Online Learning

Evidence-based communication skills and coaching strategies that have been shown to positively impact behavior change are taught in twelve weekly sessions. Interactions with other students in the virtual classroom through discussions, watching videos, and sharing coaching resources make up the core foundation of this comprehensive training.

100% virtual format allows you to do all of the training from your own location. Synchronous sessions, and the attendance-mandatory four day immersive experience are held in the Central Standard Time Zone. 

Webinars & Calls

Weekly live interactive webinars provide further opportunity to interact with Mayo faculty, ask questions, and learn practical coaching skills. It is important to note that these interactions are required parts of the course, and are offered in Central Time (CT).

Peer Coaching

Opportunities to practice and receive feedback on your developing coaching skills are essential. For multiple weeks during the course, you will meet in peer coaching dyads, triads or private sessions with mentor involvement, using distance communication technology, to complete practice coaching assignments.  

Four-Day Virtual Training

This workshop includes many experiential elements such as motivational interviewing training, resiliency training, breakaway sessions and more. Immersive dates for sessions can be found on the Registration page. Live attendance is mandatory and required and takes place in the Central Standard Time Zone.
