Healthcare Coaching

“Feedback should have bite, create insight, deliver a new perspective and cause a step change”

Healthcare coaching is perhaps the most exciting frontier in the dynamic new field of coaching.

Kashbox Coaching provides healthcare coaching for organizations nationwide. Hospitals, like other businesses, can get sick. The Southeast Georgia Health System was on the critical list in the year 2001. It was bleeding to death from losses of $13 million a year. Kashbox’s hospital leadership coaching came to the rescue.

In order to help sustain and expand this dramatic turnaround, Gary Colberg, the health system’s new CEO, brought David Herdlinger on board in the summer of 2004 to provide healthcare coaching. Colberg didn’t just want to shore up the low performers; he wanted to strengthen managers at all levels. He asked Herdlinger to coach his entire leadership team – all of the vice presidents, directors, and managers – totaling approximately 85 individuals.

Medical professionals long ago recognized that providing personal, supportive care to patients accelerates the healing process.
