Is YOUR organization Physician Friendly?
“When a workplace becomes toxic, its poison spreads beyond its walls and into the lives of its workers and their families.”
In our work helping thousands of over-stressed doctors recover from burnout, here is one of the most frustrating scenarios:
A coaching client and I work together to stop the downward spiral and get their energy and attitude back … and yet they are trapped inside a flagrantly toxic workplace.

They are working on themselves to build more life balance and a more ideal practice, hope returning, feeling better.
And each work day pounds them back to the bottom of the mountain in a marathon of inefficient systems, clueless leadership and sometimes outright hostility towards physicians and the basics of the practice of medicine.
It can be very disorienting, especially if your leaders say one thing and your experience of working here is completely different. Are you really seeing this?
So let's get objective, here and now:
