Physician Coaching ​Services

Individual coaching programs are designed around your goals.  Coaching sessions, ranging from 10 minutes to 1 1/2 hours, may be done over the telephone or in person. The frequency and time of meetings are set  to fit your needs.

Physician Leaders
Physicians are often promoted to leadership based on their personal achievements. As an administrator, skill in managing others to accomplish your goals is essential to your success.  Coaching services that can enhance this include:

  • Defining a vision of your unique leadership
  • Building motivated teams
  • Enhancing communication and influence
  • Conveying leadership presence
  • Improve social interactions
  • Conflict management expertise
  • Building resilience
  • Improving work life balance
  • Increased self awareness to enhance management of others ​​

Women Physician Leaders
Women physicians have natural strengths in creating strong connections and productive relationships.  Leadership coaching capitalizes on this while enhancing other capabilities including:  

  • Communicating as a leader
  • Asserting yourself gracefully
  • Building cohesion with different personality types
  • Having difficult conversations
  • Strengthening your motivational abilities
  • Finding the leadership direction that resonates with your life purpose
  • Finding a satisfying work, life balance

By nature and training, physicians are smart, hard working, and accustomed to solving problems independently.  Today's practice environment calls for heightened team work, improved efficiency, and enhanced "soft" skills in areas including patient communication and  motivation.  Coaching improves your ability to adapt to these changes by:

  • Getting the support you need from your staff

  • Improving the system to support your practice

  • Gaining cooperation from other service providers

  • Learning to communicate more efficiently to save time and effort

  • Adapting and coping with changing practice procedures

  • Controlling your impulses when people frustrate you

  • Maintaining empathy and understanding of your colleagues and patients

  • Being assertive yet sensitive to others

  • Improving work, life balance

  • Acquiring  renewed energy
