Project Details

What We Need
  • 6-8 coaching sessions with a staff member
  • Actionable steps and advice to address an ongoing managerial issue
  • Assessment of the effectiveness of the Organization's leadership team
Additional Details

I began my first job as an Executive Director in January, following the previous ED's passing (no overlap) and immediately preceding the pandemic. I have worked in managerial positions before, but never at this level or in this context. While we have many plans and I have an understanding Board, I face some "leadership skill"-based challenges (such as effectively communicating strategy & goals). I want to communicate better so that I can step back from "just doing it myself" out of frustration.

What We Have In Place
  • I am willing to provide any information that will make this coaching more successful. Especially in light of the pandemic and remote working, I can see that I need to strengthen my leadership skills (especially communication and delegation). I do not want to micromanage my small team, but am starting to see that I often "take over" projects that are not completed to my specs. I believe that training my team will be an important piece of this, but I think that training needs to start with me.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,198 , allowing us to better develop our programs and focus on strengthening our team.

As the Director, I need to be a strong leader in order to effectively shape our programs and keep The Arts Center strong, especially now. We provide important resources to our community, and I need to be able to communicate the impact of our work.

Project Plan
