Burnout is at epidemic proportions in the medical field.

It includes a spectrum of experiences: from feeling uninspired by work, overwhelmed, overly stressed, a lack of joy, inability to sleep, etc. As a physician, you had to be resilient to get through medical school and residency… but the kind of resilience you were taught, actually leads to burnout.

Testimonials

“I had been working in Covid-19 Incident Command, as the Safety Officer, for over two months when I was offered a meeting with Bonnie. I wasn’t sure what to expect and the question I asked myself was, ‘Why would I need a resiliency coach?’ I felt ok, I was able to complete my duties assigned in Incident Command, and my family was fine, ‘I don’t need a resiliency coach.’ After I met with Bonnie, I felt a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders which I had no idea I had been carrying around for two months. Bonnie taught me skills, provided me with tools, and enabled me to improve my mental and physical well-being. I started sleeping through the night for the first time in two months. I was excited to go to work every day and I was more productive. I highly recommend her to all of my colleagues!”

“I don’t have to tell you that I am seeing rapid and unprecedented levels of burnout and sometimes frankly this despair among my colleague physicians. I have been incredibly impressed by the coaching and training I’ve undergone with Dr. David Paul. I entered with some trepidation and skepticism. Frankly I’ve had coaching and training before and always felt it was a little bit too mechanical and wasn’t getting to the root of things. And with an issue like burnout and issues of emotional intelligence you really can’t skim the surface of things and expect dramatic changes. What pleasantly surprised me, is we really did dive deep, both in one-on-one coaching with Dr. David Paul, but also when working with my physician leader group… with skills that aren’t taught in medical training. I have seen a rejuvenation of spirit among my physician leadership and my physicians in general. I thoroughly recommend this approach and think it’s one of the unique opportunities available in American medicine.”
