I was called to work in healthcare because of the people. That calling led to an over 20-year career of which I am immensely proud. As the CEO for hospital teams that were nationally recognized for delivering high quality care and service, I understand the challenges and demands of balancing multiple priorities that directly impact people’s lives. I understand dynamic and impactful environments where the stakes are incredibly high. High stakes equal high pressure. The people you take care of and work with deserve your best self. You deserve to be your best self.
With these demands on you, how do you run at full speed for years at a time and not burn out or burn up? How do you perform at the required high levels and take care of yourself and your life? I have personally experienced these challenges. I did not always have the tools and capabilities to balance the demands of the profession and the demands of personal care. I would love to say I have it all figured out now, but it is a journey – one that I have been through and have a unique understanding.
Leaders, professionals, and providers are pulled in so many directions. This bandwidth issue can distract attention from focusing on and investing in our people and ourselves. Many industries talk a good game that our people are our biggest asset. Finding tangible and meaningful investments in our people, however, can be hard. We often use cookie-cutter development, training, and evaluation strategies. Those same approaches are used for our personal development. It is not working. Health care delivery is moving to patient-specific care versus the one-size-fits-all approach. Why are we not doing the same when working with our people? This question is what led me to become a coach. As a coach I partner with the individual or team so they can achieve the progress they desire. This can be personal progress or progress aligned with an organization’s goals. Each person or team has their own way up the proverbial mountain. With coaching, I help them find their path to the summit.
In additional to my professional experience as a senior executive, I am a university trained and internationally credentialed professional coach. My mission is to partner with you to achieve the progress you desire, personally and professionally.
I am credentialed through the International Coaching Federation (“ICF”). The ICF is the leading global organization for professional coaches. I trained at the University of Texas at Dallas as part of their Masters in Leadership and Organizational Development program.
All Kintsugi Group coaches are credentialed through the ICF which ensures consistency in approach as well as in adherence to professional standards, ethics and ongoing education.
Each person is unique. We will work together to determine what works best for you to keep moving forward.
Through our ongoing discussions, we will partner together to achieve the the progress you desire.
You will choose what we focus on. I will work with you to develop the action plan and timing.
