Coaching for Impressive Care for Managers and Supervisors
Positive patient experience is a function of the quality of interactions between all members of the healthcare team and patients. When employees know what is expected of them and have strong supports, effective training and appropriate guidance, they maintain high levels of engagement and perform well: everyone benefits!
Evidence in the literature and workplace best practices concur about the importance of the relationship between employees and their direct supervisors for employee engagement, performance and satisfaction. Supervisors’ relationship-based coaching skills are essential.
Few front-line supervisors have had training in coaching others on skilled communication. Coaching for Impressive Care for Managers and Supervisors was developed at the request of IHC client organizations to provide evidence-based skills for coaching staff members. Coaching for Impressive Care uses the principles of Treating Patients with C.A.R.E. as they apply to interactions with employees, to maximize skills modeling as a source of employee learning.
