Welcome to Lodestar Consulting & Executive Coaching

What We Do

Physicians, health professionals, attorneys, and leaders in every sector have endured years of unrelenting toxic stress and uncertainty that has overloaded even the most well-resourced professionals and organizations.  The result?  Exhaustion, burnout, disengagement, compassion fatigue, and a sense of betrayal that increasingly strains once robust and reliable systems.

Industries We Serve

Physicians & Providers

Lodestar faculty coaches are the professionals we coach and train.  Like you, we love our profession.  Like you, we understand the stress, trauma, and moral injury that can result from the work we do.  Like you, we are physicians, nurses, medical educators and healthcare professionals who have experienced the pain and strain.

Coaching is not therapy, and great coaching can be incredibly therapeutic.

Lodestar's executive coaches have the advanced training, professional experience, and certification needed to engage with and support clients in and through the complexity of these times. 

Legal Professionals

The legal profession is both honorable and meaningful, representing so much more than billable hours and the secondary trauma that often feels like the inevitable result of the work. 

 

Lodestar faculty coaches are highly skilled at deliberately cultivating safe, personalized spaces, allowing clients to rediscover the passion that first attracted them to the legal profession.

 

Attorneys play a vital role in society, and Lodestar's executive coaches have the advanced training needed to partner with clients through and beyond the complexity of these times.

Government & Corporate

Those tasked with  leadership in America have faced years of unprecedented toxic stress and trauma, enduring intense scrutiny and tremendous challenges,  while navigating uncertainty, profound organizational stress, and significantly increased workloads.

 

The result? Depleted mental and emotional reserves and frayed internal resources.

 

Lodestar's highly tailored and successful process guides leaders in the development of advanced understanding, awareness, and skills to effectively navigate and lead their teams through challenging times.

Our Mission

Connection Mitigates Trauma

Lodestar takes a direct, highly engaged, and multiphase approach to coaching, leadership development and employee training. Our commitment to each client is absolute, and we partner with a very limited number of organizational clients at any given time.  

 

Lodestar faculty and staff are deeply committed to this work:  We are the professionals we are trying to develop, committed to growing with you, and committed to this transformational process and the healing it engenders.

Lodestar stands out for its deep commitment to human-centered, high-quality, and high-integrity teaching, facilitation, and acute incident response. Our approach engages deeply with the client, drawing on our extensive, collective experience and library of programs to develop a path, train employees, and provide support and structure in an overlapping, organic, phased approach.

Lodestar's faculty are physicians, attorneys, psychologists, and educators with decades of experience in team restoration, leadership consulting, and coaching. 

 

We are committed to moving our clients beyond the toxic stress, exhaustion, and moral injury of these times.  We are professionals working in these environments - and we understand.

 

The path forward requires actionable skills and a different paradigm, beginning with this fundamental truth:

What Our Clients Say About Us

Before Lodestar:

.... another government training.  What box are we checking this time?  I appreciate that someone is spending money on us, which would be stupid.  But I don't have time to spend away, and the work will pile up while I am gone. 

I was "voluntold" to take this 3-day workshop with my team.  Three days with people I don't trust. At least I get a free work trip.

We don't interact at work.  Why bother?   Screen off.  Head down.  Retire In Place. 

Our leadership is the problem.  It's like they are so removed from actual work that they don't even care about the impact on our workload and mental health.  Insane. 

After Lodestar Engagement:

100% worth it. Worth the time and  effort.  I've never been in something like this.  It was intense, and I didn't want it to end.  I never had the words for everything I was going through.  It was a shock to learn I was not alone.  This was unexpected and powerful.  

The 3 days in Washington, DC, really bonded us.   Our whole team felt it. We haven't communicated this well in years, and the effect hasn't worn off yet.  

I haven't felt this good in a long time.  It's like some part of me just cracked open again. 

... and our Leadership has been deeply harmed, too.  These past years were terrible, and now I get it - we've all been paying the price.  They cared enough to get us this help, and I'm grateful for that.
