RADIO TONI Every Day Business with Toni Lontis
Guest, Dr. Olivia Lee Ong, Compassionate Leadership and Resilience, Medical Leadership Coach and Mentor
As a Compassionate Leadership & Resilience Speaker, Dr. Olivia tells her story of how she overcame a devastating spinal cord injury when she was a resident in 2008 and learned to walk again functionally with two sticks and a limp after four agonizing years. Dr. Olivia’s, spinal cord injury taught her a very important life lesson: self-compassion. This is the premise behind her creative business Dr. Olivia Lee Ong, The Heart-Centred Doctor. As an Author, Olivia has just finished writing her book “The Heart-Centeredness of Medicine”. She wrote the book after seeing and hearing about doctors' burnout due to stress and overwork – Dr. Olivia had actually been one of them. She writes in a way that helps doctors to find their way back home to their hearts. Olivia wants them to be able to lead the heart-centered lives they truly deserve. As a Medical Leadership Coach and Mentor, Dr. Olivia helps busy, high achieving heart-centered doctors avoid burnout and exhaustion, to achieve balanced energy and time flexibility through her Life Transformation for Doctors program. She offers 1:1 coaching, workshops, and speaking engagements on burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma in doctors so they can stay in the game longer as a compassionate leaders and leave a positive legacy for the upcoming generation of young doctors.
