How to achieve physician happiness despite a topsy turvy world

3-14-11happydoctorsAs satisfying as my physician coaching work is, a depressing aspect of this work is that I receive regular communications from physicians in distress who are reaching out for help. The majority who write to or call me are miserable practitioners who feel that their physician happiness and well-being are suffering. As a result, they are deeply discouraged about their futures and worry they won’t survive one to four decades of “more of the same.”

While it’s exciting to work with physicians on career change, or business ventures or leadership development, it saddens and alarms me to witness this “brain drain” of excellent physician practitioners quitting medicine and opting for nonclinical physician careers. I, too, quit practice years ago, and opted for a nonclinical career in my own quest for greater physician happiness! [Read More…]

A magic success trick for physician leaders

9-3-15magic trickI’ve had the privilege of working a lot recently with both emerging and seasoned physician leaders … And thoroughly enjoying my coaching clients! I so appreciate the fact that physicians are smart, quick to catch on and often driven when stepping into a leadership role. Our conversations tend to be rich and wide-ranging.

Despite the diversity of personalities and leadership styles I’m encountering (I typically have my clients complete their DiSC profile assessment), I notice that there are several recurring themes that emerge in our work. [Read More…]

A physician business owner keeps abreast of SEO changes

physician business owner Responsive web design Whether you’re a non-clinical physician business owner or a physician with a medical practice, it’s vital to keep up with our changing world… Right?

To my chagrin, I realized several months ago that my website, which has been highly productive, was now out of date. Yes, it was a ranking well with the search engines, but that was all about to change.

Dr. Google had once again changed the rules! But, in fairness, it was due to our behavior as humans. It seems that the computer is no longer where we do most of our searching. With a plethora of devices such as smart phones and tablets, we’re preferentially peering at these much smaller screens as we hunt for information. And my trusty old website was no longer cutting it!

I had to have a website worthy of a contemporary physician business owner. [Read More…]

Physician financial wellbeing … turning to the expert for insights

4-30-15Denniston_financialfreedombkAt last, I’ve been able to check an item off my to-do list. And what a valuable exercise that was. Many months ago, I was sent a draft release of a book written by Dave Denniston CFA, titled “Freedom Formula For Physicians: A Prescription for First-Class Financial Health for Doctors”(A).

People send me books all the time for review and I have the best intentions of doing so… I really do! And when they reach out to me personally, and politely and persistently request my opinion, my sense of obligation shoots up. This inevitably means a new item on my to-do list, and a nagging sense of something incomplete until I can check it off. I do try to follow through on my promises!

I’m happy (and relieved) to be able now share what I learned from Denniston’s book with its prescription for financial health for physicians.

Unless you have some big fancy economics or MBA degrees behind your name, I believe even those of you physicians or readers who consider yourselves financially literate will benefit from the primer’s many insights. [Read More…]
