September 16, 2016 - 8:00am to September 17, 2016 - 5:00pm
Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel

The ninth 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 and tracks by world leaders in leadership, neuroscience, health and well-being, coaching, behavioral and positive psychology.

Our tracks give you a 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 tracks in six domains: Leadership, Health & Wellness, Positive Psychology, Advanced Practice, Special Topics, and Research Symposium. We also offer a poster session to bring you the latest research.

Professional coaches and professionals developing coaching skills are a powerful catalyst in the business, non-profit, 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 non-profit 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 organizational and healthcare markets for coaching are growing rapidly.

The conference is led by the Institute of Coaching. Our mission is to bring to new and seasoned coaches the highest quality education and thought leadership in translating coaching science into best practices, as well as support professionals adding coaching skills to their repertoires.
