Management Skills Coaching

Project Details

What We Need
  • Initial assessment of areas of strength, targets for improvement and specific areas of focus desired for the coaching sessions
  • Up to 6 coaching sessions exploring areas such as motivation, empowerment, collaboration, communication, giving / receiving feedback & conflict management
  • Wrap-up session with actionable steps and advice moving forward as a manager
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have na, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have na, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,248 , allowing us to use the money to continue growing into other districts and reaching more students who are at risk of not graduating.

I am currently the site coordinator, whichis essentially the manager over the other 7 employees for our non profit. I started out as a basic coordinator, and received this position last year so it is difficult at times to be assertive when there are others who were hired before me. We are also growing into other areas and we want to continue with excellence even with 10+employees
