About Rising Stars
Rising Stars works with healthcare leaders, executives, physicians and their teams who want to be their best, and deliver outstanding results as they transform their hospitals and care facilities, their teams and themselves to achieve their full potential.

COVID-19 is still impacting people of color at a far greater rate than the general population. Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Middle Eastern and Asian professionals are working harder to achieve recognition and get leadership opportunities that allow them to impact, advocate for, and assist others. Health care needs more leaders of color to mirror the communities they serve, to understand patient and community culture and need. The time is now.

Are you ready? You may want coaching if you, or members of your team, are:

  • Getting ready to go up the corporate ladder
  • Taking on a significant new project or scope of work
  • Struggling with rapid change or the pandemic's effect
  • Facing a work challenge and could use a confidential thought partner
  • Feeling plateaued and wanting to reignite
  • Recently hired or newly promoted
  • Wanting to improve interpersonal communication and emotional intelligence
  • Creating a more inclusive culture

You can leverage coaching and leadership development to make it happen.
