He immediately completed certification in Executive Coaching and Interactive Guided Imagery. He has been an active one-on-one coach to entrepreneurs and physicians for over 20 years.
He became the COO of Superteams, LLC providing Leadership and Facilitation training to Lean Six Sigma Black Belts in all branches of the US Military.
In 2011, he launched TheHappyMD.com website as a hub for his coaching practice. Blog posts on patterns observed in burnout causes and prevention tools became his book, “Stop Physician Burnout”. He used the book as a springboard to build a library of live and video-on-demand trainings on burnout prevention. Since 2017, he has delivered the Quadruple Aim Physician Leadership Retreat twice a year, providing all the tools and support for graduates to be an effective Wellness Champion for their people.
