Two Minute Drill: Sometimes Sh*t Happens
Saturday Dr. Jay got a call from his clinic director, colleague, and friend of 19 years, Dr. Allen Huffman. He texted and called him to let me know that a pipe burst above our unit and there was water everywhere. Watch this week’s TMD to hear about how Dr. Huffman is an example of a true locker room leader and how sometimes sh*t happens and you have to put a smile on your face, figure out what needs to get done, and move forward.
Saturday morning Dr. Jay got a text from his clinic director, colleague, and friend of 19 years, Dr. Allen Huffman. He texted and called him to let me know that a pipe burst above our unit and there was water everywhere in the unit. He told me exactly what was going to happen next to fix the situation. Dr. Allen got this info at 7 am, got out of his home several towns over, drove to the clinic on a Saturday, and was able to tell me what happened.
Dr. Allen is a true locker room leader. He takes extreme ownership of his clinic. When I thanked him, he said, of course, it is my clinic. Of course, I’m going to come down and check it out and inform you of what is going on.
The reason we are sharing is this story is because on Tuesday, June 15 we are having a webinar about creating locker room leaders.
How do we do that? How can you create locker room leaders in your organization?
- First – make sure you are really clear about who you are, what you believe, and how you behave as a company. Be very clear about the mission statement and core values
- Second – have to bring the right people on to your bus who actually align with your mission and core values
- Third – you have to support them in ways that help drive their personal professional and financially growth
These 3 things are critical in order to keep someone like Dr. Huffman for 19 years.
We are going to dive into how you can build locker room leaders deep on Tuesday, June 15. We’ll be talking about how to create not just individual contributors, but leverage contributors. This means creating leaders who can lead others.
