Description

Executive Coaching Program

In organizations of all sizes, executive leaders often struggle to find the support and camaraderie they need to do their best work. It’s lonely at the top. But it doesn’t have to be.

At the Johnson Center, our small-group Executive Coaching Program brings together a cohort of leaders from different backgrounds and experience levels to forge a professional support network that lasts well beyond our final session. By learning with — and from — each other over the course of seven weeks, we find new ways to tackle intractable challenges within our organizations and embrace our own professional development.

Participants commit to meeting once a week for seven weeks. During our two-and-a-half-hour sessions, we’ll dig into the theories, best practices, and dialogues that can enrich and enhance your role. Each session’s exercises and conversations will be guided by the group’s specific needs, experiences, and challenges. And throughout the program, your curriculum will be facilitated by a certified coach, Tamela Spicer, who brings a wealth of experience in the nonprofit sector to her role as your guide.

The 2010 study “Coaching and Philanthropy” — from Grantmakers for Effective Organizations, BTW Informing Change, Leadership that Works, and CompassPoint Nonprofit Services — demonstrated that executive coaching can help nonprofit leaders gain greater self-awareness, increase their professional confidence, and provide a clearer understanding of roles, resources, and how to approach leadership challenges. By providing a safe space for reflection, guidance, and self-directed learning, the Johnson Center’s Executive Coaching program can help you embrace your leadership with confidence and support.
