The Consulting U: Advanced training for Dental Consultants and Practice Administrators
The Consulting U announces a fresh approach for Consultants in 2013!
Same objective: To help consultants be their best so that they can deliver the best.
Different approach: One-on-one, personalized coaching designed to address your personal areas of need.
We've learned a lot since the launch of The Consulting U in January 2007. One lesson is that students have needs and desires which can't always be fully addressed in a shared classroom environment. Our graduates tell us they learned a lot, yet also saw the benefits of a more individualized approach.
We've been asked many times to:provide mentorship and training on a deeper level.offer issue-specific coaching.help co-develop a student's comprehensive business plan.Starting now, we say "yes" to those requests!
If your dream is to start a consulting business, or take your current business to exciting new heights, let's "discover" how we can work together in a simple yet effective 4-step process.
Here's how TCU 2013 works:
1. Discovery: Tell us your dream. We will ask questions—lots of questions. Our objective is to "drill down" to your core needs and develop a training plan.
2. Training Plan: Personalized just for you. Your needs may include a goal to better understand the business side of dentistry, to develop your own leadership skills so you can help dentists lead better, to analyze a practice -- or you may have questions about narrowing your service mix. Once the Training Plan has been designed, we move on to implementation.
3. Implementation: There are a variety of options available in the Implementation phase. Your Training Plan may be easily completed with a series of phone calls. On the other hand, face-to-face meetings, telephone coaching, email and/or the opportunity to use our training materials may be the best option for you. Our working relationship is based on your needs and desires, coupled with our recommendations and advice on how to achieve results. Our primary objective for you is Step 4!
(And fees starting as low as $750!)
"Debbie and Virginia's style and business acumen are something I certainly want to emulate. The tools I have received from attending courses at The Consulting U have added to my clinic's bottom line. Hats off to them for putting together great programs!" Melanie Duncan, AADOM Office Manager of the Year
"Don't just consider The Consulting U. Do it! It is the best thing I did for myself and my business. Debbie and Virginia helped me put more structure to my business—very practical advice, helped to open doors to some for writing and speaking. They have been so generous in giving their time and talents and sharing their knowledge.
"I don't regret one penny I have spend on The Consulting U. I have gained so much confidence and feel I can charge real fees for my consulting and know I am worth it. I love having contact with Debbie and Virginia to work through the challenges I face. Before, I felt like I was doing it "on my own" and didn't feel qualified to handle some of it." Marsha Pilgrim, MSP Consulting
