Business and Life Coaching Testimonial:
"I wanted to generate change in my job as a physician, specializing in Child Psychiatry. I wanted to reduce the hours I spent performing weekend on-call at a hospital, during which my wife and I would stay at a hotel close to the hospital to make it easier on me during this time. Although the hotel stays reduced my commute, they still took me away from the comfort of my home in the evenings on those designated weekends. I also wanted to reduce overall the time devoted to physician responsibilities and yet increase my compensation. In addition I wanted to retain a high quality in my work environment, work product, job satisfaction, professionalism and in my patient’s satisfaction and also accomplish the change in my work hours and compensation happily and easily.
Over this last year I have had at least 4 distinct positive changes in how I perform my job, where I perform it, and each time I reduced the overall time commitment, and each time I have realized an increase in compensation. The first change included eliminating the obligation to perform weekend on-call at a hospital. Then I reduced my work schedule to 2 half Fridays a month. And the changes kept continuing.
I now work four days a week, enjoy 3-day weekends every week, and have reduced my commute time to clinics more than 75%. Looking back over the year I am amazed how smoothly all this transpired and how Mary DeLaat, CPA and QSCA Certified Business and Life Coach coached me through this process and other positive changes to increase satisfaction and leisure time in my life as well as reduce stress. And I am not through creating more positive change in my career and life. I am looking forward to how much further positive change I will have accomplished by this time next year."
