IEHSS congratulates the graduates of the Fall 2020 Team Coaching Program!

The Team Coaching Program is grounded in multiple disciplines, theories, and original research focused on cultivating improvement and group dynamic capabilities, especially valuable during times of uncertainty and challenge. The discipline of team coaching builds on Edgar Schein’s wisdom in “helping” rather than “telling” what to do.

Coaches in Training (CITs) in the Program learn:

  • Fundamentals in applied clinical microsystem theory and practice, including the Microsystem Improvement Process (MIP)
  • A structured, organized process (The Team Coaching Model) for coaching interprofessional teams to improve healthcare, communication, relationships, and team dynamics
  • Team coaching skills and capabilities to advance leadership
  • To develop an individualized coaching plan for personal and professional development as a team coach

The Program is an intensive, dynamic, and highly interactive 6-part series. This course's learning sessions took place online due to COVID-19, and CITs worked with teams both virtually and in-person. To complete the Program, participants must coach one microsystem, attend all sessions and complete a set of final deliverables.
