How do you help deal with or counsel a patient who distrusts you for reasons outside of your control?

– Address the mental barrier

Today, Jody and I talk about Habit #2, Begin with the End in Mind.

Frankl says we detect rather than invent our missions in life

“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life… Therein he cannot be replaced nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.”

Rank #4: First Things First! – Habit 3 – PLR 26

Podcast cover
Read more

Grab a free audiobook on us!

Today, Jody and I talk about the third habit of highly successful pharmacists.

First things first!

Have you ever had a period of your life were you just felt like you were constantly putting out fires?

Habit 1 : you are the creator – you’ve taken responsibility for your actions by becoming a proactive person
Habit 2 : create the mental creation for your life – You’ve taken the time to understand your principles that will guide your life
Habit 3 : the physical creation of habit

The third habit is the physical creation of the project. It is the manifestation of the second habit. What we’re focusing on is what’s called effective management of ourselves.

You can’t manage time, that’s impossible. What you’re really doing is managing you, self-control.

Rank #7: First Understand, then be Understood (with Megan Barker) – Habit 5 – PLR 28

Podcast cover
Read more

Grab a free audiobook on us!

Today, we have my lovely wife, Megan, on the show.

How do most people communicate?

    1. Key to effective communication with others is to understand them before they understand you
    2. As a man, I can’t emphasize how awful my brain is wired to understand my wife
    3. Typically, when we respond to people, we do it four ways, –We evaluate (agree or disagree), we probe (ask questions from our own frame of reference), we advise (based on our own experience), we interpret (we try to figure people out based on our paradigm)
    4. Reflective listening
      1. Relay back to the listener with a rephrasing of the feeling and content
    5. Resist the urge to fix a problem
    6. This is a DIFFICULT SKILL!
    7. THEN BE UNDERSTOOD
    8. MOST PEOPLE start with logos first, which almost never works
    9. Application 
      1. Next time you are in any conversation, test your ability to understand first. Resist the urge to speak your opinions immediately
      2. Reflect back the content and feeling of the other people

Rank #9: Synergy – Habit 6 – PLR 29

Podcast cover
Read more

Grab a free audiobook on us!

Today, Jody and I talk about the 6th habit of highly successful pharmacists, synergy.

Do you feel like sometimes your team isn’t working cohesively, like certain members are bringing the team down?

Synergy – the whole is greater than the sums of its parts

It’s the essence of principle-centered leadership

It catalyzes, unifies, and unleashes the greatest powers with people. It takes the motive of Win/Win, the skills of empathic communication, on the toughest challenges in life

We use synergy by valuing differences, respect them, build on strengths, and to compensate for weaknesses.

Synergy at times can be chaotic if allowed by leadership

People can descend into poor decision into the workplace, but with the best of intentions. Sadly, people get burned by their experiences and feel like they can be who they are at work

You’ve either experienced this or watched this happen. Leaders will make new rules based on the actions of a few abusers, and because a few people break the rules, it limits the creative freedom for everyone

Rank #13: 7 Habits of Highly Effective Pharmacists – PLR 23

Podcast cover
Read more

Grab a free audiobook on us!

Jody and I bring you the first installment of an 8-part series.

This series is based on the 7 principles that will change the way that you see the world and make you an effective pharmacist.

We’re going to focus first on the inside and the way we think who we are and how we interact with the world.

The first 3 episodes will focus around you and how you interact with you.

The next 3 will be how you interact with others and how to most do that effectively.

The last ones focuses on bringing it all together.

These habits are the intersection of knowledge, skill and desire. Knowledge is what we do, skill is how we do it and desire is why we do it, and we have to have all these to make our lives better.
