For Dr. Nicole Boutilier, a busy physician and health-care leader, the journey to becoming an executive coach grew out of an innate desire to help others build out the depth of their leadership.
“I really was interested in building the capacity of leaders around me – to get them to be their own problem solvers and to trust their own instincts,” she says. “I just felt like it wasn't something that I necessarily knew how to do intuitively.”
Nicole, Vice President Medicine for Nova Scotia Health, has worked in various leadership roles over 25 years as an emergency room and family physician. More recently, she has become a certified executive coach.
And now, in addition to her high-pace career in health care, she is a member of the coaching roster at Vision Coaching, eager to help leaders inside and outside the medical profession reach new heights.
