We work with caregiving professionals to live by design, not default.

The Institute for Deliberate Practice is a group of teachers, coaches, and speakers dedicated to empowering caregiving professionals. We believe that in order to properly care for others, one must first take care of themselves. By utilizing a comprehensive approach and methodology we give our students the tools they need to unlock their full potential, both professionally and personally.  

Our team is led by Vickie Mudra who has produced results and facilitated positive changes for countless individuals and organizations. Now, she wants to spread her message of ultimate potential through deliberate living by offering corporate training events, private speakers, one-on-one training, and ICF coaching certification classes.

Using the Deliberate CARE Model, we will teach you or your staff how to appreciate their surroundings and peers, transcend their usual frame of mind, and balance all aspects of their lives. This will lead to greater focus, teamwork, and patient care in the workplace.


You are your next step. And your next step is your decision.

Connect to why you are here. It’s time to inspire and be inspired in the care you give.
