Cathy Lanteri, MD

Carolyn LanteriCathy Lanteri, MD, brings a distinctive breadth of expertise in medicine, leadership, communications, and behavioral dynamics to help healthcare leaders strengthen their management effectiveness through enhanced clarity of vision and advanced behavioral skills.

Dr. Lanteri draws from 25 years of medical experience – at major Harvard teaching hospitals, developing a community satellite clinic, building a private practice – to bring a ground level understanding of the medical environment to her work.  She combines this with knowledge of human dynamics and neurobehavior to heighten leadership performance.  This starts with clarifying vision and values to create goals. Clients then use enhanced interpersonal skills in communication, conflict resolution, motivation, and team building to accomplish their plans.  Stakeholder involvement may be incorporated in this work through 360˚ evaluations and direct interviews, as well as peer coaching programs to strengthen leadership support for physician executives.

Outside of her coaching and medical practice, Dr. Lanteri is also dedicated to physician development, giving presentations on career leadership and burnout prevention.  She is on the advisory board of the Physician Coaching Institute, where she developed educational programming for graduate coaches.

Dr. Lanteri moved from Oklahoma to Massachusetts for residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Subsequently, she served on staff at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, as a Harvard Medical School instructor, and designed curriculum for the Harvard-Longwood psychiatry residency.  Prior to medical school she was an award winning journalist and honed organizational skills in government and political leadership positions.
