“Leader as Coach” Training 

A “coach approach” to leadership is regarded as the most powerful model for today’s leaders. This award winning 1-day training program is for organizations that want to support high performance through a leadership culture that is more collaborative and engages employees more fully. And it is for leaders and managers who want to be more effective at achieving results through people. Our partnership with Adler Learning USA, which offers a globally respected ICF accredited coach training program, provides nonprofit leaders access to one of the most effective and flexible coaching models available.

Internal Leadership Development Programs

In addition to offering public leadership development programs, we develop and implement similar internal leadership development programs for existing and emerging leaders that are customized to meet an organization’s or coalition’s needs. These internal programs provide leaders within a specific organization the opportunity to transform themselves and enhance their impact.

Coaching Services

Expert resources are available through our network of highly-skilled, credentialed coaches. Coaches hold individual leaders creative, resourceful and whole, to identify  and implement strategies that best support themselves and their organizations.
