Doctor burnout improves with life coach: study
It’s not only financial CEO types who may benefit from professional coaching. For the first time, researchers have looked at whether doctors could use a little life coaching to address burnout.
Just six sessions with a professional coach yielded promising results for a group of US doctors, who reported less overall burnout and a higher quality of life, Mayo Clinic researchers report.
Among those who had coaching, emotional exhaustion scores reduced by a mean of 5.2 points and increased by 1.5 among those who had not been coached.
