Compelling conversations have the power to evoke change.

The coaching process is a series of in-depth conversations that build a partnership between client and coach in support of the client's growth and development objectives.

In each coaching session, you choose the focus of conversation and the discussion is guided by you - where you are now, where you want to be in the future and what you are willing to do to get there. The conversations are designed to develop clarity and to generate results from your choices and action.

At the outset, we explore what you want to achieve and map out a personalized coaching plan with defined outcomes. Where relevant, I will incorporate assessment tools that help uncover insights and offer a new perspective and opportunities for growth. As sessions continue, goals and objectives may evolve and change and are re-evaluated on an ongoing basis.

The coaching engagement typically happens over 6 to 12 months. The one hour essions are scheduled biweekly or monthly, depending on your timeline and the urgency of your goals. Sessions are held over video conference or in person.

Throughout the engagement, the coaching will be:

  • focused on your agenda
  • based on real-time challenges that you are facing rather than hypothetical situations
  • action oriented so you develop and implement practical strategies for growth
  • completely confidential, enabling you to openly explore limiting beliefs, fears or insecurities that you wouldn’t share with peers, colleagues or supervisors
  • holding you accountable, so you follow through on your planned actions

Physicians and Healthcare Executives

Research shows that 68% of organizational leaders are overwhelmed by the rapid pace of change. In healthcare, the situation is exacerbated by continuously increasing clinical demands, growing administrative and academic pressures, tighter budgets and now, the added strain of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Studies indicate 40 – 60% rates of burnout among physicians across all specialties, and healthcare executives are reporting greater challenges than ever before.

Just like coaching for athletes, this program will help you set specific goals, improve commitment and motivation, manage stress and conflict, and create sustained results that will maximize your impact and success.

  • Identify your natural strengths and learn how to use them.
  • Build high performing teams.
  • Manage conflict and tension.
  • Create more balance between your professional and personal life.
Leadership Development

INCREASED SELF-AWARENESS

Self-awareness is the foundation of leadership excellence. We will work together to help you understand your values, strengths, areas of development, passion and purpose, and how all these link to your personal and professional goals. Understanding these aspects of who you are impacts the way you live, work and lead.

ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP

Courage, adaptability, commitment and creativity are crucial in facilitating system wide transformation. Learn how to challenge your assumptions and shift towards an adaptive leadership approach that will allow you to thrive during times of change.

DEVELOP HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS

Team performance is critical for organizational success. Through the coaching process you will develop a leadership style and strategy that inspires the creation of a shared team vision, enhances communication, sharpens negotiation skills and improves collaboration. 

TIME MANAGEMENT AND PRIORITIZATION

Improve focus, presence and personal resilience. Develop a personal operating system that will allow you to be more organized, productive and energized in achieving your goals. 

Managing Stress & Burnout

Burnout has reached epidemic proportions, with 50% of employees, across all sectors, describing themselves as feeling burnt out. As many as 95% of corporate leaders have stated that employee burnout is sabotaging workforce retention and wellness. While research has focused specifically on workplace burnout, people can experience burnout in different aspects of their lives. 

There are six key components that contribute to individual and team burnout: workload, control, fairness, values, reward and community.

Potential for burnout increases when any of these six areas are misaligned with expectations and capabilites in career and/or home environments. Over time, engagement and performance erode because the demands being placed on people exceed the physical and emotional resources they have available to deal with the stressors.   

TO AVOID OR RECOVER FROM BURNOUT YOU NEED TO:

  • Identify the areas that are misaligned and leading to burnout
  • Get clarity on your values and goals
  • Choose where you want to make changes
  • Learn to integrate rest and renewal into your routine
  • Reduce the time and energy you spend worrying
  • Create and execute a plan that allows you to thrive
Team Development & Effectiveness

Research shows that teams who achieve high levels of participation and cooperation are more productive and creative. This requires mutual trust among members, a sense of belonging, belief in a worthwhile purpose, group efficacy and an understanding that everyone benefits when the team is effective as a whole.

You will develop a leadership style and strategy that improves interpersonal dynamics, inspires constructive interactions, creates efficient work processes and enhances team effectiveness.

HELP YOUR TEAM ACHIEVE IMPACT AND RESULTS:

  • Maximized activity and energy
  • Follow-through on commitments
  • Resilience and adaptability to change
  • Improved quality and performance
  • Engagement and cooperation
  • Productive conflict
  • Higher levels of creativity and innovation
Executive Onboarding

For executives entering a new position, the first 18 months are crucial to long term success. More than half of executives fail during this period leading to wasted resources and organizational turmoil. The solution is ensuring new executives are properly supported during their time of transition and integration. The executive onboarding program supports a leader's successful acclimation into the organization or team culture, setting short and long-term goals, dealing with challenges and building key stakeholder relationships.

In this program I will partner with you through the adjustment process – as a trusted sounding board, an experienced navigator of people and politics and a communications expert – to support and accelerate your transition into the new role. The process will leverage your strengths, identify the gaps and set you up for success.
