  • WHERE WE LIVE

    The Institute of Coaching (IOC) is based at McLean Hospital. Founded in 1811, McLean is the top freestanding psychiatric hospital in the U.S., a member of Mass General Brigham, and the largest psychiatric affiliate of Harvard Medical School.

  • OUR IMPACT? WELL-BEING

    By bringing a strong scientific foundation to the practice of coaching, the IOC is making a large, global impact on the collective well-being of individuals, leaders, teams, organizations and communities.

  • OUR HISTORY

    The formation of the Institute of Coaching (2009) began with a $2 million donation from the Harnisch Foundation, followed by the creation of our global IOC community of 5,000+ members in 75 countries.

    The global IOC community emerged from our 14 Coaching in Leadership and Healthcare conferences delivered since 2008 as a collaboration of the Institute of Coaching, McLean, and Harvard Medical School.
