Since I completed my internship at Duke Medical Center in 1994 and participated in the grass roots efforts to promote integrative medicine, I began linking Dr. Oz’ holistic work to leadership training. On August 31st, Dr. Oz, who was popularized by Oprah, appeared on Good Morning America speaking about his unique approach to healing his patients. Watch the video here
Dr. Oz is a well established cardiologist who currently directs the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at New York Presbyterian Hospital. Dr. Oz is on the cutting edge of integrative medicine, using a holistic approach that honors the entire picture of the person by looking at all the systems of the body during heart surgery, because the health of the heart is affected by these other systems.
When our graduates report that they learned in their workshop how to manage their chronic headaches and stress or eliminate asthma and stuttering (Graduate Testimonials), they are actually reporting on how they learned to harness and redirect their energy in a way that is linked to Dr. Oz’ recognition that energy is important to wholeness and complete wellness. In our integrative leadership development approach, we also look at all of the areas and roles impacting one’s life, because work affects home and home affects work. If, for example, you are focused on your child’s current struggle and find a new role you can play to help resolve that, you will perform better at work because your focus will be there, not at home.
Like Dr. Oz, our medical model approach to leadership development holds that for every diagnosis (specific leadership challenge), there is a treatment plan (solution that may include physical healing). Wholeness and wellness are important for all of us, and not just attended to in the medical realm.
