Academics Batten X Coaching for Success: How Social-Impact Leaders Bring Out the Best in Their People Coaching for Success: How Social-Impact Leaders Bring Out the Best in Their People May 12-13, 2022 Alumni Hall at the University of Virginia Program Overview Leaders within nonprofit organizations experience unique challenges when it comes to developing people and building community. Technical expertise and content knowledge matter, but excellence in developing people allows nonprofit leaders to build inclusive, healthy and sustainable organizations and programs. Research indicates that a critical competency separating highly effective managers and leaders from the rest of the pack is the effective coaching of their employees. Yet, leaders and managers often lament that they do not feel equipped to effectively coach and develop their people. “Coaching for Success,” an intensive two-day workshop hosted in partnership with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence, will set nonprofit leaders on the path to establishing the core coaching competencies that are most effective in developing people and achieving organizational objectives. Join us in Charlottesville on May 12, 2022, from 9:00AM-4:00PM and May 13, 2022, from 9:00AM-1:00PM. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days. Impact & Outcomes Anyone who manages people within a nonprofit setting will benefit from this workshop.
