Coach Corner

A core expectation of the program is participating in monthly coaching to advance the progress of your projects. Denise Armstorff is the coach for all PHASE teams.

Denise has worked for over 30 years in the healthcare industry and in the arena of performance improvement since 2008.

How coaching will support you:

  • More intensive approach, focusing on building your QI capabilities in your organizations
  • Helps us keep a better pulse on where additional needs might be – which we will build into our curriculum in response (in person LS, S&L Webinars, etc.)
