FAQ

Who Needs a Coach ?

We all do! 

Athletes, CEOs, C- suite administrators all have them. 

Physicians need them!

 

Physicians in general are all overachievers, type A personalities. 

We are goal oriented, self-sacrificing and have honed the art of delayed gratification. 

Do you feel unfulfilled? Wondering if this is really what you worked so hard for? Wondering if there is more for you out there? 

 

With burn-out ravaging the ranks of physicians, more and more doctors are asking themselves these questions. If you have, know that you are not alone. 

 

The Coaching Ally can help. 

 

With evidence-based curriculum and coaching our certified physician coaches will help you discover your passion again and create a vision for where you see your big, beautiful life going. 

Hands Up

Coaching vs Therapy 

Many people have no understanding what coaching is and what it is not. I didn’t necessarily when I started out on this journey. 

 

Therapy occurs when a licensed therapist listens to a client with the goal of diagnosing problems. Often this  leads to a specific intervention, medication or therapeutic plan. 

Coaching on the other hand is performed by coaches, not licensed psychologists or psychiatrists, who work with a client to help them understand their mindset, their unique challenges and goals and help them develop strategies to move forward, so they can  accomplish all they hope to. 

Often therapists focus on the past, whereas coaches focus on the future.

Why Invest in Coaching?

The Business Imperative for Coaching

Top 5 reasons to invest in coaching:

 

1. BURN-OUT

Burned-out physicians are costing your institution potentially thousands, if not more. 

 

2. ENGAGEMENT

Burned-out physicians are not engaged.

 

3. LIABILITY

Burned-out physicians have lower productivity, and are more prone to errors and thus harm to patients and liability.

 

4. REPUTATION

Burned-out physicians can tarnish the hospital's reputation because they are not as engaged with patients or invested in productivity and outcomes.

 

5. RETENTION

Also, if they quit, the time, energy and money spent recruiting, hiring, and orienting a new physician has been estimated to cost between $500,000 to $1 million per physician. 

 

It is much wiser, and cheaper, to invest in physicians who are already established at your organization. 

 

Coaching works! 

 

Randomized controlled trials have proven that physicians ( both staff and residents) have higher well being indexes after coaching programs, as well as higher engagement scores and less likely to leave employment scores. 

 

Start investing in your staff and hospital's future now.
