Physician coaching is a professional development resource physicians are just recently discovering. In my experience, physicians and clinical teams greatly appreciate learning additional communication skills. The key is to present coaching much like continuing medical education and not "fluff." They are able to apply the "emotional intelligence" communication skills immediately, and frequently with dramatic results....and breakthroughs in team dynamics.
