Message from the Director

It’s fall and the campus is abuzz with new students and faculty. Our coaching program and MS degree programs are also humming with new students and faculty. As predicted in the last newsletter, our fall coaching cohort is our largest yet with 42 students. Furthermore, we had many additional applicants to whom we were able to make our spring cohort available.

Our MS degree program with a concentration in Healthcare Organization Leadership is now being delivered to a new client organization: Texas Health Resources (THR). THR is one of the largest healthcare systems in the DFW area. We are proud to offer our educational excellence to that organization. I know this newsletter is focused on coaching, but I wanted to mention this program as well, because it demonstrates our commitment to excellence and is also a validation of our success in branching out into new areas.

Thanks to our entire faculty, coaching and otherwise, and to our excellent students who make this the best program of its kind in the country (IMHO).

That’s it for now. We welcome your comments and suggestions for future articles.

Best regards,
Robert Hicks, PhD
Clinical Professor
Director, Organizational Behavior & Coaching Program
