Mentoring with a Coach Approach

September 29, 2022 – October 27, 2022

Online Webinar

Mentoring has been proven to promote the academic and professional growth of healthcare professionals, while coaching is gaining traction as a way of promoting physician well-being and growing leadership skills. Combining the skills of mentor and coach can result in more satisfying and effective mentor-mentee relationships. This five week course introduces a framework that utilizes a “coach approach” to mentoring, with an emphasis on a reflective process that nurtures well-being. We will utilize If I Should Die Before I Live (book and companion guide) by Ken Jones to help develop this framework and apply to the mentoring relationship.

Using a “coach approach” will help you increase your impact as a mentor. You will gain skills to help integrate the coaching mindset into the mentoring process in order to help your mentees maximize their ability to problem solve and sort out what matters most in life. Course credits: CME: maximum of 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. This is a highly interactive course. Registration is open to all healthcare professionals and others who work with healthcare professionals.

  • Cancellation fee: $100 after September 15, 2022 at 3:00 a.m. ET.
