Listen to a recorded PREVIEW Call of this Event

From:  Francine R. Gaillour, MD, MBA, FACPE 
Executive and Career Coach for Physicians
Executive Director, Physician Coaching Institute

Dear Colleague,

You are cordially invited to a unique 2 and 1/2 day professional development retreat/workshop for physicians ready to uncover your true strengths and personal potential and began driving your career and leadership to new heights of success.  

If you're a physician who is tired of feeling "stuck" and now ready to become fully charged and optimistic about your future, then I encourage you to attend.  

As an executive coach and consultant, I've had the privilege of leading dozens of seminars, workshops and retreats for hundreds of physicians -- many of these for health systems and physician groups who requested my expertise to help their physicians and teams move forward toward transformational goals.  

And I’ve also taken dozens of my private physician clients through a proprietary career development one-on-one Client Strategy retreat as way of launching them on the way to their professional vision.  

This unique 2 and 1/2 day retreat/workshop was designed from the ground up for a specialized group of doctors like you --"daring doctors"--who all share the same desire and personal qualities:  You want to tap into your potential as a physician, as a life-long learner, and as a business person, and create a professional life that is commensurate with the talent, energy and ideals you possess. 

No more feeling "stuck" or sitting on the sidelines of career joy for you!

During your "journey" I will guide you through my proprietary, custom-developed physician career and leadership analysis and creative construction process designed to unleash your inner greatness and get you on a career path that feels right.

Whether it is your intention to achieve specific career goals, to become a more effective leader or communicator, to transition your career in new directions or into entrepreneurial ventures, or to create your ideal personal or family lifestyle, this interactive retreat workshop is where you will learn and experience firsthand the strategies and secrets I teach my private clients to uncover your "leader within" and make your core values and natural strengths the engine of your personal transformation and career development success.  

Overview of the Retreat/Workshop

This "Journey" experience will provide you a proven method of personal and career development that I have developed and refined over many years of consulting with and coaching physicians: 

1) You will embark on your career development pathway using a set of tools and strategies--my proprietary Physician Success Inquiry Method™--that has been tested and proven with dozens of physicians who have expanded their career, transitioned into new roles, and broken out of their self-imposed limitations to lead others with charisma and optimism.

2) You will get my expertise and personalized help in a forum that has been designed to "deconstruct" who you are and then reconstruct a path and approach that fits your strengths, values and mission -- not someone else's picture of how you should navigate your physician career.  

3) And, finally, because you will be among a group of committed and forward-looking physicians like yourself who have "self-selected" to set themselves on a path of discovery and achievement, you will experience the synergy and excitement of a genuinely supportive network of colleagues and peers. This is going to be a new experience for some of you, and believe me, it is awesome to experience the power of physicians who are rooting for each other.

  • Physicians contemplating a shift in gears and wondering what core strengths and skills they can apply in their next chapter of a full professional life

Learning Benefits You Can Expect:

Understand your core values and how these are the real driver of personal power, leadership effectiveness and career expansion or transition.   In other words, be genuinely fulfilled and passionate.

Learn how your natural strengths, along with your personality “hard wiring,” can open lines of communications to people you want as followers, advocates and career exploration allies.  Open up your world and find many people willing and ready to assist you and partner with you.

Take inventory of your current repertoire of skills and extract the pearls that are transferable to new situations plus the “must haves” you need for the next phase of your career journey.  Going forward you'll Navigate with a Strategic Career Plan--personalized for you-- not waste your time on a haphazard patchwork of skills-building.

Honestly examine how you “show up” right now, and learn the communication techniques that enable you to signal genuine personal power, optimism, and charisma. Build confidence the long-lasting way by knowing your personal "brand" - what you stand for.

Establish your vision and intention for your ideal leadership role, professional situation, or future career and craft your Personalized Strategic Blueprint and Action Plan to achieve it.  Be clear and articulate in how you state your future goals, and deliberate in how you implement.

Connect with fellow physicians who are forward-looking and learn how to harness the valuable brain trust of your colleagues during the retreat and back at home.  Career acceleration comes from recruiting "allies" and it's easy once you know how.

"Physician Career Expansion and Leadership Greatness: What You Need to Know to Tap Into Your Full Potential" 

From:  Francine R. Gaillour, MD, MBA, FACPE
Executive and Career Coach for Physicians
Author of "Daring Doctors"
Executive Director, Physician Coaching Institute
*FREE* Audio 

Dear Colleague,

If you've been wondering what personal qualities you must possess to expand, transition, or advance your career--whether within or outside of healthcare--or what strategies successful physicians have implemented to uncover their special talents that you're not privy to, then my free teleconference call on July 31 may be the next step for you.  

During this 60 minute teleconference, I will share with you a high-level outline of the following "need to know" essential insights based on the work I've done with dozens of physicians who have embarked on the journey to discover and express their full repertoire of talents and skills:

--> Why career transition or expansion is difficult for physicians (compared to non-physicians) and what you should know to be emotionally prepared for to make things smoother 

--> What personal qualities (not just business skills) you need when transitioning from clinical to non-clinical domains, and from leading to inspiring  

--> Why to approach transition, expansion, and advancement from a "core-strengths-authenticity" perspective first in order to venture out with a personal fulfillment plan and not just shoot in the dark.

Hear what I've learned from my own experience and that of hundreds of physicians I've consulted with or coached.  

During the call you'll also to learn about the October retreat/workshop I have planned for physicians who are ready to get solidly on the right foot to expand, transition, or advance your career or develop your leadership potential.
