8 Week Group Coaching Program for Non Profit EDs and Senior Managers

What is Coaching? Tim Gallwey in the book, The Inner Game of Tennis, defines coaching as: " Unlocking a person's potential to maximize his or her own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them".



What is the "Relief for Stressed Out NPO Leaders Group Coaching Program"?

Joan Roberts a trainer and coach to the non-profit and government sectors, has created a revolutionary 8 Step group coaching process to bring relief to stressed out Non Profit Organization leaders. The process is unlike traditional training programs because it works from the inside out and focuses on the needs of the whole person instead of just building skills and new knowledge. Coaching assists leaders in leading themselves first … so that others are inspired to follow. The coaching process helps you get back into the driver’s seat of your own life and connect with your own inner resources. Not only will you receive professional advice from the coach and a workbook full of tools that you compete at your own pace, but you'll also learn from your colleagues. The group provides a high level of interaction and feedback so possibilities expand to new levels by having multiple perspectives to draw from. The program is designed to help EDs and senior managers thrive in the chaotic non-profit workplace. Private executive coaching sessions cost upwards to $400 an hour. Group coaching is a low cost alternative that is oriented towards peer support and the unique challenges facing executive directors and senior managers of non-profit organizations.
