I was fortunate to meet with Tammie at The Stanford WellMD CWO course in 2022 and she has been instrumental in continuing our alumni group's connection facilitating regular peer mentoring sessions.
In this episode we discuss her own story of severe burnout and depression and progress towards a place of thriving and leading change in clinician wellbeing. Our conversation revisits and develops past podcast topics including values and values alignment, identity, setting boundaries, personal and professional wellbeing and fulfillment, clinician coaching and leadership development.
Tammie describes the investment, support and collaborative work that drives her organisational wellbeing leadership role.
Season 4 will have a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship and as recent recipient of several awards for her work in these areas, Tammie shares her learning and experience to date. I am inspired and encouraged, thank you Tammie.
