Episode 23 - How to turn your frustration into impact with Dr. Rachel Miller

Do you ever wish you could wave a magic wand and get other people to change? 

Dr. Rachel Miller did. 

She initially got into medicine to help people, but wound up feeling frustrated by the lack of leadership training and skill development within the healthcare industry. 

One day, from within her bathroom with the shower running, Rachel had a realization: maybe she could be the change she was looking for. 

Today, Dr. Rachel Miller, a distinguished board-certified Obstetrician & Gynecologist, expertly combines her medical expertise with her passion for leadership development. 

As a Certified Executive Coach and author of “How to Succeed as a Healthcare Leader,” Dr. Miller is dedicated to empowering healthcare leaders to drive meaningful change within their organizations and their private practices. She offers transformative guidance to physician executives and front-line leaders through her company, Pocket Bridges. And, she has an award-nominated podcast, Life, Love, and Leadership for Physicians, where she shares her expertise and interviews experts, including myself. 

In this podcast, Rachel and I explore how you can positively channel your frustration into impact. We explore how you can positively influence and impact the people around you, including this nugget of wisdom: start with yourself.

In our discussion, Rachel comments on the American healthcare system, but there’s wide applicability here for anyone who wants to be a better leader or effect change around them.

We explore:

  • Why “start with yourself” is always good advice when you want to create change – and why understanding *yourself* makes understanding *other people* easier
  • Why personal development will also help you with professional development (and vice versa)
  • The problem with “all or nothing” thinking and other common blindspots, plus how to shift your brain to explore more creative possibilities
  • Why human connection and trust is at the heart of impactful leadership
  • Tips for building stronger connections and trust in a virtual or hybrid work environment
  • How thought leadership can help you channel your frustration into something positive and make a difference. (Hint: If you’re frustrated and want to foster change in your business or industry, this is a great place to start.)

^ This part of the interview is my favourite bit of the show, by the way! If you’re frustrated AF right now, tune in around 39:00 and you’ll get right to the part where we talk about how expressing yourself (through things like writing or podcasting) can help you turn your frustration into something productive and meaningful.
