SOM to offer Rapid Response Coaching Sessions

Tuesday, April 7, 2020
Trent Semans Center

In an effort to support faculty during this challenging time, the Duke School of Medicine Executive Coaching Program will be offering free Rapid Response Group Coaching Sessions via Zoom for SOM faculty. This service will be provided by the Office for Faculty at no charge. Sessions are open to all SOM faculty members, and you may attend as many (or as few) of these “drop in” coaching sessions as you like between April 1 and May 31. Sessions will be led by Executive Coaches Sharon Hull, MD, MPH, PCC and Jodi Hawes, MD.  One or both of them will attend each session and facilitate the conversations.

Sharon and Jodi will focus on relevant topics during the COVID-19 crisis such as work-life balance, limit setting and caregiving while working from home. They will also ask for your input regarding topics that the group would like addressed.  Participants will be required to maintain confidentiality for those sessions they attend.

Rapid Response Coaching will start next week with the following times. Each session will last roughly 60 minutes.
