How Treehouse Pediatrics Got Their Groove Back by Wendy Fong | Apr 4, 2022 | Leadership, Organization Development | 0 comments Treehouse Pediatrics partners are four hard-working pediatricians who are dedicated and passionate about patient care. After working together for almost twenty years, Treehouse Pediatrics created an amazing office culture. They cared for kids, laughed with families, listened to each other, and built trust. Their culture was the foundation of who they were and the practice they built. However, as the healthcare landscape changed, innovation was imminent. Treehouse Pediatrics was forced to leave behind the traditional private practice model to build a medical supergroup. Thus, engaging in this work caused a great deal of stress among the partners. In the midst of this work, they lost focus on the health of their own practice. With tensions high, the partners were facing the possibility of disbanding as they had lost trust in each other. Almost at their breaking point, the team reached out to Chief Gigs to engage in strategy consulting. The primary goals were for the business to be financially independent and to work on “culture stuff”. They needed guidance to unite the philosophies of private practice and the business model of a larger medical company. So, I worked with the partners to gain self-awareness and understand how their behaviors drive interactions with each other. Collectively, we examined each partner’s strengths and areas of misalignment in relation to the growth they were trying to accomplish. We focused significantly on team dynamics and accountability before divvying up the partners into their own lanes to lead initiatives that play to their natural strengths. After six months of hard work, the partners of Treehouse Pediatrics had the tools to build a foundation of trust. They each embarked on different optimal areas of strategy and were able to run the practice more efficiently than ever before. Just because we are the best in our field (like Treehouse Pediatrics in medicine) does not mean that we are great at all things. Anyone can lose their way, especially when responding to different economic pressure. In conclusion, knowing when to ask for help can mean saving you and your business from tension and internal disputes that you may regret. Want to know more about Treehouse Pediatrics?
