Coaching Skills: Creating Purposeful Conversations
January 17th, 24th, and 31st: the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is offering “Coaching Skills: Creating Purposeful Conversations”:
“Why Coaching? How we communicate in our teams and organizations is changing. The way we listen, exchange information and make decisions is now, more than ever before, occurring in a virtual setting. And how we communicate is impacted by the uncertainty and challenges of an ongoing pandemic, a heightened awareness of confronting systemic racism, and a growing commitment to racial justice and building inclusivity into our organizational cultures.
Coaching is the ability to approach conversations with skills that engage others. It is an interactive process and experience that builds trust and brings out the best in all of us. “Coaching helps put into practice the idea that the people closest to the problem have the solutions. When we coach each other, we center self-determination, create space for accountability, and unlock each other’s gifts.” (CompassPoint, Oakland, CA)
The series is designed for anyone who works in a nonprofit, educational, or social justice focused organization. In this interactive, skills-practice workshop, you will learn strategies and practical tools for transforming your conversations at every level.
Throughout the three-part series, you will:
- Learn what coaching is and experience why it is so powerful
- Prepare your “coaching mindset”
- Learn and practice key coaching skills
- Leave with a plan to integrate your skills into your work and life
This is a three-part series. Please make sure you can attend all dates before registering: January 17, January 24, and January 31, from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Central each day. The sessions will not be recorded.“
