Welcome back to Season 2. I'm delighted to open with an episode that weaves in and expands on many of the themes we discussed in the Season 1. Introducing the rather wonderful Sharee Johnson who is a leading coach of doctors here in Australia. Sharee combines her unique skill set and background in psychology, coaching and mindfulness to help doctors and health care professionals perform optimally maintaining good health and personal wellbeing not only in their clinical environments but in their lives as a whole. Her powerful personal experiences have shaped her vocation and career trajectory as she transitioned from patient advocate to also doctor advocate.
In this episode we discuss the relationships and distinctions between coaching, mentoring and counselling. We delve into the specifics of coaching for doctors asking why, when, where and how. We explore Sharee's coaching work with individuals and groups and the Recalibrate programme. Themes of doctor health and wellbeing and the prevention of burnout are revisited from her coaching perspective. You certainly don't need to be a doctor to find something of value in this conversation.
addendum: At 1.07.18 in this conversation we accidentally refer to coaching when the intention was to reference counselling.
