Are you taking care of yourself, doctor?
So, there are a few things they didn’t teach you in medical school. It seems that being a physician is one of the most difficult professions anyone can choose to take on. So much is expected and demanded from you in countless unexpected ways, each and every day.
Have you become disillusioned with the reality of your life as a physician? Has your career unfolded the way you’d hoped? Are you relating effectively with your patients, your staff, and your colleagues? What happens when one of your patients dies? How are your personal relationships with your spouse, your kids, family and friends? Are you able to manage your time and priortize demands? And—perhaps most importantly—how is your inner life?
Let's face it.
You're a good doctor—a great clinician—but somehow your day-to-day reality feels like it’s not what you signed up for. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and disillusioned by the endless pressures and demands on your time and energy. And maybe it’s even gone so far that your employer, colleagues or family have approached you to discuss particular behavior concerns.
Sound familiar? Perhaps a professional coaching relationship can benefit you.
What does a successful life look like to you?
As your coach, I’ll help you define, then move toward your own personal vision of a successful life. Our time together will be focused exclusively on you. I will listen intently and provide unbiased, objective feedback. You will develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the way you affect the people around you. Together, we’ll tease out your authentic desires and create specific goals. Then I’ll hold you accountable to do what you say you want to do.
Examples of some things we might work on together include:
Creating specific intentions and goals for personal growth
Deepening awareness of yourself, your motivations, and your behaviors
Developing healthy boundaries
Integrating work, family, and personal needs
Developing specific mindfulness practices for stress reduction
Improving interpersonal communications
Honing leadership and management skills
Practicing effective time management and delegation
Exploring new possibilities for career satisfaction
Physicians face unique challenges.
So you need a coach who understands the complex context of today’s healthcare environment. For almost 30 years, I have partnered with physicians, practices, hospitals, and related organizations in a myriad of settings and roles, so I get what you’re up against.
I believe we were meant to live happy, fulfilled, joyful lives, grounded by meaningful work and giving back to our communities. Life should be rich and satisfying, not stressful and defeating. And that’s the conviction I will bring into our coaching relationship.
