When Covenant Health was looking to implement a coach training program, the overarching goal was to ensure we were working toward creating a coaching culture within the organization. Coaching out of the Box was chosen as the program used to facilitate the development of a coaching culture as it is a proven, evidence-based program providing practical learning offerings that result in tangible outcomes for the learner. We wanted participants to be able to experience coaching firsthand and discover for themselves the impact it could have in their lives both personally and professionally. Since implementing the program, we have noted our leaders are much more likely to ask questions rather than tell when a problem presents itself. Leaders listen more deeply and ask better questions. That learning translates in the way we care for each other as employees, but also in the way we care for our patients, residents and families.

The Coaching Fundamentals™ Program offered through COOB is an excellent opportunity to delve deeper into the coaching model over time. the once a week webinar worked for my schedule and the timing invigorated me for my day. I wanted to go out and practice my new skills. The expert facilitators were practical, supportive and inclusive. Their genuine passion with coaching came through and was effective in moving a virtual class to success.

The sessions were the highlight of my week. I communicate differently now. Taking the course encouraged me to question my values around my belief in others-people really do have the best solutions. I am challenged now to put my fear aside when I communicate not be afraid to dig deeper and always be authentic, open and honest. I built some strong bonds with my colleagues at BCCH around coaching-practicing with each other, challenging one another, supporting and nurturing the coach in every one of us. Thank you.

Wonderful opportunity to learn from each other and Master Coaches. Learning environment was very supportive. The instructors really "walked the talk". (How refreshing it was to see to see Powerpoint used to support learning.)

This program really solidified the importance of coaching for me and it heightened my awareness of how I can use coaching in a busy healthcare setting. I really feel as though this program took my beginner coaching skills to the next level and this program is so well put together that it just made it seem easy! I loved it!
