Using Coaching Skills to Build Staff Leadership

There is an increasing urgency in the nonprofit sector to focus on strengthening and developing talent.  As the baby boomer generation approaches retirement, the Gen X generation consisting of 18 million less people will have difficulty filling the potential leadership demand.  One approach gaining momentum is to shift from a more traditional management model to a shared leadership framework.  Using a coaching approach fosters leadership at all levels of the organization and builds a foundation for leadership succession within the organization.  Participants in this seminar will learn a variety of core principles of leadership and foundational coaching skills.  Participants will also have the opportunity to put these skills into practice through interactive exercises.

Office hours will be available for 1:1 coaching on November 28.
