Webinars Q&A

Healthcare professionals today face complex challenges including a pandemic, financial pressures, workforce shortages, and a lack of work-life balance. In this environment, healthcare leaders have daunting responsibilities to improve patient care, empower their teams, and foster resilience among providers.  This program is designed for busy healthcare professionals — clinician and non-clinicians alike — who are committed to creating a culture of resilience by adopting coaching mindsets and applying coach-like skills.

Now more than ever, leading in healthcare is a formidable challenge. Among the many crises facing healthcare, a lack of provider well-being is affecting patient care, recruitment, retention, and bottom-line results.

Leadership Training for Healthcare Providers

Research indicates that coaching is a viable and effective intervention to alleviate burnout and improve well-being among healthcare providers. Studies reveal that coaching is effective in reducing emotional exhaustion and overall burnout while improving quality of life, work satisfaction and engagement. Leadership Coaching for Healthcare Professionals introduces participants to coaching tools that can be applied in a variety of contexts to foster resilience in themselves and others.

This highly experiential blended  online learning program emphasizes practical application of skills and is taught by trainers with extensive experience coaching in healthcare. The lead faculty provide a unique combination of educational excellence, coaching content expertise, and first-hand healthcare knowledge. All coaching skills, concepts, and cases are taught based on current challenges in the healthcare environment.

Did you know?

In the past few years, the growing prevalence of ‘burnout syndrome’ among healthcare personnel has gained attention as a potential threat to patient safety and the quality of healthcare. A Mayo Clinic Survey of physicians found that, nationally, 42% experienced symptoms of burnout in 2021.
The Three Cardinal Symptoms of Burnout:

#1: Exhaustion

#2: Depersonalization

#3: Lack of Efficacy

Despite being prevalent within the healthcare industry there are a lack of resources available to help people suffering with this stress. Burnout is costly for the healthcare industry.  In a paper published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, physician burnout is costing the United States healthcare industry an estimated $4.6 billion per year. 

The healthcare industry presents challenges unique to the profession and whilst not all the stressors can be controlled, developing a culture of resilience will help workers develop skills to help confront some of the challenges and maintain overall wellbeing.
