The Experience to Inspire
At HCI, our leadership coach training program is designed by Master Coaches and thought leaders who are passionate about humanizing the business of healthcare. Our program is a transformative approach that uses coaching methods designed to generate healthier, adaptive, and resilient teams. HCI trained coaches will guide healthcare industry leaders toward personal and professional excellence to create a more inspiring and productive workplace which fosters humanity, dignity, and health.
HCI's mission is to rehumanize and transform healthcare through coaching - one leader, one team, one organization at a time. Our vision is imagining a world where healthcare is a fully integrated system of compassionate care led by those who understand “wholeness” as foundational to humanity’s highest and best expression and contribution.
A Standard of Coaching Excellence
HCI programs are accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). We train participants to become self-aware, wholly curious, and compassionate through a conversational model and coach competency toolkit that satisfies the coursework and mentoring requirements for the ICF professional coach certification. Curriculum options include the full coach training program (125 hours), foundational (60 hours), professional (70 hour) and healthcare (32 hours) levels of certification through the ICF, the industry’s gold standard certification. Professional coaches seeking CCEUs can take relevant electives and courses after a review from our concierge team to add healthcare coaching to their offerings.
An Approach that Transforms
The Healthcare Coaching Institute is designed for individual and team leadership transformation. We aim to accelerate personal evolution and professional development based on a core philosophy that the best leaders and organizations engage their people at the highest levels by cultivating a culture of coaching.
Our students are medical professionals, HR and talent development leaders, and executive educators who bring a new level of credibility to the world of leadership coaching. We consider them partners in the process of teaching coaching skills to meet their growing interests and needs, especially as they address heightened emotions, burnout, and compassion fatigue in their workplaces.These brilliant and accomplished professionals collaborate with our faculty and with each other to continually refine our educational approaches. They help shape the classroom experiences as we teach and facilitate coaching skills development based on the ICF core competencies. Said another way, their contributions elevate our approach to coach education.
We draw from a wide range of disciplines – including Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, Emotional and Social Intelligence, communication awareness and adaptation skills, using ongoing discoveries in the neuroscience of a resilient mind, integrating advances in technology and holistic well-being – to support coaches in having a foundation of partnering with clients to become lifelong learners who grow and transform themselves. Our students develop keen awareness of self as coach through an introduction to the Enneagram model and identification of patterns, including our lighter and shadow sides – our conscious and unconscious behaviors. These practices in self-understanding have become a vital to self-observation, learning, and releasing personal judgments to become present in order to better understand client needs.
We present ICF core coaching competencies as building blocks and correlate these to their understanding of human dynamics with a focus on healthcare leadership.
The globally recognized medicine wheel is used as a symbol for discovery, inviting a more Integrative approach to understanding self and others. Leadership often focuses on physical, mental and emotional intelligence. Our approach integrates spiritual intelligence and engagement of the Anima – that divine spark in humans ignited to create and co-create. We give language to the notion that we are connected to something bigger than ourselves. This mindset provides a perspective particularly relevant to healthcare.
We view our organically grown faculty – graduates of our programs - as partners and guides who understand the culture of healthcare, especially important in the past few years and as common thread for impact throughout the world. We constantly weave their new discoveries into an evolutionary approach of teaching these accomplished souls that coaching is a path of integration – head, heart, and instinctive wisdom to help shift from knowledge as just memorization or cognitive, knowledge centered. This unique approach has the potential to seed curiosity and raise consciousness, a frame so needed to secure humanity’s place in the future of the planet.
