So, can I say I’m a Harvard graduate when I come back from this weekend in Boston?
I’m going to the Institute of Coaching, a Harvard Medical School affiliate for the fourth annualCoaching in Leadership and Healthcare conference.
It promises to be both educational and interesting with some of the leaders in the coaching field leading discussions and facilitating workshops. Many also come from the field of positive psychology. People like Margaret Moore, Carol Kaufman, Bob Kegan and Richard Kogan.
This is an annual conference designed for those in psychiatry, psychology, behavioral medicine, mental health clinicians, physical medicine & rehabilitation and coaches.And healthcare providers who want to add coaching to their repertoire of skills. Here’s a detailed itinerary.
While we know patients with diabetes are still failing, in droves, to adapt healthier lifestyle habits, coaching patients is beginning to be recognized as a key instrument and support to help patients improve their diabetes self-management.
Of course I’m looking forward to the great seafood tonight as I’m meeting a friend on the waterfront by my hotel.
