Two Minute Drill: Leadership Style of Moses

 

This week is Passover, which has Dr. Jay is talking all about the leadership style of Moses. According to rabbinical experts, there are three important character traits that Moses had as a great leader. Watch this week’s Two Minute Drill to hear what those characteristics are and see where Dr. Jay is bringing you this week’s TMD from.

 

Being a great leader

 

According to rabbinical experts who studied the Book of Exodus and evaluated Moses’ leadership style, there are three important character traits he had as a great leader:

    • An amazing sense of justice – he carried out that sense of justice regardless of consequences
    • He put the needs of his people before his own needs, creating admiration and respect.
    • Always remained positive, even when having to undergo unbelievably hard circumstances

As a leader in your practice, remember these three things: justice, putting the needs of others before your own, and remaining positive no matter the circumstances. Take this information and apply it in your practices and your life, and your life will be that much better.

TMD: Tiny little boxes

Two Minute Drill: Tiny Little Boxes

In this week’s TMD I am in Huntington Beach, California helping my parents who have fallen ill and talking about how I am addressing the topic of managing stress and mental health in my own life.

 

Compartmentalization

My parents have fallen ill and my sister, who has been amazing in taking care of them, needed some help and of course I wanted to come out and make sure my parents are ok. So, this week I am in California and wanted to talk about the topic of managing stress.

For me, I’m a big compartmentalizer. I take these stressful issues and I wrap them up in a tiny little box and I stick them away in the depths of my brain so that I can go about my day. It lets me go about my business and manage the things that need to be addressed. That’s my way of dealing with it.

At the end of the day, I realized I have a fair amount of tiny little boxes that are stored away in my brain in my conscious and or my subconscious mind that need to be addressed. So, I’m going to be seeking out counseling to help me address and deal with the issues, both recent and past. The reason I say these things to you is not that I want you to feel bad or sorry for me but because we all go through challenging times in our lives. I want to awaken some of those tiny little boxes in your brain and make sure that you are taking steps to get the help that you need.

I know it can be very difficult to find the right type of support. The right type of counselor. I’ve had counseling in the past and it has been very beneficial for me. Recently I’ve tried and haven’t been successful in finding the right person, but I realize I need to persevere and be gritty in my approach to find the right person that I can talk to to help address these issues.

I want you to do the same. If you have these tiny little boxes deep in your brain, make sure you reach out and get the support that you need. Ultimately it will help you improve your mental health, your wellbeing, and your happiness.

That’s today’s TMD. Again, I don’t want anyone feeling bad for me, this is part of life and I’m going to be just fine but I want you to be even better than just fine. If you need help reach out. Head over to our Facebook page and let us know how you are managing your stress.

TMD: Sharing the chiropractic message

TMD: Sharing the chiropractic message

Two Minute Drill: Sharing the chiropractic message

Dr. Jay has one important question for you this week, “How are you sharing the chiropractic message?”. Listen to this week’s Two Minute Drill to hear how you can help grow the understanding and impact of chiropractic.

 

How do we get the word out?

One really important question for you today, how are you sharing the chiropractic message?

Recently Dr. Jay had a friend who was having some issues, went to see a doctor and the doctor told her she was a good surgical candidate. That was a joke because when he talked to this person they were not a surgical candidate whatsoever.

There is so much guideline discordant care going on in our country and around the world and that is not ok. So, how do we get the word out? How do we educate other healthcare providers and the general public about what great care looks like, based on the evidence?

How do we do that?

First and foremost, there are two channels we can address. The first is the general population. Creating content that comes from the evidence is not so hard to do. When you are speaking through your voice it can have a really great impact on your patient population and those who want to be part of your patient population. So, find articles that are relevant to chiropractic, to your patients, and to the population at large and answer some of their key questions like, “Am I a surgical candidate?” and “What does a surgical candidate look like for spine surgery?”. That might be a really good post that you can put out there that will help the general public.

The second thing is sending brief narrative reports of exams and re-exams to your patients referring physicians or their PCPs, OBGYNs, orthos, even if they didn’t refer the patient to you. Letting them know what you are doing, how you are treating and evaluating their patients, and helping them understand how you are a valuable part of the healthcare team is critically important. Don’t stop at just sending over the narrative form, also reach out. Try and connect with them, have a conversation about your mutual patient. It’s called care coordination and it’s really important and can not only be great for the outcome of the patient but can also be great for the income of the practice. Once those providers connect with you and they know you know your sh*t they are going to want to send you more patients. The more they understand about chiropractic, the fewer drugs and surgery there will be in the world and more referrals to your practice, and better outcomes.

So let the general population know about chiropractic. Use the evidence that is out there. You can go to https://clinicalcompass.org/, there are tons of resources on that site that you can pull from and answer the questions your patients have, communicate with other members of the healthcare team, and grow the understanding and impact of chiropractic.

That’s this week’s TMD. Head over to our Facebook page and let us know how you are going to share the chiropractic message this week.

TMD: Take time to smell the roses

TMD: Take time to smell the roses

Two Minute Drill: Take time to smell the roses

This week Dr. Jay is coming to you from Virginia Beach for the Two Minute Drill. His good friend Brad Cost is playing cameraman as they were attending the UVCA convention. In this week’s TMD we are talking about beauty and the need to celebrate achieving your goals.

 

Take time to celebrate

Look at this beautiful beach and beautiful ocean, at this amazing setting in Virginia Beach at the UVCA convention.

What Dr. Jay is trying to convey to you in today’s Two Minute Drill, is when things are beautiful, when you are doing great things, when you are achieving your goals, take time to celebrate.

One of the most intelligent brightest behavioral scientists, BJ Fogg, talks about the importance of celebrating victories and building great habits. So, every time you build a habit in your practice or your life, celebrate the fact that you have achieved the goal.

Take the time to smell the roses people!

Celebrate the victories and you will not only be happier, but you will build in even more great habits that achieve even greater levels of success.

That’s this week’s TMD. Head over to our Facebook page and let us know what you are celebrating this week.

TMD: Hut Hut!

TMD: Hut Hut!

Two Minute Drill: Hut Hut!

It’s completely appropriate that Dr. Jay is wearing this helmet in today’s Two Minute Drill. This is John Riggins’ helmet, Super Bowl MVP. He was a gamer in the fourth quarter. Watch this week’s TMD as it is all about the fourth quarter and how you can make in-game adjustments to make sure you finish the year strong.

 

Are you winning the game?

Whether the team was winning or losing John Riggins was running over people. He was scoring touchdowns, he was making first downs, he was doing whatever it took to win the game.

So, we ask you where do you stand at the beginning of the fourth quarter? Are you winning the game? And if you are, are you identifying and understanding the inputs that got you there and then finding ways to continuously improve on those inputs so you can finish the year even stronger?

If you are not winning the game, if you are not having the year you hoped you would have, well guess what? You get to rethink your strategies, you get to rebuild your tactics, and you get to restart your action plan so you can finish the year stronger. Just because we didn’t have the best first quarter, second quarter, or third quarter doesn’t mean we don’t make in-game adjustments so that we can finish the game strong.

So, we want you to think about the inputs that got you to your successes. We want you to think about what you need to start doing, stop doing, change what you are doing, or do something even better to get you to that winning score by the end of the year.

That’s this week’s TMD, hut-hut! Head over to our Facebook page and let us know what adjustments you are making to finish the year strong.
