At Evangelical Community Hospital, we found the Engagement Excelerator Virtual Coaching Program to be just the right resource to help our management team step up its engagement focus heading into our biannual engagement survey period. The thought-provoking and action-oriented weekly emails kept engagement top of mind amidst the busyness of healthcare. We saw our organization wide engagement results increase almost 6 percentage points and we know that Vicki’s virtual coaching helped fuel that positive “excel”eration!

When I first looked at the Engagement Excelerator Virtual Coaching Program, it was an easy decision financially. For the small investment, we have 135 nursing leaders getting 6 months worth of eduction in a drip format that is very effective. For the same amount of money, we could have sent 2 nurse leaders to a conference. What’s even better is the results we are seeing from the leaders who are participating exceeded our expectations. They are using terminology and tools from the coaching program as a part of their daily leadership work. We are at our most engaged levels with higher retention and very engaged charge nurses. I highly recommend the program to other nursing leaders who want to improve engagement.”

Most organizations lack strategic focus?
Most leaders don't know what to do day-in and day-out?
Most employees lack the tools to stay engaged?
Imagine if there was a way to permanently make engagement part of your culture and see improvement year after year.
You don't have to imagine it, it's here!
The Engagement Excelerator Virtual Coaching Program takes you from big picture strategy to real-world tactics to jaw-dropping results.

Sample Segments - Turnkey Ideas and Tools
Here's what healthcare leaders who are using the coaching program have to say...
I enjoy the repeatability of the modules and the time of each episode (~5 minutes each). It keeps me reminded of important items and to remain engaged in positive action towards my team engagement.
The program is doing many things that are beneficial to me: 1) Accountability; 2) Keeping me and my team focused on our action plan; 3) New ideas - every episode gives me more ideas and energy to keep moving forward on our action items.
I have used the ideas to improve my rounding as well as one on one meetings with my staff; my rounding is not intentional and purposeful...I have found this very helpful.
