I Want to Build a Stronger Board

Nonprofit board members are stewards of the organization and have legal responsibilities to ensure that the organization is sustainable through sound ethical, legal and responsible governance.  

Building a strong board takes time, commitment to your mission and a strong recruitment and orientation plan.

    Peer Coaching Groups - Overview

    Peer Coaching Groups are designed to facilitate goal-setting, coaching and action learning within a small group of peers. Each group member decides what real-world goal or issue they wish to address, and guided by a facilitator their peers will coach primarily through asking open-ended questions to expand the member’s thinking and options

    Members commit to taking action between meetings and report on progress and lessons learned. Peer Coaching Groups follow a very structured process that ensures that members work on issues that matter most, get help the way they need it and apply what they have learned.

    The Benefits

    • In addition to being coached, members develop core coaching skills
    • Through open-ended questions and limited advice, members are able to tap their own knowledge and that of their peers
    • Members work on real challenges or goals – the things that matter most here and now
    • Members make new connections, receive feedback and gain new perspectives
    • Members are accountable to take action, so they learn by doing and following through.

     How This Works*

    Peer Coaching groups will be customized with no more than 8 people per group. However a minimum of 6 is required to be the most beneficial so the start date will vary until we have the minimum of perfect peers. 

    Groups will then form as we identify participants that will form a cohesive group. Please complete our "Peer Coaching Group Interest" Form HERE  Reserve your spot today!

    After informal phone interviews with each of you and a group is established coaching sessions will meet monthly and will last 2 - 2.5 hours. Groups will meet for 7 online sessions (1 meet and greet + 6 coaching sessions) and this will expand over 6-8 months with each group facilitated by a Trained Cognitive Coach. 

    Participation cost is $625 for NN members and $725 for non-members. Billing will occur once a start date has been established and confirmed with each group.
