"Physician Leaders and Self-Coaching: 4 Key Questions," published in Physician Leadership Journal.
Authors: Joy Goldman, RN, MS, PCC and Platzer, Petra, PhD, ACC
In today's increasingly complex health care environment, many physician leaders are finding themselves in new roles or looking for ways to be more effective in their current positions. Health care is in a period of transformational change that is raising the bar for health care leadership skills, particularly in the area of managing complexity and ambiguity. In their experience as executive coaches partnering with physician leaders in health care, we have identified a common developmental theme: how to let go of the way you learned to lead as a provider and shift into a different way of leading that better prepares you for this transformational change. O.A.R.S. is a four-question series that will effectively and consistently navigate you toward success in your day-to-day and strategic operations. To begin using O.A.R.S., follow this process: 1. What outcome do you want? 2. What is you actual status now? 3. What research and development needed? 4. What next step are you going to take?

We inspire leaders to re-connect with their purpose to improve care for all!
Our pace of work and endless meetings has obliterated why we chose to work in healthcare in the first place. Nurses, Healthcare Executives, and Physicians are experiencing burnout at an unprecedented rate (over 50%). We care about the patient and family, and we care about YOU: The Provider.
Viewfinder Coaching and Consulting is committed to working with you, and your leaders, in being more effective and fulfilled in your role, so you can achieve what matters most to you as you lead transformative efforts to improve patient care, delivery, cost, and service. We use validated competency assessment tools to identify both task and relationship-based opportunities for development. Viewfinder Coaching and Consulting subscribes to the strengths-based management approach... we will support you as you leverage your strengths in a focused and intentional way, to achieve results.
"I hear your voice in my head..." C.B.
"Others give me tactics: You change me." M.C.
Our coaching approach is about transformation. We want you to think differently as a result of our work so that you permanently change how you do things: It's an "inside job" where your leadership impact is greater because you are able to see things differently and therefore have more options for achieving results. A client of ours recently provided the above quote and further went on to say: "you have such a way of dropping thoughts in my head that beg for further reflection." We know that reflection is critical for learning and development. Our coaching model provides the structure and inspiration to do just that.
Our coaches KNOW Healthcare! With combined experience amounting to over sixty years, we know your challenges; we know your history; we know your commitment and your passion for the patient and for quality care. We share your commitment. We could work in other industries. We have chosen to ONLY work in healthcare! Our clients are C-Suite Executives of hospitals and/ or Medical Groups; Nursing Executives; Physician Chairs and Medical Directors.
The usual change strategies haven't worked and your team's or organization's performance is stagnant or declining. You're wondering if you have the right players in the right positions? Is it a competency issue? Is it a structure issue? Are team dynamics getting in the way of getting the results you need to move to the next level? Are you structured for success and are all your systems aligned to support your strategic goals? Viewfinder Coaching and Consulting can help!
