Turn An Overwhelmed Life Into A Fulfilled Life
Filled up life? Or a fulfilled life? The choice is yours. As a high-performing surgeon, you deserve a coach who understands you and what you’re going through, and how to shift gears.
Have You Stopped To Examine Your Life As Closely As You Examine Your Work?
Surgeons live by the best practices to ensure the best outcomes at work. The demands of showing up fully for your career can take a toll on other important aspects of your life.
- Building frustration with “the little things”
- Feeling like something is missing
- A sense of loneliness or isolation
- As if you have lost the real “you” in the fray of medicine
You deserve to live a fulfilling life.
There Is More To Life Than Optimizing Yourself Like A Machine

CEO of TRG Arts
“Mike is a tremendous resource for leadership development in Cardiothoracic surgery. He knows our environment better than any executive coach because he has walked the walk. He has made it his life’s mission to be facile with all of the best leadership literature, thought leaders, and the context for applying this to our careers. On top of these he deeply cares about the people he coaches. He inculcates us with wellness strategies and helps us with prioritization of work AND life demands, recognizing that we are not just surgeons, but moms, dads, daughters, and sons and partners to our significant others.
I am most certainly a better person, more self-aware, and poised to advance my leadership capabilities because of Mike’s coaching. It has truly been a blessing to work with him.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for being my coach.”

“I have been part of a surgeon’s group that Mike has run for over 4 years. His depth of knowledge about being human and about the specific tools and techniques to be your best self in all aspects of our lives is sensational. He drills down the proven techniques to be intentional in all aspects of our lives that significantly impact our well-being. Working with Mike has had a major positive impact on my life, at home with my wife and children and at work, particularly in helping me know my true self better and in developing my leadership skills. Don’t hesitate, and don’t wait. The time is now.”

“Mike’s magnetic personality, charm and vulnerability create an environment for honest and deep introspection and personal growth. He is a warm, genuine and honest man who wants to use what he has learned to improve the lives of all he can reach. He is highly skilled at being an astute listener and a non-judgemental observer of human interaction and conduct. His gift of clear seeing and assessment is carefully and patiently applied to simplify complex psycho-emotional constructs. Stones are not left unturned – he does not soft-sell his assessment of a situation and presents concise action plan options for the resolution of challenges, as well as ways to infuse increased joy in life.”

Golfers have swing coaches. Baseball players have swing coaches. It’s only natural that leaders and high performers need leadership coaches. Dr. Maddaus has been instrumental in guiding me to understand and organize the big picture and then dive deep into the weeds without getting lost along the way. More importantly, he emphasizes the value of self-preservation, wellness, and balance throughout the process. I offer Dr. Maddaus my unwavering and strongest endorsement. Thank you for what you do.
