Coaching for Physicians & Healthcare Leaders

I work with healthcare professionals to increase well-being and personal satisfaction, particularly in the face of challenging and stressful circumstances.

Why Coaching?

As a physician myself, I know the challenges you face everyday.

After more than 30 years practicing medicine (10 in emergency medicine, 20 in private practice), I’m familiar with the fatigue and challenges you face in your career – and know the impact happy, healthy physicians have on patient outcomes.

As an executive and leadership coach who specializes in supporting physicians and others in healthcare organizations, I have done executive coaching across a wide array of industries, and have most enjoyed helping my colleagues in the medical industry thrive.

For nearly 15 years I’ve enjoyed serving healthcare leaders as an ICF Professional Certified Coach, PCI certified Physician Development Coach and London Business School Executive Coach.

Whether you’re dealing with compassion fatigue, struggling with a bad patient outcome, feeling leadership or organizational growth pains or simply want to get back to loving your work again, I’d love to talk to you. 

The Very Best of the Best!

Dr. Byler (Keith) is truly the very best of the best in his field. He has a warm and easygoing style but his wisdom is prodigious. His help for me when I was at a professional low point was truly invaluable and more than useful in that he was able to build me back up starting with introspection and reshaping my self esteem. I highly recommend him to any physician or professional who has need of counseling. I can’t thank him enough for all he has done for me. You are top shelf Dr. Byler, in every way! Thank you Sir!

I have been meeting with

I have been meeting with Keith for several months now. He has been not only a physician peer coach related to my current medical practice, but also has become a trusted friend who I can discuss very difficult home situations regarding the terminal illness of my spouse, children and young adults dealing with terminal illness, my own personal feelings and concerns, and so forth. It truly takes a village when one faces such difficult tasks and Keith provides a significant foundation to my village. I cannot thank him enough for his concern, empathy, and guidance.

An outstanding mentor and counselor

Dr. Byler (Keith) is an outstanding mentor and counselor! His knowledge base coupled with his easygoing style make him the perfect “coach” for physicians and professionals. His help for me was invaluable and spot on. He has the skills of a “jedi master” and his warmth shines through. No hyperbole…Dr. Byler is truly at the very top of his craft and field.

World Class Coaching

I never imagined I would be facing the threat of losing my career over a bad patient outcome where an honest assessment showed that I did nothing wrong. However, this is the exact situation that I faced many years into my practice of medicine. Keith has been a godsend in tackling this challenge. His listening skills, focus, and attention to detail are exceptional. I have personal family members and friends who are physicians who know me intimately, and even with their emotional connection with me, they are not able to retain and focus on the details as well as Keith. Keith also demonstrates remarkable competence in developing strategies to face very complex challenges that are unique to a physician. The empathy and patience that Keith has expressed throughout this process has been life-giving and sustaining in a very special way. I cannot overstate this: I believe Keith Byler has been uniquely gifted to be a world-class physician coach. I give him my highest recommendation. I have the utmost confidence that his future clients will universally agree; Keith represents the gold-standard for a physician coach.

From the first time I visited with Keith he began helping me process and understand the wide array of feelings I was experiencing… He assisted me working through all the difficult stages of losing my confidence and needing to regain it to continue practicing medicine. I highly recommend Keith to anyone who needs assistance going through the challenges of life and practicing medicine.

Keith has a great appreciation for the paradoxes found in so many situations. He has a talent for balancing on that fine edge that exists between the two sides in the world of paradox where innovation and creativity thrive. Any organization with which Keith is involved benefits from his talent for sparking original thought and generating positive energy.
