These services combine our coaches’ consultative areas of expertise to evaluate and coach professionals who are at-risk for or engaging in ethical or interpersonal misconduct, or are attitudinally disengaged from their responsibilities. Typical areas of difficulty include: reliability in meeting responsibilities, practicing self-improvement with a positive attitude, effective and respectful communication, anger and conflict management, respecting boundaries and roles, and practicing integrity, honesty, responsibility and emotional intelligence within a team environment or complex system.
Professional-At-Risk services are particularly appropriate when successful behavioral professionalism in the work environment is the shared commitment of both the organization and the referred professional. While professionals are welcome to self-enroll, the process typically involves referral and information from employers or organizations that need a responsive and accurate assessment and plan, for professionalism concerns.
We specialize in evaluating those in the helping professions, including health care, law, ministry, counseling, social work, education and higher education, and any profession that prioritizes a humanistic and service mission.
When needed, this intensive 2-day evaluation provides a thorough investigation and report of complex presenting behaviors in preparation for a strategic intervention.
The process involves a full review of all provided concerns and documentation, two 90-120 minute interviews, a half-day of standardized personality, strengths and aptitude testing with expert interpretation, and a summary report of findings and recommendations. We limit the scope of these evaluations to our coaching specialization, helping organizations and professionals identify and understand the problematic attitudes and behavior.
These are not medical fitness for duty evaluations, nor should they be considered an approximation or substitute for medical evaluations and care, although we often work alongside external medical providers when the behaviors are influenced by medical conditions and organizations need assistance in focusing on the behavioral impact in the workplace.
Fee Schedule: $360/hour, plus a flat fee of $2000 for the administration and interpretation of personality and aptitude assessments customized to the presenting concern.
Professionals who have completed our At-Risk Evaluation or who already have a clear and shared understanding and plan for where they are ready for growth, positive change, and accountability in re-building professionalism, are eligible to enroll in our Advocacy Track Coaching.
This service provides highly specialized coaching towards understanding and modifying disruptive behaviors, ethical misconduct, anger management, hostile workplace behaviors, disengagement, or other problems with professionalism that threaten success in organizations or status with boards and licensing bodies.
We draw upon our areas of expertise in ethics, professionalism, emotional intelligence, and communication to coach and teach these clients, including the option of incorporating Virtue Medicine’s specialty ethics and professionalism teaching modules. Active listening, direct questions, and accountability to the coach and the organization are used to support the professional towards the needed goals, growth, and change.
Fee Schedule: To support committed change, our Advocacy Track clients have a mandatory enrollment in a contract period of 6 ($1000) or 12 ($1800) months, with an hourly coaching charge of $360/hour. We work with supervisors or supervisory bodies, within the limits of ethical standards of privacy in coaching, to help achieve and maintain the professional’s success in the workplace.
Organizations that wish to explore how any of our Professionalism Programs are best customized to their resources and needs are invited to schedule a consultation, which includes up to 30 minutes of consultative work with one of our coaches, for a single fee of $200.
We also offer open-ended consultation for organizations or departments who find our ongoing availability to be helpful to their leadership team, with discounts for yearly contracts. Corporate non-disclosure agreements are willingly signed if requested, and we follow the ethical standards of the International Coaching Federation for all of our organizational coaching work.
