƒฃ things helps prevent the problems and subluxations listed above (provided you didn't wait to long, the most primary subluxation this profession suffers from in this area)... and will lead to such success and growth ๐Ÿš€ that soon you'll find yourself doing it again, and again, and againโ€ผ๏ธ

At a certain point (one that comes way earlier than most) you far exceed your capacity to do it all, and growth stalls out and adrenals and happiness burnout. You can avoid ALL of that and never stop growing ๐Ÿ“ˆ and reaching more kids and families in your community by investing 10X in one thing -- people. Get. After. It.
