First time visitor? Then start here and learn more about The Remarkable Practice


One reason why 67% of associate doctor relationships fail is the lack of clarity during the discovery process. Actually, the number one pitfall is hiring an associate before you have clarity around exactly what you are trying to accomplish. You must ask the right questions in the right order to get this right. When you do the discovery process right, the result is win, win, win; when you don’t, everybody loses. For CEOs, the juice from finding the right associate is worth the squeeze. It’s wicked hard, but you can get it right!
