Tasha Walsh, PCC - Director of Integrated Health Services for a Federally Qualified Health Center
“I was looking for a program to help me increase my ability to provide deeply impactful coaching to leaders who had strong egos and were faced with enormous system change. The Healthcare Coaching Institute was exactly what I needed. The course work provided me an opportunity to go deeper within myself as coach and also gave me some tactical knowledge and skills regarding the unique challenge of working with professionals who have been trained to stay in their head and act like they have all the answers. Now that I have my PCC, I plan to expand my coaching practice to focus on helping new era leaders engage the head, heart and gut in discovering their own style of leadership.”
Lisa D. McRoberts, PhDI Senior OD Consultant/Change Management Organizational Transformation Team
“First, it was the relationship I had with DJ Mitsch who guided me to consider what I wanted to do with coaching as an outcome. The connection to healthcare was so important, as there is very little context for working in the space of healthcare. I felt DJ would steer me to the right program regardless, and I consider learning an evergreen competency, so my decision was a thoughtful one. This was the best adult learning I have been through, as it relates to personal growth and development, first for me, and then how I see others.
There is so much that I have gained...learning straight talk to communicate more effectively was one big thing. This program helped me do that in the first three days.
Bottom line: I learned how to honor my character flaws, and get out of my own way. I evolved my professional purpose through coaching. I became a better person.”
Assaad Mounzer, MD, MA, FACS - Urologist and Surgeon
“I believe coaching skills are important in the Healthcare industry which is suffering now from lack of direction, poor leadership, and getting drowned in regulations and becoming less human and more technical. I believe we need to reclaim the humanistic part of Medicine, and focus on the Whole person, not only on the Physical level, but also on the Emotional, Mental, Social and Spiritual levels as well.”
Allison Crumpler, PCC Candidate - Associate Director of Learning and Leadership Development in Pharma Company
“My experience with HCI has been incredible, just incredible. I wasn’t expecting the personal growth. The timing for HCI in my personal and professional life is coming together beautifully. You’re learning to be coached, but you’re also being coached. There is a lot of value in that for me. I think my self-awareness has always been pretty high, but this program has taken it to the next level which has been amazing.”
Kristi D’Errico, ACC - Quality Initiatives Manager in Pharma Company
“There is no question that the HCI faculty leads on all fronts. This amazing group of talented and caring people have changed the lives of everyone they have touched. If you are looking for a school, you have found it and so much more than you could ever imagine. The experience has been like tightening a light bulb that has been loosened by years of expectations.”
Dael Waxman, MD, Vice Chair, Department of Family of Academic Medicine, for Atrium Healthcare.
“When I told colleagues that I was in coaching training, many said ‘but that’s what you do already.’ Well, not really. I acknowledge that I listen well but there is so much else to coaching. I wanted to learn skills to facilitate colleagues and others forward in their growth and development - not just listen well to their current situation. Additionally, in retrospect, I realize that I needed to learn how I was getting in my own way in helping them to do that. As a result of my training in HCI, I am a much more effective leader, colleague, mentor, and yes, coach!”
Dipti Patel-Misra, PhD, MBA, PCC - Chief Data & Analytics Officer in Acute HealthCare Management
“The world class faculty at the Health Care Coaching Institute helped me enhance my coaching skills and specifically showed me how to apply what I learned in a health care leadership role. The new skills I have learnt at HCI have benefitted me tremendously both professionally and personally, it has fueled my soul.”
Sandra Birckhead, MBA, Black Belt Lean Sigma, ACC - Management Consultant and Leadership Coach
“One of the benefits of HCI is when you walk out of the program being able to relate to clients in an entirely different way. You cannot force someone to change their behavior. HCI gives you the skills to enable the client to come up with their own plan and solution.”
Lance Griffin, Green Belt Lean Sigma, ACC - Commercial Training & Development in Pharma Company
”Attending HCI has really helped me evolve as a leader. I’ve gained so many insights that have allowed me to exponentially increase my ability to achieve more, both within myself and those around me. As a result, I’m not just a better leader. I’m also a better husband, father, and friend. This is the school you’ll want to attend, whether you are looking to increase your coaching skills for your own business or, you’re looking to be a more impactful leader within your organization.”
