Two Minute Drill: Over 20 Years

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill! Today I’m coming to you from Delaware City, Delaware. Last week we celebrated Dr. Allen Huffman, one of our clinic directors, 21-year anniversary with the company. So, today’s topic of conversation is all about longevity.


Last week, we were really fortunate because we got to celebrate the 21-year anniversary of one of our clinic directors, Dr. Allen Huffman. It got me thinking, what are the key drivers that made that happen?

So, here’s what I’m going to share with you.

  • Key Driver #1

First of all, it’s first who, then what? It’s the right person in that seat. He clearly aligns with our core values. He is always thinking about the success of the patients, the success of the team, the success of the clinic, and the success of the company.

  • Key Driver #2

Incredible loyalty. Not every moment that we’ve had in the past 21 years has all been roses and butterflies. There have been some challenging times, but he’s been loyal every single step of the way, always standing by my side, our side to make sure that we could overcome literally any challenge that we face.

  • Key Driver #3

It’s about creating the right kind of culture and environment, a supportive, caring, and loving environment to ensure that he actually wanted to stay 21 years and hopefully several more years down the road before he ultimately retires.

So, when you think about creating longevity for people on your team, in your practice, think about the right person, right seat. Do they align with your core values? Make sure that inherently they are loyal and want to get through any challenge with you, whatever challenges you face. Lastly, do whatever you can to create a supportive, caring, and loving environment. That will create longevity for the people on your team.

That’s this week’s two-minute drill. Talk to you all next week.
