Get Certified as a Healthcare Leadership Coach with the Center for Executive Coaching

Built on a foundation of over 20 years of experience with healthcare leaders.

A proven program to coach healthcare leaders through their most pressing challenges and get significant results.

Health care is the most difficult, chaotic, and complex industry to manage today.”

– Peter Drucker

If you are involved with healthcare organizations, you certainly don’t need us to tell you about the massive challenges that leaders in healthcare face, and the list keeps growing. As one CEO of a prominent healthcare system shared with us, “Healthcare is in a mess, and it gets worse every day.”

For this reason, demand continues to grow for coaching healthcare leaders and up-and-coming talent through these challenges. You can meet the rising demand by getting certified with the Center for Executive Coaching’s Healthcare Leadership Coach Training and Certification Program.

Following are the details….

Prerequisite: The mission of this program is to create a cohort of the top healthcare coaching professionals in the field — whether you are/want to be an external coach, internal coach, or a healthcare leader using coaching skills to improve results. Therefore, this program is only open to seasoned healthcare clinicians, leaders, managers, and consultants with significant healthcare expertise and experience. Contact us if you have any questions about whether you meet this requirement.



  • Make a massive difference in an industry that desperately needs the kind of support that leadership coaches can offer.
  • Equip yourself with processes and methods to address the specific challenges that healthcare leaders face, and help them achieve success for their teams, for their organization and the communities/patients they serve, and in their own careers.
  • Stand out as a leading professional in the healthcare leadership and executive coaching space.
  • Join an exclusive network of top healthcare professionals for sharing ideas, supporting one another and forming alliances to serve clients.
  • Enjoy personalized one-on-one support whenever needed.
  • Join anytime. We will welcome you to a cohort of fantastic like-minded professionals and get you started.
  • Convenient: Learn at your own pace via your member area and/or join live monthly 90-minute webinars to review the content and network with your cohort.
  • For external coaches: Be equipped with the tools and methods needed to set yourself apart and serve clients in the healthcare space.
  • For internal coaches and leaders: Have measurable impact on your organization’s strategic initiatives, performance, and culture — and your own career.

  • Led by the Center for Executive Coaching, a leading ICF- accredited executive and leadership coach training organization.


Features and What You Receive:

  • Methodologies include: working with the disruptive physician, grooming a nurse manager for an executive position, supporting the new physician administrator to succeed in a new role, coaching leaders of a change initiative that is stalled; coaching to enable a successful performance improvement initiative; coaching clients to have an effective high-stakes/influence conversation; coaching to resolve conflict; coaching on overwhelm/juggling too many priorities; coaching the nurse manager (including a detailed competency assessment that has been proven to help nurse managers improve their leadership); and coaching high-potential leaders in a healthcare setting.
  • Foundational instruction about best-practice coaching conversations, the coaching process and setting up successful engagements, and assessing the client and situation before the coaching begins.
  • Monthly live 90-minute webinars allow you and your cohort to discuss case studies and practice coaching, form alliances, and support one another – including in small breakout sessions. You will connect with a powerful group of like-minded professionals, and so the opportunities are enormous.
  • Self-paced video instruction, transcripts of the videos, and slide decks walking you through each coaching situation and methodology in step-by-step fashion.

This includes ongoing support and review of your marketing materials and plan.
  • Second special bonus on request: You receive a best-in-class, highly validated and reliable leadership assessment — proven to get results in healthcare settings — to take for yourself to see how data can make a big difference in coaching healthcare leaders, as well as how to use data as part of your coaching.



$2,500. You can pay up front and save $50, or pay in five convenient monthly installments of $500 each. For external coaches, a single engagement using just one of the methodologies in this program will more than pay back your investment. For internal coaches and leaders, your return will be achieved through the measurable, positive impact you have on your organization’s strategic initiatives, improved quality and productivity outcomes, culture — and on your own career development and advancement.

That way, you set yourself apart as a true expert. We support work with you throughout this process, to support your success.
