Program Description

The key to success for any health coaching program is the health coaches themselves. Coaches need to have the appropriate skills to achieve the desired behavior change among their caseload.

Listen to pre-conference comments from Darcy Hurlbert and Sean Slovenski.

During A Health Coach Hiring and Training Game Plan That Yields Improved Outcomes, a 90-minute webinar on CD-ROM, via On Demand Web access or as a recorded webinar on DVD, we explored hiring and training practices for health coaching that reflect developments in the field.

Key Learning Points

We heard from coaching industry veterans Darcy Hurlbert, health and wellness product specialist, Ceridian Lifeworks, and Sean Slovenski, CEO and president of Hummingbird Coaching, on

  • Determining the appropriate skill sets for health coaches;
  • Analyzing the pros and cons of various certifications, education and background experience for effective coaches;
  • Accounting for hiring differences for online, in-person or telephonic health coaches;
  • Employing interviewing techniques that uncover the skill sets you need;
  • Learning from past hiring experiences what makes a good hire; and
  • The most important factors to consider in the hiring process.

Here's what participants said about the live program:

"Darcy Hurlbert and Sean Slovenski shared valuable insight and experiences," said Sheree Coats manager, health coaching at Clarian Health.
