The 4 in 4 Framework to Achieve Peak Performance Program

Since medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where Daniel founded the UCSF Medical School Network, he has been passionate about the mental and emotional well-being of healthcare providers and the compassionate delivery of health care.

Inspired by this experience, Daniel immersed himself in the fields of neuroscience, emotional intelligence and mindfulness and conducted research on self-doubt to explore how he could help physicians and leaders in business develop conscious leadership skills to enhance not only their personal well-being, but also the well-being of their practices and organizations.

He discovered how the powerful decision making framework of evidence-based medicine (promoting scientific intelligence) also cultivates the emotional intelligence needed to navigate stress and engage more fully into what's most important in one's life to achieve a more holistic experience of health and well-being.


As a result, Daniel created an online training program, The 4 in 4 Framework to Achieve Peak Performance.

This program is based in mindfulness and applied neuroscience to help you manage stress, increase resilience, become more mindful about your mind-body health, improve your relationships and increase clarity, focus and productivity.

Who the 4 in 4 Framework to Achieve Peak Performance Program is for:

  • C-level executives who want to lead more mindfully - through the online program and 1-1 Executive Coaching
  • Physicians suffering from burnout who want to improve their relationships at home and find more meaning in their practice and professional lives
  • Employees participating in company engagement and wellness programs
  • People who want to take control of their mind-body health and wellness.


Daniel also hosts the business podcast, Mindset Matters, which explores the science and stories around how your thoughts, attitudes and perceptions can inspire you to take action to enrich your life and the lives of others.

Recently named a Healthcare Champion of the Year by the San Diego Business Journal, Daniel was awarded the 2015 Wellness Service Provider award.

He is the author of Evidence-Based Medicine: A Framework for Clinical Practice, one of the first books to outline methods to frame questions and find, evaluate, and apply medical literature searches to patient care.

Now all doctors are trained to make healthcare decisions this way.

He also co-wrote and published a book with his 13 year old son, Zach Friedland, called The Big Decision.

Part story, part framework, The Big Decision teaches adolescents, teens, parents, teachers, coaches and leaders how to make better life decisions.

The book incorporates Daniel's 4-Step Evidence Based Medicine Medical Decision Making framework with neuroscience to present a 4 Step Framework for Making Better Decisions - In Life or In Business.

In 2011 Dr. Friedland was instrumental in launching WellnessEvidence.com, the first Evidence-Based Medicine portal for the Spa Industry, and presented a keynote address at the Global Spa Summit to set the scientific foundation for the industry.

Along with Dr. Ken Pelletier, he was awarded SpaFinder’s 2011 Visionary Award (past recipients include Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Andrew Weil).
