DJ Mitsch, CMC, MCC
Chief Coaching Officer, Curriculum Designer
The vision to start a coaching school wasn’t really late in the evolutionary process of coaching, but a vision that emerged just in time for the field of healthcare and life science to pay attention and prepare to lead in new and holistic ways. Now we are growing that vision to be a leadership focused coaching school, offering the options for coaching in the business of healthcare, as well as the option of coaching leaders to lead in new ways.
DJ was one of the pioneers in the coaching profession and her journey has led to a desire to share her experience and wisdom through the creation of the Healthcare Coaching Institute. As the sixth President of the International Coach Federation and a founding Board member, she helped the ICF drive chapter develop across borders and into Europe and Asia. DJ has mentored over 300 coaches throughout the world and knows what it takes to train professional coaches to build successful businesses.
DJ was one of the first Master Certified Coaches and co-founder with husband Barry Mitsch of The Pyramid Resource Group in 1994 – – one of the first corporate coaching companies in the world. Taking the knowledge of her experience as a leader in a broadcasting career and blending that with the technology of coaching, DJ became an expert in team coaching and is the creator of Team Advantage, a cutting edge corporate program that leads to extraordinary team achievements and team transformation. White papers and research point to the bottom-line results of hundreds of teams who have successfully completed the process.
Prior to entering the coaching field, she had a stellar career in the fast-moving world of broadcasting and managed new project start-ups and sports radio networks as US based broadcast companies diversified into the world of cable and satellite technologies. Her love for coaching has expanded as a result of the many brilliant connections and clients she has personally coached and the companies Pyramid has served. The mother of two, she is a fan of Jessica and Hank Mitsch who she claims came to the planet to teach her many life lessons.
