Why Awaken The Leader in You?

I have been a urological surgeon for 35 years, practicing as a clinician in university, public and private hospitals, as well as at private practices across Europe and North America. During the course of my career, I realized that what people needed most was more of my time, even in my chosen surgical specialty. Whether with patients, and especially with colleagues, developing our communication and leadership skills makes us better medical professionals, more attentive to our own needs and those of our patients, allowing us to achieve peak performance even in the most difficult situations.

 

Most of my professional life, I have trained, coached and mentored peers, residents, consultants and other health care professionals, as well as people outside of the medical professions. I created Awaken the Leader in You as an answer to what is lacking most today in the medical sector: to empower medical professionals with the ability to communicate and lead with ease. As an industry insider, I deliver this 3-step mentoring program with the aim to build leadership expertise based on self-management and expert communication skills.Typically, participants are physicians at different levels of their careers, who often feel their professional development is stationary, consequently feeling disconnected from their careers. They are many times experiencing intense time pressure, irregular working hours, and sleep deficit due to unbalanced working conditions.

The Awaken the Leader in You mentoring program equips physicians to deal with the specific and substantial challenges that affect this sector

When you know how to communicate more clearly and assertively, you will experience more engagement with your peers and team. This will reflect immediately in the quality of your results, becoming the leader your were meant to be.

Building and Maintaining Relationships

In 2014, Dr. Künkel and I worked closely together at the Zurich University Hospital. In his position as senior consultant urologist he did not only teach me the basics in medicine, he coached me how to become a professional in my job and keep the balance in my private life. Based on his long-standing unique experience as a leading figure he was able to promote my skills on various levels and give me a clear view on priorities necessary for a successful career. Besides all this, Dr. M. is a very likeable person with a great sense of humor. It is always a pleasure to spend time with him.

Markus has promoted me to become a member of the European Toastmaster Board in 2016. As a leader, he inspired me to step forward. He supported me with knowledge, guidance and valuable feedback. Upon his coaching, I have grown my leadership and conflict management skills and with this personal growth. Markus is a great coach to mirror and reflect on oneself. Over many years he has been proven a visionary leader for Toastmasters in Europe by overseeing and analysing the possibilities for growth in Europe for the next years, planting the seeds for continuous collaboration and networking amongst countries.

I met Dr. Künkel when we both started our new positions as attending physicians at the University Spital Zuerich in 2014. From the beginning I was impressed by his seniority and in-depth knowledge of the health care system, his ability to analyze processes, identify weaknesses (and strengths) in the work place and in the people working there; his focused and interested listening skills, and to generate suggestions and potential solutions in a respectful and thoughtful way…. Dr. Künkel’s major strengths are that he has worked for a long time both in private and academic health care systems, exactly understanding the pressures involved.

Mentorship, guidance and perhaps even refocusing and understanding …is often totally missing in the clinical day-to-day life,….not insignificantly leading to exhaustion, frustration and even cynicism …. in physicians, who started their medical career with enthusiasm and idealism. In his coaching, Dr. Künkel is not jumping to simple and quick solutions, he is very respectful and practical in finding solutions.
