Leadership Coaching Services for Health Center Staff
The demands on C-Suite health center executives to provide savvy and effective leadership are intense. Not only is leadership needed within the organization and its teams, but it is also essential for building new community and regional partnerships—partnerships that help to navigate new methods to meet patient population needs. Considering the potential roles health centers may play in statewide and national political and policy spheres, it follows that health center CEOs would benefit from seasoned, contextualized coaching to support them in accelerating the learning curve.
The expectations of health center operations staff are just as demanding. Behind the scenes, there is a whole team of health care providers that are responsible for the patient’s care – from front desk staff, patient registration, nurses, clinicians, community health workers, mental health specialists, pharmacists, and so on. The team works together to anticipate the patient’s needs, communicate their findings with each other, and make sure no aspect of the patient’s health slips through the cracks. From the patient’s perspective, it is seamless, but it takes a lot of coordination and communication to make it happen. It follows that health center operations staff would benefit from seasoned, contextualized coaching to support them in accelerating the effectiveness of these care teams (as individuals and teams).
To ensure health centers build and maintain strategic leadership, NACHC has partnered with Integrated Work (IWS) to offer Leadership Coaching Services for all Health Center staff. This service offers health centers one-on-one or group coaching programs with customized conversations to address the unique leadership needs of health centers. These leadership coaching services are designed to provide health center leaders the support to strategically position themselves for emerging opportunities and to achieve the operational effectiveness to help improve public health outcomes.
Coaching sessions provide a focused time to think strategically with a skilled, objective partner. During sessions, a variety of topics can be explored; however, the focus is primarily on improving individual effectiveness in ways that link to the larger strategic goals of an organization. Coaches can work with individuals on their strategies to become more powerful leaders for positive change and help to increase the effectiveness of their interactions with others. Through coaching, employees learn to improve resilience in the face of adversity, build greater capacity for innovative problem solving, and increase the ability to collaborate effectively with others inside and outside the organization to achieve breakthrough results.
