Coaching in the Healthcare Setting: Success Stories & Lessons Learned

Last month we talked about how to bring coaching successfully to your organization. This month we continue our focus on organizations by looking at coaching in the healthcare setting. We’ll look at case studies to illustrate the approaches organizations are using to bring coaching in, how they are measuring results and the real-life impact that coaching is having on these healthcare organizations.

Why healthcare? Most organizations, including those involved in delivering healthcare, are changing at an ever-increasing rate. This rapid pace of change is creating a need for a new way to lead that will produce positive and sustainable change; a leadership approach that is adaptable to both internal and external change. At the same time, leaders and managers are under pressure to find cost effective training programs and to provide evidence, through objective measurement, of the results achieved. We think the success stories and lessons learned in healthcare can apply to organizations in any industry, providing real learning experiences for all.

We have worked with many healthcare organizations to help them create a coaching culture and in the process developed coaching skills in over 5,000 people to date. Following is a synopsis of what these organizations are teaching us about what it takes to bring coaching in successfully and the results that can be achieved.

Before you begin: setting your organization up for success

Before embarking on a coaching program, it is very important to make sure the organization is ready. As we mentioned last month, there are certain traits common among organizations that have successfully implemented a coaching program. Review the checklist below to make sure your organization is ready to bring coaching in;

  • The business need is clearly identified and coaching is a tool that is aligned with addressing those needs
  • Clearly defined goals and objectives for the coaching program have been identified and communicated
  • Coaching champions have been identified and are on-board
  • The training will be delivered in a format that is best suited for the organization, for example, on-site, remote or a blend
  • The program will have a framework that makes it easy to learn and easy to apply so that it can be consistently delivered with reproducible results.

Before you begin: know how you will measure results and determine success

Initiating a coaching skills development program involves the commitment of resources; both time and money. Just like any other organizational initiative, it is important to know upfront how results will be measured and how success of the program will be determined. While the actual measurement methodology may vary depending on the organization’s objectives and culture, it is important to have a clearly defined measurement plan in place. The results measurement plan should be documented, communicated and have stakeholder buy in before the coaching program begins.

Results achieved: the powerful and exciting part

The results that can be achieved when a coaching program is successfully implemented are so motivating and exciting to see. Individuals, teams and entire organizations are being transformed. Following is an example of results being achieved when coaching is successfully implemented.

  1. Improved Listening
  2. Improved Communication
  3. Improved Ability to Give Feedback
  4. Improved Conflict Resolution
  5. Positively Impacted Relationships
  6. Improvement in Team Dynamics & Team Communication
  7. Increased Ability to Engage Staff in Conversations that are Solutions-Focused and Promote Accountability

Trickledown Effect: The Power of Coaching Skills

In addition to expected results, healthcare organizations are experiencing a powerful trickledown effect from their coaching skills development programs. These organizations found that participants began applying their newly developed coaching skills to interactions not only with co-workers but also with patients and their families, leading to better communication and care.

How to bring Coaching Successfully to
Your Organization

image

The type of work we are doing, how work gets done and the working environment is changing rapidly. Here are just a few examples of how organizations and their leaders are being challenged;

  • Everyone is being asked to do more with less
  • New technology and rapidly changing systems require organizations to be more agile, innovative, responsive and adaptable
  • There has been a tremendous shift from routine, repetitive measurable work, to work that involves critical thinking, analysis and creativity

These changes are putting increased pressure on leaders and managers to adapt and find new ways to lead that will bring about peak performance from individuals and teams. One approach that many organizations are turning to for help with these ever-increasing challenges is coaching.

How do you bring coaching in to your organization and have it embedded throughout the organization so that the skills are learned and then practiced in everyday situations? And how do you sustain this?

As with most things in life – there is not a one size fits all approach to bringing coaching in and having it disseminated throughout the organization. It can seem overwhelming to think about selecting a coaching program and then going about getting everyone trained. This can be especially daunting when you have multiple locations and/or a remote workforce.

We’ve worked with many different organizations in different industries. When coaching is implemented successfully we see certain commonalities. Here are some of the traits shared by those that have been successful in bringing coaching to their organization;

  • The business need is clearly identified and coaching is a tool that is aligned with addressing those needs
  • Clearly defined goals and objectives for the coaching program have been identified and communicated
  • Coaching champions have been identified and are on-board. Champions are individuals with authority and influence who will act as coaching advocates and remove roadblocks. These are often members of senior leadership or HR/Learning and Development leaders or other appropriate individuals
  • The training will be delivered in a format that is best suited for the organization, for example, on-site, remote or a blend. Delivery of the training will be efficient, cost-effective and convenient to maximize participation without putting undue hardships on participants or significantly disrupting business operations
  • Regardless of how the training is delivered, successful organizations adopt a program that is aligned with their needs and culture. The program will have a framework that makes it easy to learn and easy to apply so that it can be consistently delivered with reproducible results.

Making it as a Coach: Strategies for Success

image

The professional coaching industry is growing rapidly, creating new opportunities as well as challenges for both new and experienced coaches.

Here are just a few impressive statistics to illustrate the growth and size of this industry.

  • In 2012 the ICF estimated that there were 41,300 active coaches worldwide who generated nearly $2 billion in annual revenue. This number has increased to 53,300 professional coach practitioners worldwide.
  • In 2014 IBISWorld, a research organization, reported that coaching is a $1 billion industry in the U.S. alone.
  • In the last ten years, membership of the International Coach Federation has more than tripled.

Experts suggest there are several key factors that have led to the explosive growth of coaching. Each provides opportunities as well as some challenges to Making it as a Coach. Key factors contributing to the growth of coaching include;

  • The need. The type of work being performed and the way that work gets done have changed. We have moved from routine, repetitive measurable work, to work that involves critical thinking, analysis and creativity. The old ways of managing and leading are not effective in today’s environment. What is more effective for this environment is competency in soft skills, i.e. coaching. Managers, leaders and their teams are seeking these skills.
  • A change in corporate culture. Companies that once provided coaching only to C-suite executives now offer it to middle managers and throughout the organization.
  • Results. Surveys as well as anecdotal information demonstrates coaching works. In an independent global survey released last year by the ICF, 85 percent of respondents who had been in a coaching relationship said they were somewhat or very satisfied.
  • Relatively low barrier to entry. The industry is not regulated and there is no requirement that one attains a certain level of training or education prior to becoming a coach. Note: This is also one of the challenges faced by new and experienced coaches – how to establish credibility and set yourself apart.

So, with a growing industry that presents many opportunities as well as a few challenges, what does it take to Make it as a Coach? Hint: It is more than just good coaching skills. Yes, it is important to get quality training, to develop good coaching skills and gain confidence. But success as a coach goes much further.

In an organization, success is not just about good coaching skills but also doing the work yourself and being a coaching role model. As coaches, we need clear objectives and goals. We need a clear path on how we will achieve our goals and we need to understand what is holding us back. People are drawn to those who exhibit the attributes they are seeking so it is important that we get our house in order first.

As a solopreneur, Making it as a Coach is not only about excellence in coaching skills but setting up and managing a business. This includes business development, marketing, operations and finance. It is important to have a plan on how you will manage your business in addition to coaching your clients.

So, what are the keys to Making it as a Coach? We will explore this topic further during our next free webinar. During this webinar, you will learn what is required to Make it as a Coach and specific strategies for success. Topics that will be covered;

  • Credentialing – is it needed and what are the requirements
  • What attributes clients look for in a coach
  • Strategies for Success including;
    o Tips for Making it as a Coach within an organization
    o Tips for Making it as a Coach as a solopreneur
    o How to set yourself apart from the competition

Coaching Breakthroughs:
Diving Deeper to Move Forward

image

Coaching at its core is about helping people improve, grow and achieve their goals. This journey, moving a coachee from where they are stuck today to where they want to be in the future, typically involves in-depth work to uncover blocks, expose blind spots and challenge detrimental self-beliefs. It also involves exploration of personal and professional obstacles as the two are often intertwined. In fact, it is not uncommon to discover that the thing holding a coachee back from achieving his/her personal goals is the same obstacle that is preventing attainment of professional goals.

Identifying the obstacles holding one back might seem straightforward but experienced coaches know that this can be a complex process. The coach must help the coachee look at many different areas, peel back multiple layers and uncover hidden factors, many of which are emotionally charged issues that must be dealt with. Let’s face it. Identifying the obstacles holding a coachee back is complex because people are complex.

Obstacles often put their roots down early in one’s life. It may start with an experience early in life that produces a negative outcome. That experience/negative outcome is repeated and, over time, becomes a belief. The individual may have forgotten how it all started and is no longer able to recognize the obstacle or its source. The patterns have become so ingrained in a person’s psyche that they are seen as truth. Guiding someone through the discovery process to understand that these ‘truths’ are what is actually holding them back can take time and expertise. You’ve got to start at the surface and then peel back the layers to get to the root of the obstacle. It is precisely through this process of discovery that the real breakthroughs occur. The aha moments. We call this diving deeper. So how do you dive deeper with a coachee into meaningful discovery about themselves and their situation?

We will explore this topic during our next free webinar. During this webinar, you will learn what is required to explore and uncover areas that are often at the source of where a coachee becomes stuck, self-defeating or demotivated without inserting your bias.

Webinar: Coaching Breakthroughs - Diving Deeper to Move Forward

As coaches, one of our key areas of focus is to help our coachees achieve their goals. The ability to set and consistently achieve one’s goals has many benefits including improved performance and heightened self-confidence. But getting the coachee to this point typically involves in-depth work to uncover blocks, expose blind spots and challenge detrimental self-beliefs. Coaches, by using their questioning, listening and framing skills, can guide their coachees through the discovery process to help them gain new insights about what is holding them back.

We’ve created this webinar, specifically to show you tips and techniques to dive deeperwith your coachees so that they can have the breakthroughs and aha moments that will get them unstuck and on the road to goal attainment. Topics we will cover include;

  • How to establish trust
  • Techniques for getting to the root source of what is holding the coachee back
  • How to bring about awareness of where a coachee may be kidding themselves or are blind to seeing
  • Ways to identify resistance to change – what to listen for and questions to ask

Tips on Diving Deeper to Get More Breakthroughs

This month we are focusing on diving deeper with your coachee to help them uncover blocks to moving forward and goal attainment. Here are a few tips we’ve found particularly useful.

  • Ask questions that help you peel back the layers to uncover what is getting in the way or holding your coachee back. Remember these can be personal or professional, home or work.
  • Identify the areas that are causing the most stress and getting in the way of goal achievement.
  • Don’t try to tackle everything at once. Determine the key areas to focus attention on and then prioritize.
  • Rinse and repeat. This is an on-going process. Work with your coachee to set up accountability check points along the journey.

Exploring the Many Paths in Coaching

If you know me, you know that I am passionate about coaching and I speak often about our MISSION – to see that everyone has coaching skills. What fuels this passion? First and foremost, it is the positive impact coaching has on the personal and professional lives of those who take the skills development courses and do the work.

There is another reason I am excited about coaching but one that gets mentioned less often. This has to do with the tremendous number of opportunities and the many paths that one can take in the field of coaching. Individuals who enter the coaching field come from diverse backgrounds, with different educations and their own set of goals but tend to share a common passion for helping others achieve their best. I think this is one of the reasons that coaching attracts so many high quality and truly awesome people. Just as people enter coaching with differences, the field of coaching provides many different opportunities to allow each person to follow his/her passion for helping others in ways that fit with their own goals, personality, life style and needs. That is truly powerful.

Many people think coaching is for someone that wants to be a Solopreneur; a person that wants to start their own business, build a clientele, work virtually etc. And that is definitely one common path. But that is certainly not the only path.

Another option is to pursue Coaching Within Organizations; this involves coaching employees, using coach like skills within an organization to lead others and help them achieve their best. Most often this starts with mid-level to senior-level managers but often permeates the organization at all levels and in all functional areas.

A third path, and one that is not as commonly considered, is to become a Coaching Educator. In this path you are educating others, helping them develop coaching skills rather than coaching per se. Of course, you are using your coaching skills in the education process.

Again, one of the great things about coaching is that these different paths are not mutually exclusive. You can pursue one or a blend. To help you sort through the options and determine the best fit for you I’ve created this Quick Guide to help you compare and contrast the three paths. The guide and attributes listed are just one way to think about the different paths.

Coaching Paths: A Quick Guide

If you are not sure what path(s) are right for you or you’d like to learn more, please join us on February 15. During our free monthly webinar, we will be discussing this topic in detail with a particular focus on the Coaching Educator path and how adding this to your toolkit can enhance your skills and open up new opportunities.

Webinar: Exploring the Many Paths in Coaching

There are a number of paths one can pursue in coaching. It is not always clear which to choose or if you need to choose. We receive many questions on this topic – it is a very important decision and the answer is not always clear. The goal of this webinar is to help you understand the paths available and identify and navigate to the one that is best for you.

Questions we frequently receive and we will answer during this webinar include;

  • What are the education and training requirements of each path?
  • Are there certain goals, personality type, life-style requirements that make one path better suited than another?
  • What is the role of a Coaching Educator?
  • How can becoming a Coaching Educator help me achieve my goals?
  • Are there specific training requirements to become a Coaching Educator?
  • Do previous courses, training, on the job coaching apply to the Educator requirements?
  • What path is most lucrative?

S - Specific
