Using an executive coach to help focus and improve a leader’s capacity to move people and themselves toward the accomplishment of a goal or organizational mission has long been recognized as a powerful tool. For 21 years, Fieldstone has offered coaching to nonprofit executives eager to have an experienced leader on his or her agenda, to provide new perspective, to bounce ideas off and to work toward a desired outcome.
The Fieldstone Coaching Program is a year-long experience that pairs nonprofit executives, one of whom has been trained as a consultative peer coach, in a confidential relationship. In a series of monthly meetings and conversations, coaches help to empower coachees to accomplish professional leadership goals and resolve organizational issues. A 360 Degree Review from the Center for Creative Leadership is included in the program, as is time with a certified feedback consultant so the Coachee can properly interpret the tool’s results.
Coaching begins each January and concludes in December. Applications are now being accepted for consideration for the 2018 program. Once the application is received, a formal interview will be conducted on the phone, to gain more insights into the coachees goals and desires for the coaching relationship. This is an important step in making the “right” coaching match. Matches are announced in December each year. The cost of the program is $350 and applications can be found on our website. As this is a very popular and cost effective program, those interested are encouraged to apply early to ensure space is available.
