RESILIENCE Won't Save you now - you need a New You for the New Normal on the far side of this COVID19 Pandemic

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

I have talked to hundreds of physicians in the last six weeks and two things are consistent.

1) Everyone knows the Old Normal is gone. There is no going back.

Once we get through the infectious disease crisis, round two of COVID-19 is the economic impact on your organization. Can you be certain at all what your practice will look like this time next year?

2) AND YET ... Most doctors don't want the Old Normal back again in the first place. 

No one is longing for a return of the good old days of EMR overwhelm, the fee-for-service hamster wheel, Pajama Time documentation at home and burnout rates of 50% and more. Who wants that back again? Isn't there a better way?

Isn't there a way to practice your craft as a helper, healer, caregiver and Lightworker without so much waste and brain damage??

The answer is YES - we know it to be true. And yet, the New Normal is completely unclear at this time. There is a chasm to cross.

Drop in Group Coaching/Support This Weekend - the Lightworker's Gathering

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

Seattle, Washington Friday, March 27th, 2020

Here in Phase One of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I have been in touch with dozens of doctors and leaders in our network.

Things are stressed, chaotic, disjointed weird, dangerous, unique and confusing ... and all of us know this will be a prolonged siege rather than a two week skirmish.  

We are all beginning to realize the depth of the transition we are facing.

This is Blog Post #324
Complete Blog Library  is Here

There will be no returning to NORMAL here. If you think we will be back to the good old days of "the way things were last year" at some point in the future ... let me be the first to gently show you that is not going to happen.

Unfortunately the NEW NORMAL is still unformed, unclear and swirling in the midst of the acute crisis.

What does this mean for you personally, for your family, your practice, your career?

Great questions ... with embryonic answers beginning to emerge.

Let's get together and talk about it all.

I will be holding drop in group coaching hours on Saturday and Sunday from 9 - 11 AM Pacific Time here in the USA.

No cost
No obligation
A group conversation within our TheHappyMD community

Stop Physician Burnout: The Three Laws of Personal and Practice Transformation

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

As a professional coach, I help physicians create personal and practice Transformation.


- a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance.
- or a metamorphosis during the life cycle of an animal.
==> that orients an individual/organization in a new direction and takes it to an entirely different level of effectiveness

Evolution, recasting, reorganization, rearrangement, renewal, rejigging, reworking, renovation, overhaul, revolution

There are patterns, success factors and even laws that cover this work.

Over the course of my personal life and in my experience as a coach to hundreds of physician clients - often suffering from physician burnout - I have noticed several obvious patterns in what works and what does not when it comes to this concept of transformation.

In this blog post let me show you some of the major transformation success patterns. I will call them "laws" here because they behave similar to the laws of nature - universal, immutable, inviolable ... like gravity.

These three laws are mandatory checkpoints on the way to any transformation in your life or practice.

Meet our new Physician Coach here at

Our website is committed to being a safe haven for physicians worldwide. One visit here will show you a reference library of hyper-focused tools and support for burnout. With just a couple clicks you can book a one hour phone consult with a physician coach - at no cost.

Since 2010 our island of support on the web has been available 24/7 for anyone with internet access worldwide. As I write this blog post we have 9721 members from 63 countries around the world.

We have helped thousands of physicians so far via these Discovery Session Consults and via the book and our live training events. With 25,000 web visitors a month ... the demand for support from over stressed doctors just keeps expanding.

What started out as my one man effort to serve our people has uncovered far greater need than I can address on my own.

So earlier this year I assembled everything I have learned in over 1700 hours of one-on-one physician coaching and started to build our Coaching Team.

I will hand select coaches with the following qualifications:
