My Approach

What I bring to the partnership with my clients

  • 1. Professional Coach focusing on physicians and health care leaders
  • 2. Mindset – attitude based on psychology of positivity
  • 3. Approach – engage clients as equals, be curious, not there to give advice
  • 4. Purpose – development, learning & growth, agent for change (while keeping in mind the organizational priorities)

I Feel like a sherpa when I coach: Whereas a sherpa sets up the camp, manages the gear and ensures everyone’s safety, I’m here to set the stage of the discussion, manage the tools & frameworks for coaching as well as ensuring a safe respectful environment for my clients
