Leadership development can mean a lot of different things — from MBA-style programs and sabbaticals for executives to classroom training and wilderness outings for current and future leaders.
Coaching, which the business sector has long viewed as a way to support current and emerging leaders, is just beginning to take hold in the nonprofit world as a core leadership development activity.
The Coaching and Philanthropy Project put together an Coaching and Philanthropy: An Action Guide for Nonprofits to help organisations in our sector to make informed decisions about how and when to use coaching.
This fabulous guide, written for the US market, is just as useful and relevant for Australian organisations.
It provides tips and answers to help you figure out if coaching is right for you, how to assess a coach, and how to make the case for getting support.
