The roles of the executive and the physician contrast in their very nature; we help you understand the difference.

The roles of the executive and the physician contrast in their very nature; we help you understand the difference.

The roles of the executive and the physician contrast in their very nature: executives act as one expert on a team of many, collaborating with and leading a team to find complex solutions, while physicians are used to prescribing advice as the sole expert in their fields.

Often expecting quick results to surprisingly ill-defined problems within the C-suite, medical professionals experience “Physician Whiplash” as they transition to leadership roles.

We work with physicians and senior teams to remedy this problem, helping:

  • Shift from a clinical orientation into executive leadership
  • Create a physician leadership structure that impacts strategic priorities and desired outcomes
  • Develop leadership capabilities the physician executive can immediately put into action
  • Ensure close alignment between physician leaders and their administrative partners.

Our Physician Executive Advantage eschews the cookie-cutter approach to physician leadership development in favor of regular one-on-one coaching sessions with occasional staff/team observations. In these development meetings, we work with physician executives to help them learn the leadership practices and self-awareness skills that will enable them to meet their challenges and hit their goals.
