How It All Started
To appreciate the intent behind this unique chiropractic coaching program, listen in on a conversation from 2002.
I had just come off the stage as a guest speaker for one of the larger practice management organizations.
During the post-seminar celebration with the namesake of the organization, I offered an observation.
“You know it’s too bad that the chiropractors who could benefit the most from your coaching simply can’t afford your monthly fee,” I volunteered.
“If a chiropractor can’t afford our fee, we can’t help them,” he said matter-of-factly.
That has reverberated in my head for 20 years.
Since then, I’ve had conversations with countless chiropractors, either before or after presenting at a state association or chiropractic event.
Many revealed in one way or another they were facing a strong headwind. The practice they yearned for seemed elusive. There was a hint of shame, combined with disappointment, frustration and fear.
This has always troubled me.
The only thing worse than a patient who is suffering, is a chiropractor who is suffering!
It’s given me a heart for such chiropractors. Chiropractors who have had difficulty getting traction. Whose dreams have eluded them. Those often with the best intentions—but find themselves seemingly trapped in an under-performing practice.
HeadSpace Coaching is a way to give a hand-up to this under-served segment of the chiropractic profession.
But the program had to deliver two critical distinctions:
1. Address wrongheaded beliefs – Many such chiropractors have an unhelpful set of beliefs or attitudes. Success often requires abandoning assumptions, habituations and coaxing them to attach new meanings to their circumstances and patient behaviors.
2. Affordably priced – By harnessing the Internet, eliminating the need for salaried support staff and avoiding expensive hotels, I could make it available to every chiropractor. And by adding a money back guarantee, make enrollment risk-free.
That's the backstory of HeadSpace Coaching.
But make no mistake. Participating is no cakewalk. It will require self-examination, confronting limiting beliefs and learning new ways of communicating. But I promise it will be worth the journey.
And if you’re already living the dream and simply want weekly reminders so you and your team can stay sharp, you’ll find the process affirming—even inspirational.
You simply need to get started and experience it for yourself.
