Episode 70 | The Ideal Team Player Book Review



  • Episode 70 | The Ideal Team Player Book Review 00:00


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!

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

This episode is sponsored by TherapyNotes. TherapyNotes is an EHR software that helps behavioral health professionals manage their practice with confidence and efficiency. I use TherapyNotes in my own group practice and love its amazing support team, billing features, and scheduling capabilities. It serves us well as a large group practice owner.

The show

The podcast is structured so that you get practice building tips in small doses, where an episode can be listened to (and a group practice building lesson can be learned) in a single car ride.

Episodes are structured into categories: coaching sessions where I coach a group practice owner on a specific topic, tips of the day by yours truly, real talk where you get to be a fly on the wall while an established group practice owner and I talk about the highs and lows of ownership, and trainings done by experts in the field.
