Collaborative Coaching



Evidence provides obvious solutions. We morph and evolve our words to clear needs, strong visions, sustainable goals and hidden capabilities of clients.   We ask essential questions, we listen dispassionately, without judgment, making sure there is a depth of understanding, creating collaborative prescriptions, safely addressing the root causes of for healthy thinking, concise behaviors.  

Our custom consulting and coaching programs ask difficult questions first.

  • What do you want?
  • Where do you want to go?
  • What is next?
  • What are the “root causes” of your current issues?
  • How long has have they been growing?
  • Who is responsible?
  • What will really work?

Sometimes we work backward from where you know you want to be.  Sometimes we need or you need time to find what is most important for you.   Often we work as a team or our team works with your team.

These, and other systematic methods, provide organizing principles that work every time.  

Solutions, though often simple, are seldom easy.  Learning, study and a willingness to change are essential.   This process supports an evolving thinking and behavior gradually creating high functionality.

 There are a plethora of methodologies.   What will work? 

Theory vs. Practice
The practice’s health vs. your health
Your transition and your life

We pay as much attention to your values as we do to the details of your systems, marketing and personnel.  What makes you unique?    What are the subtle nuances of your practice that retains patients and generates quality referrals?   What are your strengths?  We simultaneously create a game plan and a curriculum that works well with your values and needs.

We figure out how to apply methods of communication and motivation to the greater goals and visions for your life and practice. 

We have worked with hundreds of dental and medical practices.



During times of great change...

It’s important to steer yourself out of the unneeded storms and into practical decisions with new associates, potential partners or buyers.  Our affiliation with The Clemens group in New York City allow us to deliver hands a custom transition as you are ready for it.
Our approach is to be objective, specific, compassionate and individualized.  On average, our 35 years experience per consultant generates a consistency of outcome. 

Indeed, everyone we have talked to has asked for clarity and simplicity, and so that's what we seek to provide. During major transitions there are many choices that one must consider - and in a transition, in which you are buying, selling or merging, you can bet that the stakes are high.

How do you know what the next step is?  

While it's important to listen to your own voice—it's also very important to seek a local expert. Indeed, if you're in a transition, it's important to find an objective perspective that simultaneously accommodates your budget and timetable.
