About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

You are born with a heart to heal and serve.
You are built for compassion and empathy.
You are wired with a passion to make others feel better.

You are a health care professional.

But, if you own your own clinic or are in a high level leadership position in a larger health in an organization, that "heart to heal" may sometimes get in the way of the business side of your practice. You may feel faced with a constant internal struggle.

Here are the signs:

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed, frustrated or resentful?
Do you work to exhaustion, but still feel like you never get anything done?
Does your staff fail to follow through...no matter how many times you ask?
Does the constant focus on insurance companies, legislation and bureaucracy zap your energy and joy?
Have you forgotten why you pursued this profession in the first place?

From People Problems to Productivity will help bring back your passion, re-create your vision, re-focus your mission and, most importantly, get your staff aligned with your work.

“Working with Kirsten was like peeling an onion back one layer at a time as we worked through the negative issues in my clinic. She helped me gain more confidence and empowered me to lead my employees and clinic better than ever before. I now have a more positive clinic and have started to enjoy working again with a new energy and empowered feeling.”
~Dr. Eric Lambert

“Kirsten Ross is the answer to a prayer. Kirsten’s skill in unveiling the ‘best me,’ allowing me to ‘lead from the platform,’ has me believing that I may just be able to take us there.”
~Dr. Susan Youngs

“Before working with Kirsten, my voice was not heard. As a business owner, I had a difficult time with staff compliance and expectations. Through her practice-building workshops and facilitated conversations, we were able to come together as a team and I was able to become the team leader and boss I always knew I could be.”
~Dr. Rosemary Batanjski
