Online Learning

Evidence-based communication skills and coaching strategies that have been shown to positively impact behavior change are taught in eleven 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.

Online classes allow you to do the majority of the training from your own location, in your own time.

Webinars & Calls

Four live webinars and one conference call 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 6 weeks during the course you will meet in peer coaching dyads or triads, using the distance communication technology of your choice, to complete practice coaching assignments.  Three calls allow you to practice independently, and three calls are mentored by Mayo Clinic faculty to maximize the learning of skills.

Onsite Training

A four-day immersive wellness experience at the state-of-the-art Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program led by an array of Mayo Clinic experts that provides opportunities to practice foundation coaching skills in a safe and supportive environment. This workshop includes many experiential elements such as motivational interviewing training, resiliency training, cooking demonstrations, and opportunities to utilize the stunning new workout and spa facilities. Healthy meals and snacks are included in the onsite training experience.

Certification

Graduates of the Mayo Clinic Wellness Coach Training Program are eligible to apply for the Mayo Clinic Wellness Coach Certification (at no additional charge). They are also encouraged to pursue the national wellness coach certification through the International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaching.
