Leadership by Design - Practice Transitions



Leadership by Design was founded by the late Dr. Jim Schroeder, a former Richmond dentist in private practice for over 30 years, dental educator, leadership consultant, and motivational speaker. Today, his daughter, Elizabeth Schroeder Craig serves as the company's President and Senior Transitions Specialist. She and the Leadership by Design team continue to serve the transitional needs of dentists throughout the state and at every stage of their career - from graduation to retirement. 

Are you thinking about hiring an Associate or Partner? Considering a merger or acquiring a satellite location? Perhaps you're ready to create a retirement strategy? Even the smallest of transitions requires thoughtful evaluation, planning, and crystal clear communications between all parties involved.  

One of the greatest challenges leaders face today is with the sheer amount of decisions required for any effective change to occur.  Having a trusted team of dental-specific professionals by your side can make the experience far less stressful for everyone involved. For more than 10 years, Leadership by Design has developed a comprehensive and diverse range of resources and industry-specific experts designed to help you stay on task while optimizing your results. More importantly, by working with our team, you’re able to spend less time on the details and more time on the end goal. 

If you have important decisions to make about hiring, buying, or planning your retirement – schedule a complimentary phone consult so we can talk about where you are today – and where you want to go. As a proud member and supporter of the Virginia Dental Association, all VDA members receive a discount of 10%.  
We look forward to meeting you,

Elizabeth Schroeder Craig, President
"Transitions are personal. So are we."
