Dr. Cindi Ackrill, MD brings a unique background to her leadership coaching. A graduate of Duke University and University of Maryland School of Medicine, she practiced primary care in both private and public health settings. Then motivated by her family’s ADHD, she spent a decade practicing applied neuropsychology, essentially looking “under the hood” of human behavior with brain-mapping and biofeedback. Still fascinated by how to really motivate and support healthy behavior choice, she turned to coach training and is certified in wellness coaching and leadership coaching. She became a firm believer that:
1. Self-care IS leadership!
2. We need to embrace working with (instead of fighting) what makes us most human and strong.
3. We can do this better together.
Cindi has worked extensively with physicians, attorneys, and professionals and executives in a variety of industries including the hardest: parenting—all high achievers trying to figure out how to be more effective, how to integrate the many demands of life and career, while finding meaning and deep satisfaction, as well as some fun. She also serves on the board of the American Institute of Stress and as faculty for the Healthcare Coaching Institute, College for Executive Coaching, and a Federal Leadership Institute, and speaks internationally about stress and energy management management, preventing burnout, and making happy brain choices.
