503 Coaching for Change, Transition and Transformation – WEBINAR

March 2, 2020 – May 4, 2020

Healthcare professionals function within the context of a volatile, uncertain, complex, and rapidly changing environment. Physician dissatisfaction and burnout are oftentimes the result. Coaching can help physicians successfully navigate their way amid this rapid change and avoid being blindsided by burnout. This course builds on the foundational skills in coaching taught in our 501 course to focus on expanding participants’ knowledge of principles of change, transition and transformation. These concepts are then used to further develop participants’ skills in keen listening and powerful questions that help others be proactive in change, understand and leverage transitions for the best outcome and experience transformation at a deep level that flows out to all areas of life. In addition to benefiting personally, participants will be able to apply these skills to maximize their impact with patients, colleagues, team members, family and friends.
