Litigation Stress Management Coaching for Physician

Is Thrive: Insight Coaching Worth My Investment?

The real question here is: Are YOU worth your investment?

An unexpected adverse outcome and/or malpractice litigation provoke more stress for physicians than virtually any other aspect of our work. It’s not just me — endless physicians tell me so. Given that the experience robs you of joy, time, and energy, the last thing you may want is to invest additional time and money.

In hindsight, however, things look very different. Malpractice litigation and adverse outcomes are hard on physicians’ health, marriages, and other relationships. They drive some away from a career they’ve worked hard for, others toward addiction, and a small number toward suicide.

Securing what you need to come through malpractice litigation with heart and mind intact restores some control. Investing in coaching is an investment in your health, home-life, and professional longevity. On every front, including financially, the return on investment is immense.

Do you harbor doubts? Consider your car. We often spend $20-30K or more on a car hoping for years of service from it.

Realistically, though, that service won’t materialize without maintenance and repairs. Did you know that auto maintenance averages $600-$1200/year, or 2-4% of the car’s purchase price every single year?

Fabulous Vintage Cars - Maintenance at its Finest

Most of us invested over $200K plus eleven years’ minimum of our lives in college, med school, and post-graduate training, hoping for decades in a satisfying career.

Circumstances now invite you to invest in the maintenance YOU need to remain effective in your specialty. Coaching WON’T cost you 2-4% of your university tuition annually, but the ROI can fuel you for the next ten years! Invest in your patients. Invest in your future. Invest in yourself!
