The Team Coaching Program is grounded in multiple disciplines, theories, and original research focused on cultivating improvement and group dynamic capabilities at the front line of health care. These skills contribute to the growth of value, safety, and quality of care, especially crucial during times of uncertainty and challenge. The discipline of team coaching builds on Edgar Schein’s wisdom in “helping” rather than “telling” what to do. Engaging in dialogue based on curiosity and humble inquiry to develop supportive relationships, explore new possibilities, innovate, and assess desired improvements is core to the program.
Participants will develop:
• Fundamentals in applied clinical microsystem theory and practice.
• A structured organized process (The Team Coaching Model) for coaching interprofessional teams who are working to improve healthcare.
• Team coaching skills and capabilities to advance leadership.
• An individualized coaching plan for personal and professional development as a team coach.

Participants benefit from a baseline and post-program assessment of their coaching capabilities and team improvement skills (The Quality Improvement Assessment Tool - a validated instrument to measure and report improvement knowledge and skills before and after the Team Coaching Program).

Enrolled participants are required to have an improvement team or other interprofessional team to practice team coaching skills and knowledge continuously throughout the Team Coaching program. Advanced identification of the team members and sharing the Team Coaching timeline with them is helpful preparation. You will coach the team every week for 60 minutes or at a minimum every other week for 90 minutes.

This is a 5-month series that due to the current COVID-19 situation, we will be holding these sessions virtually.
