Comments from clients

“People say change is hard. It is, but it is much more achievable with Dave Dull as your coach and mentor to guide you through the process.

Dave was able to help navigate my transitions in complex, demanding organizations. He was able to identify my strengths, reduce my blind-spots and ultimately become a more self-aware leader. He accomplished this by asking the right questions to allow self-reflection which led to positive change.

Dave’s partnership creates a balance between coaching, mentoring, informing. His expertise has helped me, and my teams, create the right relationships with key stakeholders, and helped with professional development as a team and how we work and communicate together. He continues to help me personally grow my leadership capability, credibility, and results.”

K.P. Director of System Safety and Reliability, Regional Integrated Health System

"In my role as Director of Medical Education and later as a Vice President of Medical Affairs, I had the privilege to work with Dr. David Dull.

 

In each role he was able to help me identify hurdles, that often I did not even recognize, and implement action plans to overcome each barrier. David coached me in how to lead and influence physicians as well as executives in a large health-care system. From day one, I always found him quick to listen, and incredibly encouraging. His comments were always thoughtful, insightful, and constructive.

 

David has two decades of experience working in complex medical and executive environments. Due to his experiences in these arenas, he has developed a strategic way of looking at problems, and he is able to “coach-up” those who are interested in learning tactics of how to manage challenging situations."

"During my tenure as President of the Medical Staff, I encountered several instances where a disruptive physician required intervention to mitigate their behavior. It was of enormous benefit to have Dr. Dull assist with these interventions.

 

He applies the principles of Courageous Conversations (among others) that helped turn difficult and conflicted events into very successful outcomes for all involved. In each case, the physician was recovered and remains a contributing member of the staff to this day. I recommend his insight, wisdom and courage to anyone facing similar circumstances with a colleague."

DM, Medical Staff President Large Tertiary Medical Center

"All organizations struggle with disruptive physicians and larger hospitals with high level trauma centers potentially more so due to stress and burn-out. 

 

David has built an approach to dealing with physicians that addressed root causes of behavior and helped us craft an actionable plan resulting in more productive engagement. Physicians previously labeled disruptive were able to remain on the medical staff and become valued members. Other areas David addressed included medical staff department structure, function and governance.

 

He facilitated implementation of a model resiliency program, and introduction of a novel method for addressing equity and sustainability in call pay. David delivers innovative, implementable and actionable solutions to the ever-changing challenges of today’s medical staff."

MS Hospital Group President

“I appreciated and enjoyed working with David through a period of discernment when my previous position was eliminated because of COVID.

 

David’s first-hand knowledge of medicine and health care organizations, and his respectful appreciation for the rewards and challenges of health care leadership, allowed him to quickly understand my situation and guide me toward what mattered. His genuine concern for me as an individual, combined with a remarkable ability to listen and ask questions in a way that allowed for self-reflection and discovery, were invaluable to me. People have certain gifts – David is the real deal.

 

I highly recommend David to any physician or other health care leader seeking to gain greater insight and new perspectives, enhance leadership skills, and advance in their profession. He is an extraordinary resource."
