DEB GERARDI, RN MPH, JD - PCC
This program is designed for health professionals responsible for managing clinical change initiatives and delivery of health services across the care continuum. This experiential, one-day coaching skills workshop is designed to provide practice and application of a coach approach to support clinical behavior change that leads to improved quality outcomes.
Coaching refers to partnering in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires people to maximize their personal and professional potential. Use of a coaching approach can foster critical thinking, self-agency, and personal resilience. Coaching is an effective method for facilitating adaptation to change including working with resistance, overwhelm and skepticism.
In this workshop, the healthcare team will learn the coaching core competencies, practice coaching skills, and identify strategies for integrating a ‘coach approach’ into current change initiatives in the healthcare setting. Clinicians and leaders will work with their own habits in order to help others move through change. In addition, participants will learn the Bridges Transition Model for working with adaptive behaviors following clinical change implementation.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Describe how coaching differs from mentoring, directing, advising, counseling and teaching as a means of supporting behavior change in the healthcare setting. • Describe the Bridges Transition model and how coaching can help people move along the continuum.
• Identify opportunities for initiating coaching conversations to support the development of self-awareness, critical thinking, and self-agency to improve patient and family communication.
• Practice coaching skills including sensing and noticing, presence, layered listening, the use of powerful questions; and helping others move from insight to action.
• Describe habits that can get in the way of using a coach approach in your clinical and/ or leadership role.
• Describe the GROW spot coaching model.
