Leadership & Executive Coaching for medical and public health leaders
Are you a senior doctor in a leadership role or a public health leader and seeking to:
feel more confident and at ease with a complex, dynamic medical or public health leadership role
accelerate your leadership performance and competence
successfully secure or transition to a new leadership or senior management role including at Board, system/ ICS, national or international level as a doctor in leadership or public health leader
improve your professional satisfaction, impact and relationships at work
increase your presence, gravitas, creativity and emotional intelligence, gaining perspective and insight, or
needing to refocus or restructure your medical or public health leadership role?
My bespoke Leadership Coaching Programmes for senior doctors in leadership roles and public health leaders will enable you to develop your skills and capacity. You’ll be able to take on greater levels of responsibility and complexity, prioritise, feel confident, reach your potential in increasingly ambiguous and complex strategic and system wide roles – and to take care of yourself and your team at the same time.
I will provide you with a safe and confidential partnership, supporting you to develop exceptional leadership and management qualities – so that you can transform health services and improve outcomes for whole populations. I’m known for my world-class support during and between sessions. Where appropriate, I will draw on my own Board level medical and public health leadership career, and my expertise in system leadership and managing people, in order to scaffold your skills development through mentoring as well as coaching in our partnership.
Together, we will ensure that you:
Understand your unique leadership development needs as a doctor or public health leader in order to set clear initial objectives for our coaching partnership
Gain insight into your leadership strengths and any areas for development, using validated leadership 360′ and/ or self-assessment feedback processes
Progress your horizontal leadership development through growing specific key skills and behaviours
Gain the ability to lead in complexity – through partnership working, managing emotions, compassion and communication, from your values and your presence – through progressing your vertical leadership development as a doctor or public health leader
Improve your work-life balance and wellbeing
Feel confident to move forwards into the future
Leadership Coaching can also include any elements of Career Coaching as part of a mixed leadership and career coaching programme: all my coaching programmes are bespoke to your specific needs, with clear needs assessment and goal setting at the start of our relationship together.
I am flexible around your unique needs. Choose from an initial Leadership Coaching programme (typically comprises 6 x 90 minute sessions (18 hours of CPD) as detailed below) or a more flexible longer term relationship together.
Most of my senior medical and public health leader clients want to work with me over a longer term period. This enables you to have the benefits of both a bespoke medical leadership and public health leadership development programme to support and stretch you AND to have on-tap support from me for your new and emerging challenges.
A longer term relationship allows you as a senior medical and public health client to work with me over a several year period as you navigate through highly complex and demanding leadership and career challenges with my full and flexible support.

My 1:1 bespoke leadership coaching programmes for General Practitioners (GPs), coaching for medical directors, leadership coaching for NHS consultants and healthcare clinical leaders, and coaching for DsPH are tailored to your specific learning needs. Coaching for doctors of medicine and public health leaders will have a sustained impact on your own leadership development as a physician, surgeon, public health leader, general practitioner leader, as well as impacting outcomes for patients, your colleagues, and wider populations and systems. I can also offer staff development and group coaching courses – these are organised via employers for a cohort of staff or a whole senior leadership team.
Coaching is the most effective form of medical leadership development and public health leadership development training available
While there are a number of leadership development training courses for doctors within medical CPD and public health leaders available, none of them address the personal self awareness needed to really flourish in your professional life as a senior public health or medical leader or medical manager at the depth or sustainability of 1:1 coaching. This depth of awareness and self regulation is at the heart of values based leadership for doctors and public health leaders, and underpins effective communication skill training, and leadership behaviours in the workplace.
While I do also offer medical leadership courses and leadership skills training for physicians, surgeons, general practitioner and public health leaders for groups of staff, it is only through a high trust, high support 1:1 coaching partnership that I can really help you to develop the essential internal public health and medical leadership skills you will need to succeed in your medical leadership career or your public health career.
Adults learn best through experiential learning over time and all of my coaching and mentoring programmes for medic leadership development and public health leadership development are skill based, unique and bespoke to you and your personal and professional needs. All my coaching programmes are based on evidence based cognitive behavioural based training interventions and use adult development theory and leadership theory to enable you to develop a high level of skill in medical management and medical leadership for doctors of medicine, and your clinical healthcare and public health leadership skills now and into the future.
I also integrate mentoring approaches in my leadership development coaching programmes for doctors and public health leaders to teach new skills for your continuing professional development, advancing your level of skill within your medical speciality, surgical, general practitioner or public health specialty as a clinical leader of the future.
