Practice Building Programs
Healthcare professionals, drawn into their work out of a strong desire to facilitate healing, often struggle with the idea that their private practice is a business and that this business requires them to develop entrepreneurial skills so it can thrive. Academic training programs in counseling and healthcare occupations rarely include any business classes or even meaningful dialogue about practice-building, so professionals starting an independent practice often lack the information and tools they need to succeed. Practitioners with longstanding private practices may also find themselves newly struggling to grow their businesses, faced with a changing economy, higher numbers of diverse healing professionals in the marketplace, and an increasingly discerning, web-savvy audience of potential clients.
Through her experience in private practice and her role as Founder of The Resiliency Center, Elizabeth Venart has learned what it takes to succeed in the business of private practice. She believes strongly that one’s passion and skills offer the best guide for creating prosperity, and that only surefire way to grow a business is to have a clear vision and a solid plan.
Individual and Group Practice-Building Consultations and Workshops
In her work as a practice-building consultant, Elizabeth helps practitioners:
- Evaluate how they would like to transform their practices;
- Speak about their work with clarity and confidence;
- Assess their marketing style;
- Create a big picture marketing strategy to strengthen community awareness of their programs and services;
- and Begin taking concrete, meaningful action steps to generate greater prosperity in their businesses.
Elizabeth understands that professionals in the healthcare and healing arts fields are often uncomfortable with the idea of marketing their businesses, as they may associate marketing with sales and feel it is out of alignment with their reasons for entering the field (to help and educate people!). Having navigated through these misconceptions herself, she helps professionals learn to view marketing as an extension of their work – based in principles of education, service, and relationship.
Through individual and group consultations, as well as introductory workshops, she teaches practitioners to redefine marketing in a way that is expansive and energizing and to discover a personalized approach to practice-building that is sustainable over time. Healthcare professionals working with Elizabeth discover new ideas for how they can spread the word about their work - and create opportunities for those community members already seeking support to find and connect with them.
