Hospital Leadership Coaching
Kashbox Coaching provides corporate coaching, personal coaching, strategic planning, and assessment services for individuals and organizations worldwide. Hospitals, like other businesses, can get sick. In 2001, the Southeast Georgia Health System was on the critical list. It was bleeding to death from losses of $13 million per year. This is where Kashbox’s hospital leadership coaching came in to the story.
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 as the organization’s coach. Colberg didn’t just want to shore up the low performers; his goal was to strengthen managers at all levels. So 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. More recently, many business professionals have made an equally exciting discovery: personal support for managers promotes the health of organizations. And the most effective method of providing individual support to organizational managers is through hospital leadership coaching.
