What others have said about the Growth into Greatness Institute...

  • “My staff and I really appreciate the GIG approach of helping us achieve the practice we want for ourselves. During the 30+ years I’ve been in the practice, I have occasionally had some outstanding staff and consultants but I never experienced the feeling I have right now”
    — Dr. Russ Tabata | Honolulu, HI
  • “In nine months, I have achieved everything GIG said they would do. My production increased by $25,000 per month, continuously. My staff overhead went from 33% to 28%. My goal is 27%, GIG’s goal was 55% I paid off the GIG tuition in three months.”
    — Dr. Jim Delgado | Albany, OR
  • “ Mark is a great guy and a great source of inspiration and leadership but the real gem with GIG is Deb. She is by far the best consultant we have ever done business with Deb was able to help us clarify our vision for delivering private care dentistry. We successfully reduced our overhead from 72% to 57% and see how we can lower it even more. Our production stabilized during that time and we never reduced our take home pay or considered joining an insurance plan”
    — Drs. David & Douglas Sandquist | Las Vegas, NV
  • “Our budget, office hours, core values and team morale are better off since GIG came into our lives. Mostly, we are thankful for the friendships we have gained”
    — J. Art Mirelez Jr. DDS, FICOI, FAGD | Fresno, CA
  • "What I found most interesting when we began working together again, was how well your health centered model aligns the teachings of the Kois Center."
    — Dr. Edward Borio
  • “Practice overhead is down to 62% from 72% when we started. I am continuing to work on lowering overhead to get below 60%. I am able to take more time away from the practice than ever before to be with my family”
    — Dr. Phillip E. Redd | Duvall, WA
  • "For those who may be skeptical about what you can provide and the value of the bottom line, let me share this. During the first year I increased my net income by 80% and my business solvency account grew as much as your tuition."
    — Dr. Michael D. Cary DMD

Seven strategies for practice development and personal growth.

Our Philosophy

The Growth Into Greatness team encompasses over 280 years of skills, knowledge, tools and direction to help you get where you want to go not by hope alone, but by design. Designing a future in life is indeed a worthy goal to continually strive for in your business and life. If you could do better should you? If you could reach your potential, should you?

By enabling shifts in how people think, interact, learn and grow, a foundation for deep organizational change can be laid. Building a solid foundation in your business and your life, we believe, are the keys to your continued success personally and professionally. Nothing in life comes without a price. Success laws and principles of life never change. Learning the systems and strategies to become all that we can is a process, an art; the art of personal development. This process is open for individuals who seek it, ask questions, and continually search for more. Those who do will become more, and in so doing, leave a legacy of wisdom and knowledge to pass on to the next generation.

In creating the plan for your future, a solid foundation will be your entrance into greatness. Practicing daily disciplines will determine the success of your plan on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual basis. Consistent renewal and reflection as to the direction and course you are taking will be necessary. You will be provided tools on this journey that will assist you, support you, and empower you to effect change in your personal and professional life.
