Session Description
Coaching differs from mentoring in that the focus is on performance in a particular set of skills. As in sports coaching, coaches need not be an expert in the task, but do need to understand what it takes to perform at the highest level. Fellows can benefit from coaching focused either on one-time events, or a series of interrelated tasks, like finding a mentor and developing a career plan. This session will highlight coachable opportunities in PCCM training and guide participants through an interactive process of needs assessment and program design.

Session Objectives
1. At the end of this session, participants will differentiate between mentorship and coaching, and evaluate the strengths and limitations of each approach.
2. Participants will evaluate the goals, objectives, and resources required for different applications of coaching models.
3. Participants will design a coaching intervention targeted at a program need. Groups will brainstorm coachable needs and develop a coaching approach that they will present to the larger group for feedback.
