I am very excited about the opportunity once again to attend the Coaching in Leadership and Healthcare conference that is being held in Boston in September. Run by the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, and Harvard Medical School this conference is in its 9th year and I think this will be my fourth visit although it’s been a few years since I last attended.
What is wonderful is to see how this conference has grown to encompass such a large field. The recognition that developing coaching skills can be used to influence professionals in business – both profit and non-profit and the vast domain of healthcare where “science-based coaching competencies can improve motivation and the capacity of patients to develop and sustain health-giving behaviors”. I also love the fact that coaching is now referred to as both an art and a science! A rare combination.
Opportunity to discuss international credentialing
I am looking forward to coming back in October with many ideas and potential news after attending the conference that will further our field in Australia!
