IOC Award Recipients 2019

The Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate, is honored to present the 2019 Vision of Excellence award to Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman. The Vision of Excellence award was established to recognize lasting contributions and pioneering work on the scientific foundation of coaching. The award will be presented at the Institute of Coaching Conference, which will also feature a discussion with the Gottmans. Although the Gottmans are known for their work on romantic relationships, their research is invaluable in managing professional relationships and work-life balance, showcasing the behaviors and thoughts that harm relationships and teaching those which foster healthy, lasting relationships.
