ASP Retreat I

Mission Possible: A clear personal and professional vision, defined core values, and a compelling mission are required for success.

During this three-day retreat, you will disconnect from everyday busyness and connect with other doctors and spouses/so's attending. We will further assess where you are today, identify if this is really where you are meant to be, explore your biography, and clarify what your best destiny really is...if it were the best it can be.

“We cannot control the future; however, ASP allows you to get into creative cooperation with your best possible future.”

We will start with an overview of principle-centered, values-based Applied Strategic Planning (ASP). By learning the powerful ASP process, you will create a clear and inspiring vision of your best possible future, personally and professionally. We will assist you in crafting a functional personal mission and set of guiding core values. Plus, you will immediately begin to draft meaningful, attainable goals and objectives.

As a huge added benefit, you will increase your understanding of your partner’s hopes and dreams for their own and your shared future. Plus, you will learn principles of Steward leadership for you and Stewardship for your team—forging greater ownership and a more rewarding practice for all. The insightful information gained in this retreat and your new direction prepare you for Retreat II.

What Participants are Saying

“Bob Frazer has been a friend, mentor and teacher to me and many throughout dentistry and corporate America for the past 30 years I've known him. He is an accomplished speaker, an articulate communicator, an intensely detailed Strategic Planning leader, and a compassionate and affective personal and professional coach. His insights are unique, his application of principles of learning are critically important, and most important of all, he helps people reach their life's goals by helping them clearly establish their personal and professional vision of their most preferred future, and then guides them towards that end. He has impacted my business tremendously and I've watched as he has added directly to the bottom line of his clients with increased revenues, lower costs, higher profitability and greater peace and fulfillment. There are few in the workplace I could recommend as strongly as Bob Frazer and his team at R.L. Frazer and Associates.”

Bob & Bill, I left Austin with an EI – hangover, in love with my team and confident that I can become the leader I imagine. These are rough times in Michigan and in dentistry. You two together (the combination of psychology and advanced restorative dentistry) are amazing.

What Participants are Saying

Bob, you are a rare individual with a wide array of talents that will prove invaluable to any organization that is fortunate enough to choose to work with you. Although, you knew very little about the laser industry, you quickly came up to speed through your exceptional listening and synthesizing capabilities.

Your passion for the critical importance of vision and strategic planning just radiates from you and is highly contagious. You can certainly prove that by seeing the folks here at Incisive. We always feel better about who we are and what it is we're doing, especially after spending time with you. Simply put, you resonate beautifully.

I wish you continued success as you grow your true calling of Applied Strategic Planning and as you transform organizations and their people into the best they can become. To say you're a dentist who is trained in strategic planning may be the understatement of the decade! You may be a dentist who has and is helping others have an exemplary practice, but you are a born visionary! I firmly believe that any entrepreneurial organization that wants to thrive in today's turbulent times would benefit from Applied Strategic Planning under your capable leadership. Thank you, Bob!

Thanks for an exceptional presentation yesterday (to the Indianapolis Study Club)! Everyone thought it was terrific. More importantly, it has started everyone thinking and re-examining their possibilities. For me, our Thursday dinner and the Friday meeting have given me some important ideas to think about. It has been a very positive experience!

What Participants are Saying

Your Applied Strategic Planning Series helped us get ready for a big transition as my soon-to-be partner, Todd Gruen, and I prepared to take over the practice of my partner at the time, Mickey Bernstein. As you know, Mickey has had a very successful practice and is President-elect of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Todd and I were about to try to fill some big shoes. Your program helped us identify where we needed to focus and to clarify who WE wanted to be. The involvement of the whole team made this process so much more powerful. Thanks for all your help!

Linda and I are enjoying some of the fruits of Applied Strategic Planning. I would pass on to your new students that my office has been on fire since the retreats.It is occasionally three steps forward and one step backwards, but we are definitely heading in the right direction and my team is still practicing the lessons you taught us. Can't recommend any planning course I've heard of more than what you took us through.

Dr. Rick Chapman, DDS

What Participants are Saying

The overall Applied Strategic Planning Series was very positive and stimulating. Previous goal-setting seminars did not provide the tools to fully develop and implement a strategic plan. This process provided a new sense of excitement and clarity about where we are. It gave the team a sense of purpose about what we're trying to achieve. As a result of this process, our 21-year-old practice grew 25% in both gross and net the year after completing ASP.

What Participants are Saying

The quiet, facilitative environment in a retreat setting coupled with the ability to mastermind with other couples and teams made Applied Strategic Planning a life-transforming experience. Bob is an exceptional mentor who has the expertise and personality to guide individuals through this challenging process. If you commit to the work required, your personal and professional lives will be those of your dreams.
