Click here to register for "Passive to Partner: Integrative Health Coach Training Using Motivational Interviewing for Behavior Change," a December 18, 2008 webinar.

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.

During A Health Coach Hiring Game Plan That Yields Improved Outcomes, a 90-minute webinar on November 19, 2008, now available as an archive version, explores hiring and training practices for health coaching that reflect developments in the field. Hear 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.

Mirroring a shift in primary care, health coaching has shifted from a traditional education approach to an integrative approach that features a reliance on motivational interviewing (MI) [a client-centered counseling approach developed in part by Professor William R. Miller, Ph.D. and Professor Stephen Rollnick, Ph.D.], self-management techniques and even alternative and complementary approaches to elicit complex behavior change, such as that required by individuals with multiple health risks.

While traditional education is appropriate for acute, short-term conditions, this whole person approach elevates the member from a passive recipient of information to an active collaborator in the coaching process.

During Passive to Partner: Integrative Health Coach Training Using Motivational Interviewing for Behavior Change, a 90-minute webinar on December 18, 2008, now available as an archive version, health coaching experts examined integrative health coaching -- how health coaches can benefit from training in MI, self-management and even spirituality and healing. You'll hear from Dr. Karen Lawson, program director for the health coaching track at the Center for Spirituality and Healing, the University of Minnesota and Dr. Ruth Wolever, clinical health psychologist and director of research at Duke Integrative Medicine, on:

  • Describe motivational interviewing (MI) skills to improve health coaching outcomes;
  • Describe ways for coaches to assess a client's readiness to change and to apply an understanding from the stages of change;
  • Describe how the motivational interviewing skills provide a foundational framework for an appropriate health coaching interaction;
  • Identify examples of motivational interviewing in practice.
