The Conversation: The Most Powerful Program You've Never Attended
The Conversation is a 30-day "cleanse" for chiropractors who want to get unstuck. It's unlike anything you've ever attended. Which is why it is so effective at producing change.
The Flaw of Seminars
After sitting in a hotel ballroom, you're lucky if you get one or two usable ideas. More common, the one-size-fits-all solutions often produce a burdensome "to do" list. Or feelings of guilt or shame for not seeing the numbers that "real" chiropractors are supposed to see. Seminars are outside in. The Conversation is different.
The Conversation Is Not a Seminar
By now you've heard it all and could probably list a dozen things that you could do, should do (or used to do) that would grow your practice.
Thankfully, you don't need more stuff to do. In fact, you're probably already "doing" too much. It's one of the reasons you're a little crispy around the edges. (We explore the other two reasons at The Conversation.)
The breakthrough most chiropractors want can only come from a new way of "being." Which is unlikely to result from learning a new script, a new procedure or sitting beside your staff as someone "yaks" at you from the front of the room.
The Conversation is Intimate and Personal
The Conversation is limited to no more than seven chiropractors. Everyone speaks. Everyone is practicing the Socratic Method. (It's a conversation, remember?) We're digging deep. We're exploring new possibilities. We're looking at things we've avoided. We're asking tough questions in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. We're tackling the "mental adhesions" that we often can't see, yet hold us hostage.
And then, something profound happens.
The fog lifts. A new clarity emerges. Burden is replaced with opportunity. Discouragement is replaced with hope. Your mojo is back. Because, as one recent participant observed, "I was asked questions that NOBODY had asked before."
The Conversation is Safe
"My job is to create a safe place where fears can be faced, disappointments can be healed and the underlying cause can be identified," says facilitator Bill Esteb. "It's not therapy, there isn't a hot seat, it won't test your bladder, it won't end your addiction or fix your marriage. It's not religious, although we'll probably discuss the spiritual implications of being a caregiver. And it's not a sales session. It's pure. You can tell that by reading what previous attendees have reported."
How The Conversation Works
Before we can have a meaningful life- and practice-changing conversation at the Denver Debrief, you'll want to prepare. Bill will email you 12 journaling assignments over the course of four weeks leading up to the Debrief. These thought-provoking exercises will get you thinking in new ways. They're fun. But be ready for an epiphany or two as you see your practice with fresh eyes.
After four weeks of thinking, writing and exploring your beliefs about practice and patients you'll meet the other participants at an airport-convenient Denver hotel and have one of the most significant chiropractic conversations you've ever had.
What The Conversation Costs
Is The Conversation expensive? That depends on whether you see success as a cost or an investment. To successfully complete the 30-day program you'll need to make three investments:
Money – Enrollment for this 30-day program is USD $500. Relax knowing that we offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. We can't refund your airfare or hotel room, but if you don't get more than your money's worth, we'll cheerfully refund your enrollment fee.
Time – Participating in The Conversation requires an investment of time to complete the email assignments, do the journaling and attend the weekend Debrief. You'll complete some assignments in 10-minutes or less. Others will take a bit longer, but easy to integrate into even the busiest schedule.
Emotion – For some, the most pricey part of The Conversation is finally facing the issue(s) that they've been avoiding and confronting the truth. This can be humbling; even scary. But always, liberating. (The truth sets us free, remember?) Lower your guard. Get real. And prepare for breakthroughs.
The Conversation Isn't For Everyone
Every Conversation is different. This tested process provokes the breakthrough you want because it's about you. However, results are less likely if you exhibit one or more of these unhelpful traits:
Short cutters – Anyone truly successful (by any measurement you wish to use) will tell you that there are no shortcuts. Zero. Nada. If you're unwilling to do the work, don't bother.
Blamers – If you've acquired a sense of helplessness or you're still blaming your dad, your chiropractic college, your ex or insurance companies, you're not ready for The Conversation.
Uncoachables – If you continue to insist on success on your terms and demand that the world line up your way, this isn't for you.
Know-it-alls – If you've made the rounds to all the management groups but are still struggling, you definitely need The Conversation. Granted, you may be skeptical or suspicious. That's understandable. The question is, this time, are you available for change?
Experience junkies – Are you a collector of seminars notes, ropes courses, fire walks and the rest? If you're ready to acknowledge that success, like healing, comes from the inside out, enroll in The Conversation. But if you believe that success is "out there" somewhere, this probably isn't the "there" you're looking for.
