Event description

Description

Being a nonprofit manager isn’t just about supervising your employees; it also requires being a leader who helps the people around them grow, learn, and reach their full potential.

This highly interactive skills-building workshop is based on presenter Michelle Gislason’s acclaimed book “Coaching Skills for Nonprofit Managers and Leaders” and its principles.

Michelle will introduce you to a coaching-focused model of management that creates a culture of discipline and accountability while empowering others to be even more responsible, accountable, and self-motivated. Then, she discusses the four foundational coaching skills (inquiry, listening, feedback, sharing) and how this framework produces optimal coaching conversations with colleagues. There will also be time for practicing these skills with peers.

Learning Objectives

• Understand what coaching is and how to use it in the context of leadership and management
• Explore foundational coaching skills
• Learn a coaching framework to enhance developmental conversations
• Practice coaching
