How I can help…

Individual Healthcare Leadership Coaching

Private coaching consists of 1:1 sessions via phone or zoom meeting once a week, once every other week, or once every three weeks, depending on your needs. Typical contracts extend for 6-12 months. During the intake session, we explore what you want to achieve clarify your goals. Subsequent sessions focus on exploring useful action steps, strategies, and resources. My responsibility is to provide content, insight, tools, wisdom, framework, ideas, and feedback. Your responsibility is to move from awareness to action and accountability.

Healthcare Leadership Consulting/Training

The healthcare culture of the future requires new ways of approaching leadership.  What is needed for the future of healthcare is Compassionate Leadership, where leaders take a human approach and marry people-centered leading with the business objectives. Adding leadership development and using a coaching approach in leading will help your organization create a culture of appreciation, psychological safety, and support for your staff.

Work with Dr. Donley to assess your leadership needs and devise an internal leadership development and coaching program that suits your facility’s needs. Together, we will design a program to develop your leaders, providing group coaching, basic and advanced leadership training, as well as coaching skill training so that your leaders learn to use coaching in their work with employees.

Charting the Course for a Healthy Work Environment

COVID has illuminated and magnified the problems facing healthcare for years: burnout, dissatisfaction, and people leaving the profession. The work environment must change to mitigate these problems. Creating a healthy, psychologically safe work environment requires thought and intention: what it should look like, feel like, and how people are treated. We need a new vision, so people behave differently, and we produce different staff outcomes. And new leader qualities for leaders must be defined using a more Compassionate Leadership Approach.
