How does becoming a better practitioner improve your business opportunities?
Unfortunately, it seems that physical health continues to erode, all while health & fitness professionals as well as rehabilitation clinics have continued to provide more and varying services, programs, and treatments. Now, there are plenty of factors that have influenced this trend, but it’s got to be enough to make clinicians and healthcare professionals stop and ask “Is there a better way?”.
Well, this week, I sit down with Jeremy Hall, co-author of The Business of Movement: Principles, Patterns, & Productivity. Jeremy is a physical thearpy, strenth and conditioning coach, author, and founder of Resilient Movement -a digital wellness company teaching the skills to develop physical independence across a lifetime. Jeremy’s mission is to educate and empower individuals with the knowledge and tools necessary to construct a physically-robust lifestyle that is sustainable and able to adapt to the constantly changing stresses and challenges of daily life. His most recent publication, with Gray Cook, co-founder of Functional Movement Systems, is titled The Business of Movement: Principles, Patterns, and Productivity. The book provides professionals in healthcare, fitness, and high performance with a blueprint for more effective and efficient practice and better outcomes through systems and strategies to put movement first.
What we cover in this Episode:
- The value of improving clinical skills and challenging the way we’ve always done healthcare
- Physical vital signs and their impact on whole-person health
- The importance of building independent practice to deliver individualized & specialized care
- How to ensure quality of care across by building a local network of providers in your area
- Crafting a business & clinical strategy to include marketing & lead generation
- How to achieve Better Outcomes by focusing on people rather than numbers
