Physician Leadership Coaching

What is coaching, and what can it do for you?

Coaching for leaders is a strategy that offers practical tools to help develop the capabilities of high-potential performers.  It can lead to insights, learnings and forward movement, and allows you to achieve the outcome that you desire.  A coaching relationship offers a safe supportive environment, tailored to your needs, in which you can challenge yourself, build on your strengths, learn and grow.  With coaching, you can enhance your leadership skills, capabilities and performance, enabling you to:

  • Help you realize your potential and ensure that you are currently on the right leadership trajectory
  • Increase your self-awareness, and emotional intelligence
  • Build relationships and engage others effectively
  • Improve communication and interpersonal skills to engage others and develop coalitions
  • Navigate the constant changes in the uncertain and complex environment of the health system
  • Lead and support innovation in healthcare
  • Become accountable for your decisions
