Using Coaching: with People who are Dying or Grieving

Coaching conversations are a way of caring for people who are dying or grieving which recognises them as the expert on their own experience.  Through powerful questions that help draw them out and deep listening of whatever they share, we can create an even safer place where they can express their normal feelings.  Transformation occurs not by telling them how they should act or feel, but by walking with them where they are.

Don Eisenhauer has worked, taught and written extensively in the area of end of life care.  Now that the basics of coaching have been learned, you can join Don for 8 hours focused on Coaching at End of Life, where you will learn:


“I was skeptical about End of Life Coaching until I went through it. Coaches help Microphone connectedothers bring the best of themselves to the table in whatever circumstances. Why not help the dying or the bereaved do the same in the wilderness of loss? As a hospital Chaplain, I have found the principles of End of Life Coaching to be vital disciplines often employed with the dying and their families.” Chaplain

“Coaching the End of Life was an eye opener. The content was practical and not formulaic. We were challenged to go beyond the excellent case studies class and use coaching with those actually facing the end of life. I was led to face some false assumptions about the realities of impending death and how it can be received with an internal as well as eternal healing. I’d make it required training.”
