Coaching supports staff in providing their best care. When safe space is created, coaching is a transformative force. Professional growth occurs as coaching evokes inner personal passion and develops steps for actualizing this passion in present life. When staff encounters new responsibilities, anxiety can create conflict. Coaching can access the agency of leadership within and turn anxiety to excitement and investment. Staff facing multiple losses and constant change in the workplace experience energy through a coach approach in supervision. Relationships with patients and families deepen and staff connections in shared care become fulfilling. In this session, you will review the foundations of coaching, look at ways to integrate coaching principles into the interdisciplinary team and clinical work, and take back a plan for developing a coach approach in your context.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review principles for coaching as leadership development
2. Identify how coaching strengthens passion for end-of-life care
3. Integrate coaching as a best practice in clinical care and team support
