Adding Coaching Skills to Your Toolkit

As a non-profit leader, you need to excel at frontline work and managing your team. Often it feels like you are squeezed between these competing priorities. Coaching is now well established as one of the most important competencies for maximizing and sustaining individual and team performance. The return on investment is well documented with major improvements in employee morale, effectiveness, and retention.

During this workshop, we will explore the distinctions between the roles of leader, manager, and coach. We will introduce the concept of 3 levels of listening and explore powerful questions.  During the workshop, you will have an opportunity to learn and practice these coaching skills.

  • Take your listening skills to the next level
