I have just finished reading Dr. Sanet’s book on the real life experiences of an Osteopath. From the start of this book I was completely engaged with his descriptions and dialog. I am not in the medical field but in the aerospace industry in engineering management. I purchased this book as a benchmark on other professions on daily interaction with people. Similar to the medical profession there are many comparisons to problem solving and getting to a solution using a holistic approach. Dr. Sanet gives many insights in his upbringing and his path to helping others. Dr. Sanet repeatedly states that being a Dr. is a passionate profession that one can be idolized for social status and financial reward. From the start of Dr. Sanet’s book one can read that he is in this profession to help people and to educate and is humble in his methods and approach. This is the true practice of medicine. Sanet gives great examples where he cannot heal everyone and had some difficult situations on his journey. Sanet also give a simplistic approach to the practice of Osteopathy that every layman can understand. In bench marking this book Sanet states that areas of pain may not always be the location to the solution. Similar in the manufacturing world one much understand the entire production system to address the pain. If one were to focus on the symptom’s you may not get to the root cause of the situation and cause pain in another part of the production system. By reading Dr. Sanet’s book you can understand how the difference in the true practice of Osteopathy with a hand on approach is the key to solving issues. Similar to working in a production environment and engineer should always have a practical hands on approach to manufacturing such as actually manufacturing a part instead of “prescribing medicine” and considering that the cure. In the engineering world many companies will purchase automated machines to remove the human element. However, humans have individual intelligence which comes with built in problem solving ability similar to Osteopathy’s practice of the body to heal itself. Something a machine can never do. Corporations instead of investing in the workforce with education and actually listening to the shop floor mechanic; waste millions of dollars on automated solutions for a simple production problems. Sanet constantly brings back the memories of his mentors and people who have enriched his life and education. As an Engineering manager this book also brought back to me many of the Sr. Engineers who had a solid background in aerospace development. My memories of these past mentors and leaders also influenced me on how I approach managing the engineering workforce today. Each day I am presented with a new “patient” engineer with a personal problem or engineering issue. I break down each area has Sanet has with an approach that looks for the root cause. Sanet makes a good example in his text where past history many times is the trigger for behavior in the future. I use the same approach with people as many of the Sr. Engineers have had poor management in the past and the trust with the leadership and company has been broken. Dr. Sanet’s book does focus on his life and the practice of Osteopathy, however the stories that he writes and the situations can be used as a guide for any professional or parent on how to approach a problem an derive a solution without the quick fix mentality of today world. The goal of medicine is to cure the problem and not to have repeat customers. From my own perspective my goal as a manager is to work with the people, and build an organization with trust. These types of organizations work well and can be productive. I wish Dr. Sanet well and thank him for writing a well written book that is a bench mark for an approach to people!
His many anecdotes makes for fascinating reading as he weaves basic osteopathic concepts into everyday stories. No dogma, just heartfelt principles that change lives for the better.
I want to recommend this book to those who want to be helper for patients especially kids they are in trouble.
If you want to be a real osteopath , you have to read this book and to be his student.
