Marathons for EI

Marathon Coaching to Develop Emotional Intelligence Skills (EQ) for physicians and surgeons.


Coaching for Physicians can schedule appointments for Marathon coaching to develop emotional intelligence skills, either at Dr. Hudson’s farm in Cedar Grove, Santa Fe, NM or his uptown office location in Albuquerque. For an additional fee and expenses, Dr. Hudson will come to you and provide one-on-one, confidential marathon coaching intensives in your home, office or other location.


This is NOT group work. In marathon coaching  individuals meet one-on-one with Dr. Hudson for 5 hours a day and for 1-3 consecutive days and stay overnight at a nearby hotel or bed and breakfast (we can help you make arrangements). Each individual  has a unique schedule that is worked out in advance. 


Marathon coaching is especially useful for physician and surgeon clients who cannot attend weekly coaching sessions and need to travel from distant locations. It provides a brief, intensive and focused approach to your coaching issues and is designed to help you learn new skills in less time. Follow up sessions are provided at the regular rates for telephone or in person coaching.


One of the most common complaints leveled against doctors by patients and nurses is that the doctor lacks empathy and basic communication skills. This is not surprising given the selection process for medical school and the methods used in medical training. Many of the relationship issues in a  physician’s life could be improved with some basic training in emotional intelligence.  


Marathon coaching teaches essential information about emotional intelligence and provides the skills needed to communicate better with patients, colleagues, staff members and even partners and spouses. 


By the end of this marathon session, participants should be able to:

  • Define and practice self-management and self-awareness 
  • Understand the value and importance of empathy
  • Know the difference between sympathy and empathy
  • Increase the "sweet spot" where EQ, IQ and personality overlap
  • Appreciate the influence of physician personality and training on emotional intelligence
  • Understand, use and manage your emotions
  • Set boundaries and communicate needs
  • Know the difference between a boundary and an expectation
  • Verbally communicate with others
  • Successfully communicate with others in a non-verbal manner
  • Identify the benefits of emotional intelligence
  • Relate emotional intelligence to the medical workplace
  • Balance optimism and pessimism
  • Effectively impact others
  • … and much more
