My Coaching Philosophy

  • Like many clinicians who find themselves in leadership positions, I learned the hard way that leaders aren’t born but developed. Leadership is a skill like any other that requires practice, self-reflection, and humility in order to be as effective as possible.
  • I have a special focus on working with engaged, curious individuals and teams to support their leadership development. I’m committed to helping others become the most effective leaders they can be for the benefit of their patients, their team members, and so they may have a fulfilling and sustainable career.
  • Specific coaching topics may include (but are not limited to): communication skills, influence, leading change, conflict management, team dynamics, time management, giving feedback, work/life balance, developing a vision, and many more!
