Why Leaders, Managers and CEO’s Need Coaching
No one needs to tell you that the world is rapidly changing. Keeping up with all the pressures of a small or large business while maintaining life balance is at the top of the list of challenges for most Executives and business owners. Creating the space to keep up with your multiple roles, expectations from stakeholders, direct reports, and business trends all the while maintaining bottom line success is challenging in the best of times.
The Harvard Business Review reports that 2 out of 5 CEO’s fail in their first 18 months. Top executives who feel that they can handle it all by themselves are more likely to burn out, make poor decisions or make no decisions – potentially resulting in significant loss of opportunities, human resources and financial resources.
Individual & Group Coaching
Coaching is a way to maximize your personal development, set goals that are deeply integrated with your values, handle obstacles creatively and reach the goals that are important to you. An exploration of what brings deeper meaning to your life and how to achieve balance in all areas of your life while living in a busy world. The coaching agenda often includes: creating a vision, incorporation of values clarification, identification of strengths, career, relationship and personal development in designing the life you were meant to live.
Veronika and Debbie provide deep and meaningful psycho spiritual exploration to maximize your growth and transformation.

The Leader in helping California Multi-Specialty Physician Leaders Regain their Sanity
Dr. Veronika also works with University Medical Hospital Physicians to help them better navigate the systems they work in and create a program for positivity, health and well-being. These Physicians report having a more balance life with a feeling for long term sustainability, health and well-being.
California Physicians who own multi-specialty clinics work with me when they feel lost and out of control with the challenges of owning a business, managing staff, handling business and personal finances, while balancing family life and their own health and well-being.
These challenges can cause constant stress for Physicians. Specifically:
It’s hard to be a physician, manage staff and other providers, and balance all of that with family demands.
When physicians don’t have the support to manage their practices properly, income is sub-optimal, staff turnover can be too high, and everyone experiences the feeling of constant chaos.
Many physicians share with me the high emotional and physical toll of stress caused by drama at home and work.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. When physicians work with me, they regain control and oversight of their practices, and their business runs smoothly again.
For instance, you institute the right provider to patient ratios to achieve increased profits and revenues.
You create a culture shift that reduces staff turnover while creating more stability and harmony.
You also develop a strategy to balance work and life, stop feeling overwhelmed, and regain energy, fulfillment health and well-being.
Unlike other physician advisors, I have a proven track record. I’ve helped multi-specialty clinic physician/business owners turn their businesses around with 30 - 50% revenue increases. My clients have a firm grasp of their role as business owners, and understand how to lead their practices effectively. They also hire managers, staff and other providers specific to the needs of their clinic and specialization, and retain them. Most importantly, they tell me they don’t experience the levels of stress they did before we started working together. They also report that they have made the changes to sustain their own health and well-being.
Wellness & Well-Being Coaching
Most people want to feel good on a daily basis. We want to have balance and peace in our lives at home and at work. Have you ever met anyone that would say this is not important to them? Science is showing that when we maintain a balance; mind, body and spirit, we are more productive and effective in all areas of our life. If you are a leader or employer you will want your team to take time off, have a fitness program and a healthy diet so they are more effective when they are working with you.
Many people want to be physically fit and in shape, however, less than half of the population knows how to create sustainable change. How many diets or workout routines have you started in your life and still you put the weight back on. Yes, we all know this struggle.
Long hours and never getting away from email and phone calls can take a toll on us. The long-term effect of stress can be devastating on our bodies, our mental, emotional and spiritual selves as well. Being out of balance is so much part of our culture that we think it is normal and that is why having someone who supports a perspective of health and wellness is essential for change. While there are some people who are capable of doing this on their own, most people require another person to motivate and monitor their progress for sustainable change. This is where wellness coaching comes in.
What Is Wellness Coaching?
Wellness coaching is working with a professional coach to help you evaluate your overall life balance in all areas; mind, body and spirit. We find tools to lower the stress you experience in your life, motivate you towards sustainable change in the areas you would like to change and monitor your progress. We help you incorporate your goals into your daily routines.
We understand the importance of a well-rounded life and incorporate the 4 intelligences into all of our coaching. Many people in leadership roles seek out wellness coaching to help them better deal with the stress of their position and to prevent burnout. We consider the 4 intelligences, or areas to target for balance as physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual intelligence. When you have initiated an exploration and balance of all four you create more peace, contentment and lower sense of stress in your life. Often our clients report feeling like they are living the life they have always envisioned.
