"I appreciate Jeff’s openness and willingness to share examples from his own experience.  He provides wonderful insights throughout his discussions with his guests in an enjoyable and entertaining way.  His series allows me to explore areas of interest to me, in a manner that I can balance with clinical work and at my own pace.  This series opened the door to exploring important issues about practicing medicine with a healthy work-life balance, and introduced me to many like-minded people who are similarly inclined toward self-exploration. It was well worth the time and investment.
Whether dabbling in introspection or a lifelong devotee of coaching, there is something for everyone in this series."
