As we head into the LARGEST Scheduling Institute Event ever, there’s something I’d like to discuss.

The 5X Summit will be the largest dental training summit EVER held… I have spent over 2 MILLION dollars on making it an unforgettable weekend for you and your team, and something that you will talk about for years to come, BUT….

I need your help.

Without your help, this event won’t accomplish my ultimate goal. Without your help, this weekend will be a good time. Some of your team members will have life changing revelations, and some team bonding will definitely occur… but then you’ll all go home. Everything will go back to normal.

That’s where YOU come into the picture.

I need YOU to facilitate productive conversation with your team members. The whole point of the 5X Summit is to create a productive environment that is conducive to growth. I am creating the environment for you, but I need you to meet me halfway so that your team can have an incredibly transformative experience.

Take a minute to examine your engagement level. Where do YOU fall on a scale of 1-10 (1 being very disinterested/apathetic, and 10 being the ultimate level of engagement, excitement, and understanding.) Alright… Now subtract 2-3 points from your engagement number… THAT is the engagement level of your team!

If I have learned one thing from my years of working with Practices around the world, it’s that your team is ALWAYS at a lower engagement level than you. And if they are (by some miracle) more engaged than you, it won’t last very long. They ‘ll either get deflated by the lack of enthusiasm around them (causing their number to go down,) OR they will quit. Find another office. A change of scene.

Another rule I’ve learned about engagement levels: they are MUCH easier to bring DOWN than they are to build UP. That means I could spend 3 FULL days at the 5X Summit building up your team’s engagement… And then in 5 minutes you could completely flatten them… Ruin all of the momentum… And kill ANY chances they have of ending this year strong. All you have to do is say the wrong thing, have the wrong attitude, or tell them bad news at the wrong time, and BOOM! Engagement levels will DROP at the speed of lightning.

So please, please, please help me make the 5X Summit more than just “fun.” Help me to make it a LIFE CHANGING event for your team by doing TWO things:

1) Help facilitate conversation with your team. Discuss relevant content during your breaks and free time.

2) Don’t ruin the momentum I’ve built up!! When you get back from the 5X Summit, your team is going to be ON FIRE with excitement! Keep that energy and enthusiasm ALIVE so that your team can finish the year as STRONG as possible! If you knock them down with negativity as soon as they get back, you will ONLY BE HURTING YOURSELF.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there, and seeing engagement levels at an ALL TIME HIGH! Let’s go 5X!!

It isn’t too late to sign up… 5X Summit is happening TOMORROW, October 23rd through Saturday October 25th in Atlanta, Georgia. CallĀ 866-917-2808 to sign up or to talk about ways to build team engagement.


Until next time,
