Coaching - 1:1 and groups - Reclaiming Your Joy and Wholeness.
Physician and health care provider well-being is receiving increasing recognition as crucial to clinician resilience, to patient safety, patient satisfaction, and cost-effective coping with the complex, changing demands of medicine.
As you look at your life now, at your job, your family, your personal, recreational, social, spiritual priorities, are you on track? Is your time and energy devoted to the people, activities, and things that you value most? Are you where you want to be, doing what you want most to do? On your personal and professional journey, are you energized and heading in the right direction?
I invite clinicians to take an inventory, a self-assessment of your own personal spiritual, and career path; and then facilitate you to take action in alignment with your core values, vision, and strengths, your “true north”. In this context, your “true north” represents the sum and balance of your individual choices, values, strengths, and calling, aligned with your sense of meaning and purpose. You thrive and flourish when you live in alignment with your “true north”.
Through your training, and in today’s medical climate, some clinicians lose sight of their own personal values and calling. Finding your individualized “true north” involves exploring what you care most about, what you are good at, and what life balance is for you.
How do you align your choices, your career/calling, your soul and roles, and your life balance with your “true north”? The pathway and life balance that leads to personal and professional well-being is dynamic and different for each person. I find that it is crucial to listen deeply and seek to understand your inner story, to ask questions, to allow silence, and to be present, as we together seek answers that may be deeply personal and spiritual in nature. I meet personally for an initial comprehensive consultation and discovery process, followed by in-person or telephone conversation weekly to provide a safe place to share, to question, to welcome feelings and fears, and seek meaning and purpose in what you are experiencing. This path of self discovery, leads to clarity, and aligned action in pursuit of your wholehearted dreams, goals and vision.
