New Survey

Share Your Story About the Best Boss You’ve Ever Had

We’re interested in learning more about what makes great leaders GREAT. Would you please take our short, three-question survey?

Certified Coach Diane Scott Knows Healthcare.

As an experienced healthcare administrator and physician practice leader, Diane brings over three decades of healthcare experience to her coaching.


Focusing on outcomes for their organizations, teams, and themselves, clients often come to Diane because of her Healthcare Experience, but return because of the impact her coaching delivers. Her portfolio includes multiple CEO’s, COO’s, CNO’s, CFO’s, SVP’s, and CIO’s. Her 360 Check-In for C-Suite leaders has proven to be one of the most powerful offerings to newly hired leaders.   


Excellent physician leadership translates into growth for organizations. Conversely, disruptive physicians can undermine the potential. Diane Scott has worked with the very best physicians in the world to increase their capacity as leaders, improve ratings, and improve engagement.


While every healthcare organization knows the impact of great nursing leadership, the single most powerful means to increase the capacity of nursing leadership is coaching. Coaching focuses on the specific need of the client, not a wide-spread expensive training that often misses the mark.

This process was incredibly valuable for me as a new executive to the system. I was able to course-correct some early mistakes, and better position myself with key stakeholders for future success. 

—CEO, Multi-Hospital System
