Clinical Health Coach® Training Program Preparation and Time Investment
Learning new coaching and communications skills takes both time and practice, and this program addresses these needs steadily over the course of the curriculum. We begin with teaching foundational skills then build out content and focus on growing your abilities and efficacy. The program offers structured learning through both onsite and distance education, and facilitated coaching practice through telephone-based practice sessions. Participants will be expected to commit additional time for completion of program preparation assessments, buddy coaching activities through the six weeks, and meeting with leaders and team mates to complete a focused learning project. The preparation activities will require approximately 2 hours of time, and buddy coaching and project activities will require approximately 2-3 hours per week.
