Healthcare Leader as Coach: A Brain-Based Approach to High Impact Conversations

Program Overview

Brain research illustrates that focusing on problems or challenging behavior reinforces those problems and behaviors. Due to the human brain being deeply social, telling people what to do, giving advice, or relying on incentives and threats to change human behavior often results in a shutting down of the brain’s learning centers required for growth and the development of new habits and skills. This workshop concentrates on utilizing a brain-based coaching approach that focuses healthcare leaders on present and future possibilities and solutions. During this interactive learning experience, leaders discover how to help people develop new neural pathways in the brain that result in new thinking patterns. They will learn that the human brain operates in a quantum environment, where perceptions of the world around us and our thinking modify the connections and pathways in our brains. Through experiential activities and group discussions, leaders learn the power of cultivating a growth mindset to help people self-direct attention to new ways of being that produce sustainable individual change. Research shows that developing the ‘coaching habit’ can be a game changer for leaders who want to help people update thinking patterns, attitudes, and behaviors so that they are in line with best practice and the achievement of positive client level outcomes.
