The Strategic Coach

I’m in Wokingham, at my first ever day in The Strategic Coach programme, 12 years after I first heard Dan Sullivan speak.
It’s the first time that this material has been delivered outside of North America – I am part of a ground-breaking experience.
So I can hardly complain about dentists who procrastinate before they join The Dental Business School!
This is a day for me, about me – and I’m enjoying the indulgence, the company and the presentation.
This morning I have been working on my lifetime goals, my three-year vision and my 12-month plan.
I am feeling lifted and liberated by the experience – I’m excited at the end of an exhausting working week.
It’s a rare treat to be sat IN the room, rather then presenting TO the room.
In an environment where I can practice what I preach.
As a coach, it’s important that I respect the intellectual property that is being shared here, as well as the confidentiality of my colleagues and the proceedings – but I feel revitalised already – and we have the afternoon to come!
