Diane W. Shanon – Short Bio


Diane W. Shannon MD, MPH, ACC is a former primary care physician and professional coach. She is co-author of Preventing Physician Burnout: Curing the Chaos and Returning Joy to the Practice of Medicine and has researched the challenges facing women physicians today. She uses a coaching approach that builds on strengths and aligns with her personal values of authentic connection, compassion, and the thrill of growth and improvement. She knows what it’s like to feel way too busy and overwhelmed. As a coach she helps busy women physicians harness their superpowers and navigate their way to a life that works so they can truly thrive.

“My over-arching goal was to work toward finding another partner/provider in my pediatric practice, in order to help myself achieve a better work/life balance. The group coaching program helped me clearly identify some smaller sub-goals, which were more attainable in the short-term. Diane was very helpful in refining those goals, and the input of the group felt very supportive and understanding. It was also helpful in terms of accountability to have the structure of the group and Diane’s leadership.”
