In this episode, Mike DeVries & Co-Host, Ben Lane, visit with Mari Martin from Performance Strategies Group (www.psgteam.com).  Mari is the founding partner of PSG where she consults with businesses, teams, and individuals to improve communications, productivity and efficiencies in the work place.

To become a great golfer, you need to practice.  Spending time on the basics of golf is important if you desire to take your game to the next level and score well.  Using this analogy of golf, Mari walks us through four steps of working on your game in business to take your business to new levels – to Practice on Purpose.  These steps include:

  1. Working on Knowing Yourself
  2. Working on Your Team
  3. Working on Communications
  4. Working on Reducing Stress

Physicians, Dentists, or any business owner will benefit from working with a team that is working on their individual game for the benefit of the business.  Mari explains how using an assessment tool, like the Kolbe, can help business leaders not only understand themselves better as leaders, but will help them lead and manage people according to their strengths.  When you help your team work with their strengths, they’ll excel; force them to work contrary to their strengths and you will have a stressful workplace that can result in costly turnover.

The most valuable assets in your business are your employees - Michael L. DeVries, CFP®, CHBC, EA Click To Tweet

If you want to improve your business and reduce stress at work, at home, and at Play then invest 25 minutes in taking a Kolbe Assessment with the assistance of a Kolbe consultant, like Mari Martin.  Doing so will positively change your business and your life for the better.

  1. I benefited from listening to episode 5. Great theme. Even though I suck at golf, it was an applicable analogy – even for me as a high school math teacher. There were sub-topics throughout your conversation with Ben and Mari when I wanted to join in and share my experiences. That urge to participate is what you want to create in a podcast. Thanks.
