TD at Work Cover

The complex and changing nature of healthcare makes professional development and growth a necessity and a challenge. Coaching may be the key to helping healthcare professionals navigate this tricky terrain and become curious, courageous, and energized in their pursuit of better care for patients. 

In this issue of TD at Work, healthcare and coaching professionals DJ Mitsch, Mark Greenawald, and Cindi Ackrill explore how coaching can help medical personnel reframe their thinking to prevent burnout while achieving greater success in their work. 

Among the resources in “Coaching in Healthcare,” you will find:

  • tips for building a case for coaching
  • sample coaching questions
  • a coaching journey map
  • descriptions of different types of coaching
  • a self-coaching exercise.
