20/20 Money Episode #214 – Embracing the CEO model, delegating responsibility, & strategizing through a changing economy with Nathan Hayes of IDOC

December 12, 2022

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Nathan Hayes of IDOC. Nathan joins me back on the show to talk about a goal that a certain subset of ODs aspire to achieve, and that is to embrace more of a CEO role in their practice and spend more time working ON and OUT of the practice than IN the practice clinically. We talk about what’s needed to make that transition, some of the self-awareness that’s needed to embrace that role, and what an OD should and should not be doing with their time while in admin mode. We then shift our conversation towards a current “state of the profession” in what we’re both hearing and seeing practice owners do in the dynamic, post-COVID economic climate we’re still in and some of the trends we’re observing.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center.

You can also check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks, blog posts, and on-demand webinars.
