Coaching – The Programs
The Balanced Physician Programs Make Up For What Medical School Forgot To Tell You
It applies to physicians as to any other professionals: 85% of your success is determined by the combination of interpersonal and self-management skills and only 15% by technical (i.e. clinical) skills. This doesn’t mean that clinical training and education can be neglected but the best clinical skills cannot be truly leveraged without the appropriate interpersonal and self-management skills.
The Balanced Physician coaching and training programs don’t address clinical topics but all the other issues that come with being a successful, effective, and fulfilled physician:
- Lack of work-life balance and possibly even approaching physician burnout
- Disruptive behavior or just a lack of emotional control
- Demotivated staff or uncooperative peers
- “Loneliness at the top” as a physician leader
- Successful integration / on-boarding at a new position
- Performance issues, i.e. run late with appointments, run behind with paperwork, patient complaints or dissatisfying patient scores
Our programs are a fresh, enjoyable, non-punitive, and effective approach to develop and strengthen those executive “people” and life skills that medical school forgot – whether you are an overwhelmed physician struggling with career and life, or a successful physician who wants to stay on that path.

Multiple Formats to Fit your Specific Needs and Schedule
Whether you are a member of a larger healthcare organization, exploring innovative support programs for your physicians, or an individual physician, we offer our programs in a variety of services to support your development, effectiveness and results including:
Individual Coaching - It is most effective for the busy physician and physician leader who wants to make progress in the shortest amount of time. For convenience, coaching sessions are conducted via the telephone, in person, or Skype video calls on a weekly / bi-weekly basis. Appointments are set for the same day and time of every week so you can book them into your schedule. We also offer 1- or 2-day intensive on-site or off-site meetings for those motivated physicians who want to make significant improvements quickly. The coaching is designed to help you re-order priorities, take time to assess your career and personal life, and then take action… despite the uncertainties that frequently accompanies change! The goal is to create a values-based action plan designed to take you in the direction you desire.
Team and Group Coaching – adapts coaching principles for the small group context. Coaching sessions are conducted by phone, via Skype, or in person for groups ranging from 3-10 members. Groups can be several physicians coming together and working on a similar goal or entire health care teams. Group coaching programs can also enhance the ROI of many learning initiatives by sustaining the learning cycle for your staff, ensuring that learning is transferred to the work place. Many of our training programs offer group coaching programs as a follow up option.
Medical Staff Retreats – can be critically important in helping you maintain a focus on quality and efficiency in your practice / organization. We offer customized programs so that all the participants from your organization will receive the maximum possible benefit. Brainstorming sessions, group exercises, and keynote speeches are tailored to your specific vision and needs. Every activity is set up to engage and motivate while empowering them with critical skills and knowledge to be effective staff members and leaders.
Workshops, Medical Staff Meetings, CME Breakout Sessions, and Webinars - whether you organize a Grand Rounds topic at your hospital, a breakout session at an association meeting, a physician appreciation dinner, or a webinar for your medical staff, we offer a variety of topics in different durations that address physicians’ challenges and provide practical solutions.
Keynote Presentations – our 60-90 minute keynote presentations can be a great opener or closing presentation for physician appreciation dinners or medical conferences.
