  • Why most issues are people related
  • How to communicate to fix problems
  • Understanding how to work with different personalities through understanding DISC profiles
  • Why people depend on leaders and leadership within a business
  • Assessing people’s attitudes and productivity to get people in the right seats in a business
  • How leaders can approach and deal with problematic, underperforming personnel
  • Working ON your weaknesses versus working IN your weaknesses
  • Creating clinic culture and using that culture to attract top talent in the industry
