Athletes and business leaders have coaches… as a high performer, don’t you deserve a coach too? If you are like many physician leaders, you may have moved into leadership due to clinical expertise or interest but may have never received the training you need to be an effective leader. Managing individuals and teams, delegating tasks, building consensus, communicating an organizational vision, and giving and receiving feedback are common challenges physician leaders face. You may never have developed the emotional intelligence to read your own emotions or those of others. Because physicians are typically very self-critical, physician leaders are particularly vulnerable to suffering from an imposter syndrome, worried that if they are truly known, others will find out they are not as smart as they seem. People probably consider you a success but that may not be your belief.

Professional, career, and leadership coaching have a well-recognized presence in the business world and are moving into the healthcare arena. Creation of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate AND Dr. Atul Gawande’s 2011 New Yorker article about coaching for physicians are emblematic of this trend.
