“Coaching in Non-Profits: Your Mission Awaits-Panel Discussion”
SPEAKER: Renay Dossman, President-Neighborhood Development Center | CPCC
DATE: Tuesday August 24, 2021
TIME: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CST
An interactive panel discussion focused on the impact and need for coaching in non-profit organizations. Coaching services for the non-profit professional remain scarce. When and if a non-profit organization receives an increase in donations or other external funding, such resources usually go directly to programs for their often, underestimated clients.
While appreciating the benefits of staff development and employee self-care, non-profits often cannot afford the additional resources it takes to offer training internally to their employees and volunteers. The non-profit space is experiencing an awaking to the power of coaching. Through partnerships and expansion within grants, offering hybrid solutions, can be the key to unlocking coaching in a powerful way to make a difference.
ICF Core Competencies Addressed:
- #2 Embodies a Coaching Mindset
- #8 Creating Awareness
- Learn how to engage with a diverse and unique client pool
- Understand the paradigm shift on what and how coaching avenues are changing within the non-profit world
- Understand how to use your gifts/skills in alignment with a mission that you have a passion for.
- The potential to create a ripple effect within unity
