The 10th Annual Coaching in Leadership & Healthcare Conference is offered by the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, and Harvard Medical School. Our goal is to serve leaders, physicians, healthcare providers, executive coaches, life coaches and health and wellness coaches. This energizing and groundbreaking event features keynotes by world leaders in leadership, neuroscience, health and well-being, coaching, behavioral and positive psychology.

Our breakout sessions give participants the chance to take a deeper dive into the science and art of coaching. These three-hour sessions are led by some of our keynote presenters as well as highly respected thought leaders and senior coaches. We offer breakout sessions in six track domains:

  1. Leadership
  2. Health & Wellness
  3. Positive Psychology
  4. Advanced Practice
  5. Special Topics
  6. Research Symposium

We also offer a poster session to bring you the latest research.

Professional coaching and professionals developing coaching skills are a powerful catalyst in the business, nonprofit and healthcare domains. Executive and leadership coaches play a critical role in developing high-performing leaders who lead in a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous). In nonprofit organizations, coaching helps empower leaders and communities to live their missions more effectively. In the healthcare industry, applying science-based coaching competencies can improve motivation and the capacity of patients to develop and sustain health-giving behaviors. As treatment of lifestyle-related chronic diseases consumes 70% of healthcare costs the field helps meet a growing human and economic crisis. The business and healthcare market for coaching is growing rapidly.

The conference is led by the Institute of Coaching (www.instituteofcoaching.org). Our mission is to bring the highest quality education and thought leadership to both the seasoned coach as well as those adding coaching skills to their repertoire of leadership or professional services. We offer extensive education at our website to support your conference learning.

Thank you for joining our event.

The 2017 conference is dedicated to Sir John Whitmore who died in April 2017. Sadly, the global coaching field has lost one of its pioneering founders, an executive coach, teacher, author, and innovator (and race car driver) with a warm heart.
