Testimonials

What if you could join this group of “daring doctors” who have taken steps to become change agents, exemplary leaders and masters of their destiny . . .

Read what a few of my clients are saying about their journey to fulfillment as  physician leaders, physician entrepreneurs and physician career adventurers…

I knew the answer to the question, “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” for years before I met Dr. Gaillour. What I did not know was how to believe it and achieve it.
Within a few short months of beginning a coaching relationship with Dr. Gaillour, I was making major progress on my passion for speaking, writing, and teaching people how to enjoy outrageous health.
You can make progress on your own, but you can make massive progress with Dr. Gaillour as your coach!Douglas A. Fullington, MD

Francine has been a pleasure to work with. She has the ability to take a high-level look at you as an entire person to gain a real understanding of what makes you tick. Gaining this type of insight is often the most difficult step in career transition planning in pursuit of greater life satisfaction. She is a master at taking this insight and giving you concrete steps to move toward fulfilling your goals.

I wish I had met Francine and understood the value of strategic career planning 15 years ago when I began my professional career. Thanks Francine!

One needs to follow one’s bliss ala Joseph Campbell. However, it is not enough to know in one’s heart that a change is needed to take one professionally and personally to the next level. One must define the change, set initial goals and flesh out process details. Coaching with Francine has helped me do exactly that in a logical, focused and efficient manner.

In the past year I have completed the initial development phase of a Pain Management curriculum for medical schools and will eventually be making a transition from clinical practice to academics. This is a dream I’ve had for some time. I’m also currently pursuing my natural interest and passion for Medical Ethics and envision that this to be another area of career fulfillment.

After the introductory coaching session, I went far beyond my comfort zone and formally met with my supervisor to discuss my career path and options.

When I eventually decided to leave the company for another opportunity, Francine guided me through the process and gave me truly inspired advice . . . I saw things differently and did things differently, knew better and did better, and accomplished a career transition in one short year with coaching.

Francine is a brilliant strategic thinker, unrelenting in her focus, and constant in her support.

I fully and wholeheartedly recommend the coaching services of Dr. Francine Gaillour. Over the past 13 months, Dr. Gaillour’s insight and advice has helped me to achieve remarkable breakthroughs in both my professional and personal life. A newfound clarity of purpose and life-direction has transformed my relationships with colleagues, my wife, and family.

In line with my life’s passions, I’m taking a sabbatical year with my wife, pursuing Jewish spiritual studies in Jerusalem . I also have a book-in-progress, under the working title “Jacob’s Inheritance: Ancient Wisdom for Success and Prosperity”.

Dr. Gaillour has made a world of difference in the quality and direction of my life. I eagerly look forward to working with her in the future.

Dr. Gaillour became my executive coach about 2 years ago at a turbulent time in my career. Since then I have successfully transitioned to a leadership position and accomplished important milestones in my career under her guidance.

Most importantly, Dr. Gaillour has steered me toward an authentic and spiritual style of leadership which has impacted far beyond my work environment into my home as well.

A few years ago I started a consulting business . Problems I have been struggling with for years have been resolved within weeks of working with Francine. I recently signed on a multi-billion dollar healthcare corporation for a significant consulting engagement, the process made much easier with her expert assistance.

Francine is a natural coach. Her excellent listening skills combined with her vast experience in the medical business world have helped me achieve “a hah!” moments.

My coaching sessions with Francine covered a range of areas from troubleshooting office politics while at a consulting firm to brainstorming about the creation of my own business.

What I found to be most helpful, and what truly is Francine’s gift, is her ability to think outside the box given a set of business facts.

Her creative thinking regarding my interests was unique, refreshing and tremendously helpful, unlike my prior coaching experience.

Thank you for the very effective work that you have done with the Physician Management Council (PMC) of the MultiCare Medical Group. As we spoke last week, the PMC clearly interacts differently after your off-site session and feedback. There is a much increased awareness of individual personality types to the extend that they now jokingly refer to that being my “green element” or “blue element” that may be causing the conflict.

This allows them to identify possible conflict within the group much earlier and quantify it. The workings of the group on both key issues and in more relaxed environments is smoother and with I sense much more of a collective result.

From the first interactions, they have appreciated your frank and open assessment and I think you have made a substantial impact on the operations of this leadership group.

The Physician Executives of Georgia had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Francine Gaillour speak to the group on the topic “Authentic Leadership: It’s Personal” at our March meeting. Drawing from her own experience as a practicing physician, as well as working with numerous physicians going through transitions, she was able to identify key strategies that were applicable to all of us.

S he kept the topic exciting, and built in enough “audience participation” to keep the attendees engaged. The evaluations returned by the physicians after the session were uniformly positive, with interest expressed by many for a follow up workshop with Francine in the future. I am happy to recommend her, either to individuals in need of coaching, or to groups looking for a talented speaker who delivers the goods on personal leadership development!

“Your keynote presentation was quite well received and was an appropriate and timely topic…..especially since so many of the audience are in the middle of developing an integrated system.

I especially enjoyed the two hour [leadership development] session with the medical directors in the morning. The topics you raised were of clear high value….I think especially for this group where the degree of formal leadership training is limited/variable.”

I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks for your work with the Medical Director Roundtable last week. As always, the time spent around the table with fellow Medical Directors is well-spent. I appreciate the expertise that you bring to the work we are doing. This is a great time to be in community health care, as I am sure of the value of the work we are doing to our patients. And anything that I can do to increase my effectiveness is appreciated. It occurred to me that, as scientists, we are often neglectful of the “socialization” part of our education, and now I find myself in a position where this is perhaps more important than my science and technical skills.
