Leadership Coaching

Leadership Coaching

Our consultants serve as strategic “thought partners” who coach executive directors, senior staff members, and board members. The ESC coach assists in strategizing about specific management or operational challenges, and acts as a trusted advisor to meet a client’s individual needs. Coaches provide personal support and the benefit of their training and expertise to help the client identify issues, problem solve, and develop new skills, knowledge, and approaches. While often the benefit of executive coaching is the dedicated time for the executive to engage deeply with a thought partner, coaches may also work with a client on any of the following:


  • Leadership and general management skills
  • Relationships with boards, committees, volunteers, and key stakeholders
  • Networking, delegation, and team-building
  • Planning, priority-setting, and time management
  • Supervision and development of subordinates
  • Effective meeting planning
  • Effective oral and written communication
  • Other specific skills as requested (e.g., government relations, finance, human resources, evaluation)
