Coaching and Leadership

Here at Collaborative Leadership Group, our hearts are with the Executive Directors.  Why?  Because we have been there.  We truly understand the ins and outs of running a nonprofit in good economic times as well as extremely challenging times.


“With respect to their own development as leaders, executives reported employing a range of strategies to keep learning and access support. Of all professional development strategies utilized, executives were most likely to rate executive coaching, peer networks, and leadership programs as very effective. All three of these strategies include non-didactic elements—an opportunity for skilled executives to grapple with the universal challenges of their roles and reflect on their own leadership practices in a safe environment. Engagement with peers—whether formally constituted or informally convened—was frequently mentioned as an effective way to mitigate feelings of isolation and to develop personal leadership skills.”  Daring to Lead 2011 (

Sometimes an Executive Director needs someone to listen without judgement as they verbally sort through ideas, challenges and issues.  Other times they need a voice of clarity, above the fray and beyond the walls of politics.  What about creating a path for yourself?  Where exactly do you want to be in ten years?

Working together we will develop a path to embark on together.  All communication is strictly confidential between the direct client and CLG.


Everyone is a leader, many times you just don’t know it.
