Professional leadership coaching is becoming increasingly familiar to—if not yet commonly used in—the nonprofit sector. While some very small organizations may indeed not be able to afford leadership coaching, many more nonprofits may decline to use coaching mainly out of uncertainty about whether coaching is really an investment that meets their needs. This webinar answers such questions as: What is coaching, particularly leadership coaching, really like? How exactly does it benefit the client? When is coaching an effective approach to enhancing leadership capabilities? What criteria should we look for in a coach? How do we ensure our organization gets the maximum benefit from leadership coaching?
Intended outcomes of the webinar include:
- Understanding of the nature of professional coaching, particularly focused on leadership effectiveness.
- Clarity regarding the distinctions between coaching and other techniques and approaches for leadership development.
- Guidelines for evaluating an organization’s readiness for leadership coaching and for selecting the right coach.
