Inspire, Innovate, Influence

As a healthcare professional, you understand the importance of compassion in your field. However, the constant bombardment of competing priorities including financial pressures and regulatory changes, can prevent you from effectively caring for others if you neglect to take care of yourself. It is crucial to acknowledge that by replenishing your own well-being and addressing the challenges you face, you can enhance your ability to provide authentic care and leadership to those around you.

Through personalized coaching, you can develop the necessary strategies and skills to navigate the demands of your role while maintaining your own well-being, ultimately enabling you to fulfill your professional responsibilities with greater effectiveness and satisfaction.

My aim is to make a positive contribution in healthcare by utilizing three degrees of influence to reach healthcare leaders, like you, and help you gain back your inspiration, and to identify and achieve the goals you want to attain in this industry. It is possible!

Let’s work together to transform healthcare through three degrees of influence.

What is

3 Degrees?

In the dynamic landscape of the healthcare industry, visionary leaders thrive on their commitment to serve and transform care to meet their communities’ needs but are losing momentum from the overwhelming amount of information and challenges they deal with every day. They are becoming sick and aren’t fully able to serve others. If those in the healthcare field can’t ‘fill their own buckets’ with compassion and self-care, how can they properly take care of others?

3 Degrees Healthcare Consulting is an agency that enables healthcare administrators and others an opportunity to take some time to build the clarity and purpose they need to succeed – while minimizing the overwhelm.

The name “3 Degrees” draws its inspiration from the concept of separation. The popularity of social media as a communication and influencing platform has compounded this separation to a mere three degrees of influence.

I believe we currently possess a concise span of three degrees to connect us with the individuals essential to our objectives and growth. We hold the potential to collaboratively steer constructive transformations within the realm of healthcare.
