Experiences of Others
I am a family physician working in Edmonton in a multidisciplinary clinic. I am new to
coaching but am extremely grateful that my PCN was able to provide this opportunity for
myself and our board members. Initially, I had little idea what to expect nor what I might
gain from coaching. To be honest, I was a little skeptical. However, as my coach and I
worked our way through the process, it was apparent to me that the questions I had
about my career, my path and myself became much more accessible Therefore, it was
easier to address them in a thoughtful and productive manner. I can’t express how
helpful this process has been for me, both professionally and personally.
Dr Pedersen was insightful, nonjudgmental and very encouraging in her approach and comments.
She is great at helping you see more clearly the choices that could be made, and is very good at
facilitating the construction of pathways towards goals.
Beth is a very patient listener and supportive coach. She is very flexible and adapts to the needs of
her client. She is able to take a complex conversation and replay the theme so that it is easier to
see the key element. Beth gave me the time and opportunity to process a hectic couple of years

able to take the time to reflect on the past and start rebuilding the future. I really appreciated
Beth’s creative background. It is a great resource for problem solving and thinking outside of the
My personal coach helped me to identify my strengths and how to best leverage them. She also
helped me to identify areas in which I could improve and determine strategies for how to
address them. I was encouraged to see how leadership means much more than holding
administrative positions in organizations, as it also includes coordinating patient care,
communicating among team members, and clinical management, just to name a few. I have
come to see coaching, and the skills that I have learned, as part of my wellness strategy
because I feel more capable now. So much of what I have learned has proven useful in
personal situations and in my own personal growth. I am very grateful to have had this
