Institute of Coaching

In addition to the work at Wellcoaches to educate, train, and support the best health and wellness coaches, we provide leadership and resources to the Institute of Coaching and its annual Coaching in Leadership & Healthcare conference offered by Harvard Medical School. The annual conference serves leaders, physicians, healthcare providers, executive coaches, life coaches and health and wellness coaches. The Institute of Coaching offers a membership program to allow coaches to access a treasure trove of learning materials on the translation of science to coaching practice in the areas of leadership, health & wellness, positive psychology, and executive coaching. Wellcoaches coaches receive a generous membership discount.


National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching

In 2010, co-founded and co-led by Wellcoaches CEO, Margaret Moore, the National Consortium for Credentialing of Health and Wellness Coaches (NCCHWC) formed to build minimum standards and legitimacy for the role of health and wellness coaches. NCCHWC evolved to become the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) and launched the first national board certification for health and wellness coaches in 2017. The Wellcoaches Core Coach Training & Certification Program is an approved program by the NBHWC as a prerequisite for the NBC-HWC, national board certified health and wellness coach.

The ILM advocates for changes in our healthcare system by empowering clinicians to facilitate behavior change and stimulate a culture of health and wellness for their patients.

The ILM offers live and online courses to provide the knowledge, skills, and tools for healthcare professionals to effectively and efficiently promote healthy lifestyle changes in their patients.
