Medical careers afford little time to think about who you are, what you want and how to get there – conditions that often lead to burnout.
As a resident or fellow moving to the next career phase, uncertainty can make it hard to know how to proceed. As an attending physician trying to set priorities amid complex demands, you might be looking to more effectively manage your time.
Getting clear about your priorities and caring for your own needs first makes you better positioned to provide the best care to your patients.
Academic careers offer discovery, freedom and dedication to subjects that stand to change lives. But maybe you want more.
Are you looking to think purposefully about your career despite distracting challenges such as external funding, commission work, grants and tenure?
Would you like to be more effective in your current role or advance your career?
What would you like to accomplish and be known for?
When you’ve reached a crossroads in your career or want to build upon your success by taking your career to the next level, it’s important to consider who you are, what you want and how to get there. LJD coaching intrinsically unites your business operations with your colleagues, staff and clients – offering solutions and perspectives that enhance them all.
Advancing your career often is much harder than it sounds. There’s little energy left to change or improve your career when your existing job is all-consuming. Plus, while you feel the need for change, you may be at a loss for what you want or may be unable to think through possibilities in a constructive way.
People are an organization’s most valuable asset. That’s why one of the most important investments a leader can make is to align the organization’s values and needs with those of the people entrusted to fulfill its mission.
Too often individuals or teams fail to achieve their goals because values, abilities and skills across an organization are misaligned. Strong leaders value their people, recognize their strengths, and align these skill sets to achieve maximum efficiency and outcomes.
