How we helped a major health care institution
A nationally acclaimed health care institution sought to support the effective transition of one of its world-class physicians into a system-wide leadership role.
telos delivered a successful executive coaching engagement that began by thoughtfully pairing the physician-leader with a coach who fundamentally understood both the challenges and opportunities in today’s ever changing healthcare environment. This coach was also able to appreciate the human dimension of this transition and support the very personal elements of this physician-leaders shift in responsibilities.
The leader was able to adopt a more strategic approach to his new responsibilities. Specifically, he and his coach prioritized a set of key strategic initiatives and sequenced a series of subsequent action steps for the first six months in his new role. This mindful and deliberate approach to onboarding enabled the leader to move forward in his new role armed with a plan and the confidence that flows from this clarity. This unobstructed operational view also allowed him to focus on the important relational aspects of his new job, enabling him to more quickly and effectively build relationships with key stakeholders. His success has served as a model and a source of best-practices for physician-leader transitions at this institution.
