Hi everyone!

In this Tip of the Day episode, I'm talking about a book that I recently read called The Ideal Team Player: How to Recognize and Cultivate The Three Essential Virtues by Patrick M. Lencioni.

This book was recommended in the Facebook group and I finally got the chance to read through it, and I really found a ton of awesome nuggets of information.

I value reading good leadership books to grow as a group practice owner, and so anytime I read an amazing book, I like to give that recommendation out to other group practice owners so that you can use that time to read a little bit and learn how to lead a little bit better!

In the episode, I discuss:

  • three things to look for to find your ideal team players (therapists, employees, admins, etc.): hungry, humble, and smart
  • a summary of the book
  • how to tell if someone is hungry, humble, and smart in your group practice
  • how to apply these ideas specifically to a group practice setting
  • an exercise to map out where your current team players fall in these categories
  • what I got out of the book
