Emerging leaders physician coaching

Transition from physician to physician leader can be challenging since a new leadership skill set is not embedded in training. While the skills of strategy, operations, and finance are foundational, effective leadership involves key leadership attributes that can be optimally obtained by an experienced healthcare coach.

Diane’s approach to Emerging Physician Leaders includes:

Self Awareness

Emotional Intelligence


Conflict Engagement

Strategic Thinking

Leading by Influence

Physician Leadership Coaching

Physician leaders are the single most important factor in driving the growth of an organization. When physician leadership is optimized, it can drive physician satisfaction, quality outcomes, and financial success for organizations and systems.

Diane Scott’s exceptional medical and clinical background potentiates coaching for physicians and helps bridge the gap between leadership and clinical practice. Her background as faculty at Loyola University teaching graduate school healthcare finance gives her a unique perspective to physician leadership coaching. She knows that physicians bring a rare perspective to leadership that, when harnessed, optimizes operations in organizations and teams that drive outcomes and engagement.

Disruptive Physician coaching

“He is a great physician, but his behavior seriously gets in the way of her success.” Senior Vice-President, Medical Affairs

While disruptive physician behavior has been existed for as long as the profession has existed, the impact today of bad behavior is significantly greater. With the advent of quality indicators, public star ratings, and the culture of bullying, a physician with disruptive behavior will not succeed.

Diane Scott’s has a proven tract record of working with physicians identified with behaviors that no longer serve them. Armed with respect and knowledge about the work they do, she uncovers the etiology of the underlying behaviors and give a pathway for success impacting themselves, their co-workers, and the patients they care for.
