My Philosophy:

I believe that there is an entrepreneurial spark in most people who go into business for themselves (but not all) and yet many struggle to manage their businesses; that spark can begin to fade. Many are ‘technicians’ who believe they have an idea or product that is marketable, but have not yet developed the business acumen needed to thrive in the market place. Many professionals fall into this category.

My career managing dental offices for many years naturally included coaching and guiding dentists, (who self admittedly had little or no business training in dental school), helping them to develop business acumen and managerial skills in order to achieve their business goals as well as their professional goals. It was a natural for me to branch out to offer these services on a professional basis.

My services are not limited to the dental profession, as there are many professionals of all kinds who find that they require that little extra bit of training and guidance to reignite that entrepreneurial spark and enable them to truly work ON their businesses, as well as IN them.

This desire to work with professionals and business managers led me back to university; I completed the Masters level Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching at Royal Roads University – a program renowned for its comprehensive approach to coaching business leaders in every spectrum of the business world. I earned the designation of Certified Executive Coach and the myriad of ways that I can be of service to the professional and business community is just beginning to unfold. I look forward to being a catalyst in moving leaders forward and bringing passion back into their work!

    Hello Kristin,
    We met several years ago when I was an executive with Exan Software.
    I owned the company that developed the Mercedes Dental Software many years
    ago and eventual sold the the software to Exan and developed Power Practice which is used by many dental offices on the island. I was going through my things and a came across one of your brochures from years ago and wondered how you were doing.
    I have heard many good reports of your work throughout the years as a speaker at the dental meetings. I am working with practices and businesses in Vancouver as a mentor, coach, facilitator. I continue to love the business end of businesses. I watched your video clips …you are good. It might be worth connecting at some time.
    There is lots to do out there.
    Take care and enjoy the summer
    Carole McLeod (Jinks)

    Thank you for your kind words, Carole! It sounds as though you are doing some amazing work. I am interested in how we might collaborate! Helping dentists and their teams find relaxed confidence as business owners takes a village! I am speaking for the Vancouver District Dental Society in January 2015, and then again at Pacific Dental Conference in March. I hope we can connect.
