Return To Course Overview

The National Study Club

 Program Components

  • We conduct at least six teleconferences each year on thought-provoking topics that will positively impact your life and practice. Some are led by Dr. Bob Frazer, while others are short lectures followed by Q & A with experts relevant to high performing dental practices. Nido Qubein will join us again in 2009, as will Carl Hammerschlag and Bill Woodburn. Each teleconference is recorded for member review.
  • NSC holds a second two-and-a-half day retreat each year between late January and early May.  Dates are set based on member calendars.
  • We also read thought-provoking books and articles selected by me or recommended by an NSC member, thereby staying abreast of some of the best literature in our fields of inquiry, including leadership and personal growth.  Our first book for 08-09 is Daniel Goleman’s Social Intelligence.
  • Would it be valuable to learn how your key team members perceive you relative to the Five Practices of Exceptional Leaders (LPI) … and more importantly what you can do to grow one or more of these?  All new members receive the LPI Leadership Assessment – a $975.00 value at no fee.

The Retreats

Our retreat meetings are mornings only with the afternoons free for you to enjoy fellowship and recreation with likeminded people in some of the most beautiful retreat locations from the Rockies to the Desert Southwest – in such places as Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas and Arizona … and remember, the costs are tax deductible! Spouses and significant others are welcome at all our retreats and can enjoy the destination locations in the morning, then join their partner and others for some fun in the afternoons. Evenings are always special sharing times when we gather at Bob’s condo for a social and dinner together.

We rent at least one large house, casita or condo for the group to gather for breakfasts, plus a couple of lunches and dinners. In this way, we deepen the relationships quickly and share in a fun, casual atmosphere. 

Besides a lot of great learning, be prepared to play hard – with the option of arriving a day or so before a retreat – in addition to the R&R time in the afternoons after our morning session. We find this schedule allows the material to sink in and mature.  The next morning we begin further along than if we had worked all afternoon.
