CPL Coaching Services

CPL coaching services positions leaders for success by helping them build their self-awareness through actionable feedback and identify opportunities for improvement with guided support. As a result, leaders and their teams build the cohesion, trust, and communication they need to deliver measurable and sustainable results.

CPL helps your leaders be successful by supporting them with tools and techniques designed to build their leadership competency.

Organizations are critically dependent on the well-being of their physician staff in dealing with multiple complex problems that our health care system is facing. We have improved physician satisfaction scores, reduced burnout, improved physician retention, and patient satisfaction scores have increased as a result of this change.

        Our physician coaching methodology builds resilience, optimism, collaboration, and support.

Coaching for Resilience

Today's rapidly changing environment in healthcare demands that teams perform at their highest level. That is why CPL has developed programs for facing unprecedentedly challenging times, like the COVID pandemic.

CPL has a proven track record of helping teams and individuals develop the skills they need to build resilience.

Individual Coaching

Physicians are accustomed to learning rapidly and being successful, and they are often frustrated when they perceive that they are not being effective in their leadership roles. Learning new skills as an adult can be difficult and frustrating, as they are seldom mastered with the first attempt at their implementation.

CPL has the time tested tools and techniques for fortifying new leadership skills.

What Our Clients Say

Dr. Rob A. Patrawala 

Vice President, Medical Specialties and Medical Director, Cardiovascular Service Line at Palo Alto Foundation Medical Group 

I recently had the opportunity to spend 4 full days learning from Ashley and Fred in a physician leadership course through Palo Alto Medical Foundation. They are truly gifted in teaching leadership to physicians. They have a wonderfully interactive and engaging style that helps the learning process. They stress and help convey an understanding of the difference between leading and managing and the importance of emotional intelligence in being a leader. They helped us move from debating each other to having dialogue and managing change in a group. This course ranks up there as one of the single most life-altering 4-day courses I have ever taken and have already seen the benefits in my administrative activities.

Dr. Charles K. Everett 

Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Director of Critical Care Services

I had the opportunity to learn from Ashley and Fred in their Introduction to Physician Leadership program at Sutter University. I learned a tremendous amount about communication, various attributes of leadership, and my own strengths and weaknesses as a leader. Ashley and Fred work brilliantly together, know the material inside and out, and artfully draw upon the skills and experiences of those in the room to create and dynamic, thought-provoking, and productive learning environment. Highly recommended!

Dr. Kelly S. Derbin 

Family Medicine, Palo Alto Medical Foundation

Ashley and Fred are a fantastic team. I just completed their 4 session Introduction to Physician Leadership program. They create an interactive, energetic and thoughtful learning environment. We covered important principles about communication style, Emotional Intelligence, team building, difficult conversations, moving debate to dialogue, and tying the principles together to move forward with one's own goal plan. I look forward to working with them to bring this training to more of our leaders at PAFMG.
