Helping teams to achieve improvements that they have only imagined

The Team Coaching Program is grounded in multiple disciplines, theories, and original research focused on cultivating improvement and group dynamic capabilities at the front line of health care. These skills contribute to value, safety, and quality of care, especially 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. Engaging in dialogue based in curiosity using humble inquiry to develop supportive relationships, explore new possibilities, innovate, and assess desired improvements is core to the program.

The Team Coaching Program is an intensive, dynamic, and highly interactive 6-part series that offers a unique curriculum that blends the art and science of team coaching,  improvement science including measurement and effective communication and team-building knowledge and skills.   The applied theory of team coaching comes to life with the coach learning to help individual team members successfully work together to achieve their improvement goals. This program provides the overview and the individual components of the three phases of "The Team Coaching Model.”  Each participant will benefit from group and one on one learning with an assigned faculty member.

Coaches in Training (CITs) in this program will learn:

  • Fundamentals in applied clinical microsystem theory and practice.
  • A structured organized process (The Team Coaching Model) for coaching interprofessional teams who are working to improve healthcare, communication, relationships and team dynamics.
  • Team coaching skills and capabilities to advance leadership.
  • An individualized coaching plan for personal and professional development as a team coach.

The course is all virtual and takes place in 6 sessions between September 10, 2020 and January 7, 2021

The cost to register is $2,900 and includes a Coach QI toolkit (books and associated fees not included). Discounts available for groups of 3 or larger.
