TMD: Am I Biased

TMD: Am I Biased

Two Minute Drill: Am I Biased?

In this week’s TMD I am coming to you from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C. Today’s topic of conversation is inspired by a recent LinkedIn post I read about unconscious bias.

 

Unconscious Biases

I came across a post on LinkedIn and loved it, it was about unconscious bias. I sent it to my entire team, and asked them to think about the biases that they may not consciously recognize, and what are the steps they can take to drive greater emotional intelligence. This is important because it makes us better people, but it also holds us accountable for taking care of others in our practices.

Therefore, we will do a better job identifying how we can best support the needs of our patients by being aware of these biases and improving our emotional intelligence.

I recently heard of two different studies, one in 2004 and the other one in 2017 that showed that those with a “Caucasian” name are more likely to be called back during their hiring process for roles they are less qualified for compared to people with an “ethnic-sounding” name. That’s wrong! It uncovers what the unconscious or even conscious biases are in the workplace. At the same time, those who made those hiring decisions are likely to be missing out on incredible talents.

When you think about how you build your team and interact with your patients, I want you to start identifying those areas of opportunities to improve your emotional intelligence and uncover those blind spots, those unconscious biases that we all have in order to be better providers, better people, and better positive impact givers.

Coming to you from Washington DC. Have a great week, guys.

TMD: Turtles and Darwin

TMD: Turtles and Darwin

Two Minute Drill: Turtles and Darwin

In this week’s TMD I am coming to you from The University of Maryland, my old stomping grounds. Today’s message is all about change and adaptation.

How do we adapt?

It is really awesome to see all the changes in this place, new buildings, new development, new schools… However, I drove by a restaurant that my buddies and I used to go to all the time called “The Bagel Place”, and after 35 years they are no longer in business. So, what’s the difference? I would argue that the difference is adaptation. Darwin said, “it is not the strongest or the smartest that survive. It is those who best adapt to change”.

We’ve had to deal with so much change in our world over the last year and a half. What I want you to be thinking about moving forward is what change could be happening in the future that you might need to adapt to. Maybe it is a change in reimbursement or a change in regulations. There is always going to be change happening. The question becomes, how do we adapt? How do we prepare for that adaptation?

Start thinking ahead. We are getting close to the end of the year and we are starting to plan and identify what are the things that we might need to adapt to in order to have our best year in 2022.

Go Terps! Fear the turtle!!

Hope you have a great, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving.

TMD: Be Your Most Authentic BEST Self

TMD: Be Your Most Authentic BEST Self

Two Minute Drill: Be Your Most Authentic BEST Self

In This week’s TMD I am coming to you from Daytona Beach, Florida. Tomorrow, I am speaking at Palmer, Florida to the students around the leadership mindset. This week’s message is going to be almost the flip side of the coin to last week’s about being your most authentic self. This week is about being your most Authentic BEST self.

What Could Go Wrong

A quick little story, Sunday night, I usually take CBD to go to bed. I was attempting to take some, I had a little dropper, I put the dropper in the bottle, and then nothing came out. I had a little bit left in the bottle so I decided to just swallow the whole thing. I realized that the swig was pretty big and I am sitting there with the CBD in my mouth and I am like should I swallow it? Should I spit it out? What should I do? And I just said, you know what, what could go wrong? I am just going to swallow it.

About an hour later I am staring at the ceiling thinking about all the areas of my life that I am not being well in. it was one of those “paranoid moments”. I have never had that experience with CBD before, but then, of course, I have never done a swig of CBD. Long story short, I made a list on my phone of areas where I needed to make improvements, and also how I had to have conversations with people specifically on my team and in my personal life about how I can do better.

So the message for this week is, in continuation of being our most authentic self, find ways to really dig deep and find areas of opportunity for improvement. Whether in your professional lives or in your personal lives, or a combination of both.

I am still on this journey this week of having conversations but dig deep, find ways that you can improve, and be your most authentic best self.

TMD: Be Authentic To Yourself

TMD: Be Authentic To Yourself

Two Minute Drill: Be Authentic To Yourself

  In this week’s TMD I am in Phoenix, Arizona. I have been here all week at the ChiroCongress Annual Convention. Today’s message doesn’t really have anything to do with this, it has to do with feedback. Watch this week’s TMD hear about some surprising feedback I received and what I realized.

 

Feedback 

Today, I am coming to you from Phoenix, Arizona. I have been here all week with the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations. We had our national convention here. Also, the Summit and Chiro Tech Consortium groups met this week. It was a very productive and awesome week.

Today’s message is about feedback. This week, I was surprised to receive some feedback about my appearance, my clothes, my hair… and the fact that I don’t take business relationships seriously.

I am a big believer in getting feedback, to be the best version of ourself we need feedback from others. However, at the same time, after suffering from decades of mental health issues worrying about what other people think of me, I got to a point in my life where all of this changed.

What I realized and I want you to realize is that the most important person you need to be authentic to is yourself! Because guess what? Those people that are judging you don’t walk in your shoes. You will be so much happier, so much healthier, when you are the most authentic to yourself. Those who are making judgments are not judging others, they are making a statement about themselves.

Take feedback, learn from it, and at the same time commit to yourself so that you can be the happiest you have ever been.

TMD: Our God-Given Body

TMD: Our God-Given Body

Two Minute Drill: Our God-Given Body

In This week’s TMD Dr. Jay has a special Guest, his best friend from college, Laurence Fundler. Today he will be sharing with us his own perspective and approach around our God-given body.

 

Healthy Body

As people, we are just spiritual beings. We are housed within our minds and our bodies. Laurence’s perspective is that our true home is right here within our God-given body.

Once you accept that concept, it becomes really easy and almost non-negotiable to take care of your body. Do the things that are going to give you that healthy longevity by exercising both your body and mind, eating proper nutrients, getting good sleep, and enjoying what God has to offer outside, the sun and the air.

Far too many people don’t take care of their bodies and have no idea of the harm that they are causing from all the junk they eat and their lack of exercise. Once the harm is done, the quality of life is gone.

Laurence is talking about playing the health and wellness game at a very high level from the opening kickoff to the last second that ticks off the clock. Every play and every drive matters. If you don’t pay attention to protecting your home, your personal game clock is going to wind down quickly. You’re going to run out of time-outs and it’s going to be too late to make a comeback.

Laurence also suggests not relying on a two-minute drill when it comes to taking care of your home.

TMD: Leadership Style of Moses

TMD: Leadership Style of Moses

Two Minute Drill: Leadership Style of Moses

 

This week is Passover, which has Dr. Jay is talking all about the leadership style of Moses. According to rabbinical experts, there are three important character traits that Moses had as a great leader. Watch this week’s Two Minute Drill to hear what those characteristics are and see where Dr. Jay is bringing you this week’s TMD from.

 

Being a great leader

 

According to rabbinical experts who studied the Book of Exodus and evaluated Moses’ leadership style, there are three important character traits he had as a great leader:

    • An amazing sense of justice – he carried out that sense of justice regardless of consequences
    • He put the needs of his people before his own needs, creating admiration and respect.
    • Always remained positive, even when having to undergo unbelievably hard circumstances

As a leader in your practice, remember these three things: justice, putting the needs of others before your own, and remaining positive no matter the circumstances. Take this information and apply it in your practices and your life, and your life will be that much better.
