Leader as Coach: Developing Others through Effective Coaching, with Marie Peeler
Command and control management styles are dead. (Did they ever work in nonprofit organizations anyway?) To effectively tap the best that their people have to offer, nonprofit leaders must learn more than just how to manage their employees. They must learn to develop them. Coaching is one of the fastest growing and most successful methods used today to help employees grow and develop. Beyond teaching skills, coaching encourages learners to reflect upon and personalize their learning. Coaching helps create resourceful employees by allowing them to design their own solutions with the help and support of their leader. Despite the success and prevalence of coaching, much mystery still surrounds the process. What exactly is coaching? What makes it different from managing? How does a leader do it? What skills are needed? In this webinar, Marie Peeler demystifies coaching for executive directors and other senior nonprofit leaders by sharing: What coaching is and is not - How coaching is different from managing and other activities - The characteristics of successful coaching relationships - When to use coaching and when NOT to use coaching. Most importantly, leaders will learn key skills and techniques necessary to be successful leader-coaches.
