How To Train World Class People You Can Trust

On this episode of the Paul Gough Physio Rooms Show, I take you behind the scenes of a staff training session I held at Volk PT, Charlotte a few months back where I share exactly what it takes to build and train a world-class team for your clinic:

Click here to watch it.

In this episode I cover:

* The importance of developing your staff as people if you want your business to be successful

* Why finding and retaining the right staff is more important than worrying where your next patient is coming from

* The reason why clinical skills aren’t the real reason your patients show up and leave

* Why I believe business success is all about creating the right environment for your staff to learn, develop and grow

* How to create a culture that makes patients want to show up and stay on schedule

* The staff training framework I use at my own clinics

* And so much more…

Watch this week’s show here.

I look back now and realize that one of the reasons my business has been so successful is because we’ve created a culture that is very easy for the right person to fit into – and equally, very difficult for the wrong person to fit into which has made it very easy for me to lead from anywhere in the world.

How To Deal With Demanding Patients…

In this episode of the show I talk to my staff about how to get comfortable with “demanding” and sometimes difficult to work with patients:

Click Here To Watch It

There’s always that one patient that comes in each week that everyone feels a little uncomfortable around. But it’s not just happening because it is YOU or YOUR clinic and it’s certainly nothing you have done…

It’s because every patient has a different personality type (one of four) and it’s impossible to NATURALLY connect with them all – especially if you don’t know what they are.

Most clinicians struggle with the “drivers” – the lawyer or CEO Type – who are a little more forward in their demands and their expectations.

Yet, I used to LOVE working with drivers. That’s because I figured what to do and say so that they enjoyed working with ME.

As I teach my staff, you can’t change the patients, but you can change the way that YOU respond to them and how you let them make you feel.

Watch the show to find out the four patient personality types here.

Also covered in this episode:

* Why being in control means you must give up control

* The different patient personality types and how to deal with them

* How to recognize the characteristics of the DRIVER personality types and how to work with them

* What specific questions to ask difficult patients to get them on side

* How to get demanding patients to “ease off”

* How to turn drivers into life-long patients you love to welcome back to your clinic

And so much more on this Episode.

This issue of struggling to deal with demanding patients is one that your staff might not want to admit to – so this video will make their day when you show it to them and help them get better at working with all of the personality types that pass through your business.

The Importance Of Setting Patient Expectations…

Watch and hit SUBSCRIBE to the latest episode of the show here 

In this episode of the show I talk to my clinic’s staff about the importance of setting – or as is often the case – RE-setting patient expectations:

Click here to watch it. 

A lot of people talk about the “importance of communication” with patients – but I think what should be communicated by those who say that, is that the purpose of getting better at communication, is to ultimately change their expectations.

One is “what to do” – the other is “how to do it”. 

If you look at people’s lives, anywhere they are unhappy; it is mostly caused by EXPECTATIONS not being met.

Look at your practice, anywhere there’s an unhappy patient, it’s usually because EXPECTATIONS have not been met.

This episode comes on the back of birth of my son, Grayson Edward Gough, and I share with my team some real-life examples of how MY own expectations were not met in the 48 hours in hospital…

…and, how that led to a level of frustration, that ultimately led to us talking more about how they made us feel – rather than the great clinical care that was actually provided.

As I ALWAYS say, clinical skills get you started, but they also get you stuck.

All of the clinical skills will not change the EXPECTATION issues that your patients carry with them; you can only do that by truly understanding their INTERNAL needs and if you do that, you get the chance to fix their external needs (such as their knee pain).

– Watch the show here. 

Here’s what I cover on this episode:

* How a highly trained, very skilled, very well paid surgeon made a DREADFUL mistake that p*ssed my girlfriend Natalie off something rotten

* How NOT to communicate with patients when they’re frustrated

* How to communicate with patients so they don’t ever get frustrated…

* Why most people’s issues are EXPECTATIONS issues – and how to ensure they get met whether on the phone or in the treatment room

* And so much more on this episode of the Paul Gough Physio Rooms show…

Why No One Wants To Pay For Physical Therapy…

Most PT business owners experience some form of “push-back” when it comes to the money or pay-out-of pocket conversation.

If you’re getting inquiries, but hearing “I’ll have to think about it” more times than you would like then this week’s Paul Gough Physio Rooms Show is for you – click here to watch it:

When you watch the show you’ll hear me talk to my staff about:

* Why we should NEVER be talking about “PT” to anyone who makes an inquiry

* Why it’s the job of my staff to find out what patients REALLY want from us – which isn’t anything to do with “great treatment”

* Why patients say “no” and how to change what you say to make them say “yes”

* How your patients (including you) make purchase decisions

* PLUS you’ll hear real-life examples from my Queen of follow-up phone calls, Vicki Smith, on how to do a follow-up right

Watch the show here.

It’s worth watching right to the end just to hear how Vicki was able to move an elderly gentleman who was extremely “skeptical” about coming for PT…

…to want to go all-in and book out a full plan of care.

How To Use Body Language To Appear More Confident To Patients

Do you ever find it awkward when the money conversation comes up in your Physical Therapy Clinic with patients, or just don’t feel confident handling it?…

On this episode of the Paul Gough Physio Rooms show, I sat down with my Physical Therapy clinic’s team and shared how to APPEAR more confident when you’re in those sometimes “tricky” conversations with patients.

It’s in your hands to take charge of that.

* Bad examples of places I’ve been where there’s barely even any eye contact made with customers
