Building a Coaching Culture

A coaching culture is one in which an institution invests in its people so they can grow, thrive, and perform to their full potential, improving how faculty interact with each other, the institution, patients, and the community at large.

How can we cultivate a coaching culture among faculty?

  1. Learn coaching skills and expand your skillset with professional coach training through our UT Southwestern Coach Certificate program (UTSW CCP).

  2. Create a coaching network of leaders and professionals across UT Southwestern.

    Our faculty peer coaches who are participating in the UTSW CCP are available to provide confidential and free coaching to connect with each other in a transformative process that engages faculty in an accountable partnership. Our UTSW CCP graduates use their skills to bring coaching to their local spheres of influence.

What can a coaching culture do for UT Southwestern?

Coaching facilitates growth and fulfillment in faculty’s professional and personal lives through the identification of who they want to be, the ownership of challenges, and the creation of meaningful action plans for success. A coaching culture can improve engagement, align individual purpose, mission, and talents with UT Southwestern’s missions, enhance creativity, innovation, collaboration, and retention of our faculty as they shape the future of our institution.
