About the Role

The Gobel Group seeks a GRACE Educator to be a lead trainer of Gobel’s groundbreaking program, GRACE. GRACE teaches GRAtitude, Compassion, and Empathy to healthcare professionals. It was created on evidence-based research to help clinical and administrative staff strengthen patient interaction, build greater compassion and empathy, and recognize how patients and families express gratitude. The program has been developed between Gobel Group and world-leading academicians David Victorson, Ph.D. and Robert Emmons, Ph.D.

The GRACE curriculum is taught over a two-hour period and requires a knowledge of, or willingness to learn about healthcare systems/services, scientific research studies focused on gratitude, compassion, and empathy, and guiding healthcare professionals through meditations and reflections focused on the curriculum. Mindfulness is the lens for looking at each component of the GRACE program, and it is critical for the GRACE Educator to have experience and comfort with leading meditations as well as a strong understanding of the benefits of practicing mindfulness. GRACE is designed to improve health care employees’ wellbeing and satisfaction, increase HCAHPS scores, and increase grateful patient and family referrals.
