In this episode, we hear from author, business and personal coach, consultant and motivational speaker, Adrian Bracy about leadership, career pivots and how to take the right next step. 

“It’s knowing myself, first of all. What can I do? What are my limitations? A lot of us, we don’t even think about that. We just assume that we can do it all, and unfortunately, that’s just not right.” -Adrian E. Bracy, MBA, CPA

What if you had a team of trusted thinking partners, experienced coaches who have helped hundreds of physicians overcome obstacles and who know what works? 

What if you were part of a community of like-minded physicians from across the nation, across specialties and career stages? Your collective brain trust, sharing ideas and experiences, so you would no longer feel like an island, surrounded by people yet alone?

What if you had small group coaching sessions, could interact with your coaches and community as often as you wish, and had virtual courses at your fingertips 24-7 that could help you with things like time and stress management, resilience, and mapping out your future to achieve what matters most to you?

What if you could have all of this for less than the cost of a single 1:1 coaching session per month?
