Coaching has been big in the business community for years, but while CEO’s and Presidents of Fortune 500 companies understand the power of coaching, it is still relatively new for physicians. Coaching brings out the best in people, regardless if you are a professional athlete, entertainer, CEO or doctor.
If you want to reach your full potential and reach the goals you have for your career and your life, then coaching is right for you. Coaching can help you find success, and find it faster and more efficiently than you can on your own.
The coaching process is tailored to your specific goals and areas you want to improve, such as career development, stress management, practice finances, launching a business, or relationships with staff or family.
Coaching is professional and confidential so you can feel comfortable working in a supportive and encouraging environment that is designed to help you overcome obstacles and achieve your goals.
Bob Nardelli - CEO, Home Depot
"I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities."
Coaching is the best way to develop personally and professionally.
The coaching process has many similarities to the patient consultation. It starts with taking a good history, giving the client/patient the opportunity to be heard and probing for what is causing the pain. Also, like a patient encounter, the reason for the initial consultation (i.e. the symptoms) may not be the actual diagnosis, just as with referred pain for example.
In the end, it is the relationship that matters. The client/patient defines the value of the experience based on their results. A good coach will strive to listen actively, offer a prescription for improvement and communicate effectively so that the client will have the best possible outcome.
John Russell - Managing Director, Harley Davidson Europe
"I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process."

Pete Carroll, Superbowl Winning Coach
"Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen."

Physician Entrepreneur Coaching
Would you like to add additional streams of income to your practice? Do you want to add revenue by starting a side business? Or are you considering starting a whole new career?
Physicians often need help with the business side of medicine, and all entrepreneurs are prone to ignoring the blind spots that often cause us to fail before we get started.
I will help you create a clear vision for your business, define specific goals, and develop a strategic plan to achieve those goals. In addition, you will learn the necessary skills in business development, marketing, sales, and team building from an experienced physician entrepreneur. I can help you significantly reduce the learning curve on your way to a successful business.
Physician Leadership Development
Are you struggling to get your team to live up to their potential? Have you accepted a leadership role and discovered that you don’t have the skills necessary for the job? Do you struggle to communicate effectively, run meetings efficiently, develop the talent of your team, or clearly express your vision?
Physicians are experts in the practice of medicine, but most of us have never learned the leadership skills necessary to manage a team or run an organization. Discover what successful entrepreneurs and leaders of Fortune 500 companies already know. Coaching will help you become a more effective leader more quickly than any other means.
I have completed the Florida Medical Association’s (FMA) Physician Leadership Academy and been certified as a coach by John C. Maxwell, the premier leadership expert in the world. I’ve also served as president for my county medical society and chair for the state young physicians’ section. Now let me put my experience and learning to use for you.
You don’t need to go back to school or get an MBA in order to become a successful leader. Most of the information they teach doesn’t relate to real world experience. You need someone to coach you through the day-to-day issues that arise so that you can learn the relevant skills you need to perform your specific duties as quickly as possible.
Do want a change in your career? Are you considering or even actively looking for a new job? The grass may be greener somewhere else, but how do you plan to get that position? Are you using the same technique that got you the job you hate now?
If your current position is not a good fit, I can help you discover the important values you want from your career, create your ideal job description, and outline a transition plan to achieve those goals. There are better ways to get noticed and attract great job offers than having a recruiter send your CV to everyone on their list. Let’s work together to find the best fit for you.
