Project Details

What We Need
  • Personalized feedback and up to 5 coaching sessions with one member of the Organization
  • Document outlining strengths, weaknesses, and suggested next steps and/or resources for the member
Additional Details

I'm seeking support around communicating in a concise and engaging manner. I often lead trainings and speak on panels, both personally as well as on behalf of my organization. At times I worry that my explanations are too thorough and longer than needed, and I'd love some help in developing a clear, succinct approach.

What We Have In Place
  • I have sample trainings we offer, and time to dedicate to this project to define clear goals and a timeline.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,660 , allowing us to deepen our bench of qualified representatives, in order to build new partnerships and increase public awareness of our work.

We want to deepen our bench of team members who can represent Power of Two externally. This project will support that objective by training a Borough Director -- who is often in public-facing meetings, trainings, and panels -- to become a more effective communicator.

Our Mission

Power of Two addresses intergenerational poverty and trauma at its root by using the Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up (ABC) model, an evidence-based, in-home, parenting program that promotes responsive parenting as a way to mitigate the negative effects of toxic stress in caregivers and children, creating a strong foundation for parents to build resilience and for children to thrive academically, physically and emotionally.
