PHYSICIAN EMPOWERMENT STARTS HERE
COACHING WITH STEVE PARKES, MD
With the evermore burdensome landscape of healthcare, physicians have become distanced from the autonomy and purpose of our original calling. Thought-partnering with a worthy professional coach and mentor can deliver the personalized transformation you may have never considered possible. If you are a physician who has both the hunger and humility to embark on a journey of self-discovery and fulfillment, you're in the right place.

PHYSICIAN, PROFESSIONAL COACH, ATHLETE,
LIFE-LONG LEARNER, PASSIONATE HUMAN
Having earned multiple degrees from elite institutions, I've experienced first hand how knowledge will only carry us so far in life, both professionally and especially personally. Amongst all the learnings I've amassed over the years, none compares to the insights and growth I've personally experienced through being coached myself.
As doctors, we influence others more than we realize. Yet we rarely master the ability to fully control and direct our own mind and behavior. If you're reading this, I suspect you too have reached a threshold in your life. You know something needs to change, but aren't quite sure what to do. Now is the time to step into a greater potential, and CCI is all about partnering with you to design and implement your next chapter.
Coaching is not psychotherapy. There is nothing wrong with you and you are certainly not broken.
Coaching IS a sophisticated, effective process for high functioning, thoughtful and hungry individuals looking to make themselves even better. It's no wonder Fortune 100 companies have utilized professional coaching for their CEOs and high level executives for decades. The return on investment is profound. As important as we physicians are to the health of our patients and organizations, we are also worthy of the investment of coaching.
PHYSICIAN LEADERSHIP COACHING
Physician leaders are often chosen based upon outstanding clinical skills. What makes us outstanding physicians however often correlates very little with what makes us outstanding leaders. You don't need an MBA to succeed as much as you need the right mentors and coaches. CCI is the perfect resource to enter the often-unexplored universe of effective leadership.
CAREER BURNOUT COACHING
55% of US Physicians experience at least one symptom of burnout. In 2012 I was suffering from every symptom on the list. Neurochemistry, the HPA-axis, and modifiable brain circuitry play a key role in chronic stress and burnout. Now as a 15 time Ironman Triathlon finisher, I know a few things about mastering physical and mental energy.

LIFETIME GUNNER COACHING
Those at the top of their game know best: the growing and learning never stops. When we become more ourselves, we have more to give, which juices our hunger to expand even more. Whether you're propelling your life from good to great or from outstanding to magnificent, coaching is likely a critical keystone of your project to master yourself and further expand your impact.
Whether you're entering a new chapter, feel stuck, are a seasoned veteran or a new resident or medical student, I empower professionals to blaze on to the next level! Contact me to find out more.
