by | Sep 4, 2023 | Grow Your Private Practice, Podcast, SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

In this episode of The Private Practice Elevation Podcast, you’ll learn about one of the most important factors that may determine your success in private practice: how you handle your emotions.

Most people think they can land on some optimized marketing plan, a system for scaling, or a specific strategy that’s going to help them achieve success for their private practice.

While those things are all important, if you’re unable to handle your emotions and stressful situations successfully, you’ll likely sabotage your growth.

To be a successful private practice owner requires a deep understanding of human emotions and the ability to navigate them effectively. Starting without your own!

This is where emotional intelligence comes into play. Emotional intelligence, often referred to as EQ, is the powerful ingredient that can elevate private practice success to new heights.

Private practice professionals, such as doctors, therapists, lawyers, and consultants, face unique challenges in their daily interactions with clients. Building strong relationships, managing client expectations, and providing exceptional service are paramount. These tasks go beyond the technical and clinical skills acquired through education and experience. 

They require a keen awareness of emotions, both our own and those of our clients, as well as our employees, and the ability to harness that awareness to make informed decisions and cultivate meaningful connections.

Today we’re talking with Jamey Schrier all about how you can become more self-aware and grow in your emotional intelligence – and why it’s crucial to your private practice success. As Jamey says:

“How you handle yourself under stress will determine your success as a private practice owner.”
