Feeling Disrespected by Your Current Employer? Take these Two Steps.

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

Adversity does not build character ... it reveals it.

In the heat of the pandemic, physicians, nurses and all front line staff have revealed their character

    • In the face of complete chaos and overwhelm, you have doubled your efforts to make a difference. Day after day you run back into the battle - even when people call COVID a hoax and accuse you of lying just to make more money. 

    • In some cases you have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of your patients: the current COVID death count of US Healthcare workers stands at 3607 and some have taken their own life in the depths of despair over not being able to do more.

Adversity also reveals the character of your leaders, administrators and managers too.

These are the people who create the systems and culture of your workforce. Put them under stress and their character is revealed just as clearly as yours.  

How are your leaders doing these days?

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.
