Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel


The eighth annual Coaching in Leadership & Healthcare conference offered by the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, and Harvard Medical School, serves 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, health and well-being, coaching, positive psychology, behavioral psychology, and neuroscience. We offer breakout sessions in five track domains: 1. Leadership 2. Healthcare 3. Positive Psychology 4. Advanced Practice 5. Small Group Advanced Practice. We also offer a poster session to bring you the latest research.

Professional coaches and the wide dissemination of basic coaching skills will help catalyze the transformation of leadership and healthcare. In organizational leadership, executive coaches play a critical role in developing high-performing leaders who lead in a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous). In the healthcare industry, the treatment of lifestyle-related chronic diseases consumes 70% of healthcare costs, a growing human and economic crisis. Motivating and coaching patients to develop and sustain health-giving behaviors is a pressing application of science-based coaching competencies. Coaches serve well over a $2.0 billion dollar market annually.

The conference is led by the Institute of Coaching and will be highly informative for the seasoned executive or life coach, health and wellness coach, as well as healthcare providers considering adding coaching to their repertoire of services. Our keynotes and breakouts speak to recent developments in leadership coaching as well as the emerging coaching opportunities that can address the healthcare crisis of lifestyle-related chronic diseases. In both areas the research literature, while small, is growing rapidly.
