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 their peers coach primarily through asking open-ended questions to expand the member’s thinking. 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.
· 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
Peer Coaching groups will be customized with no more than 8 people per group.
Groups will form based on the information provided during registration questions.
Each coaching session will last 2.5 hours.
Groups will meet for 7 sessions (1 Meet and Greet + 6 sessions) and this expands over 6-8 months. Each group is facilitated by a Trained Cognitive Coach. Participation cost is $600/person.

At the heart of your nonprofit organization is a unique, driving story that can transform your fund development, board recruitment, talent retention, volunteer management, and relationship to the community. Do you know your story and how to communicate it well at all levels, both internally and externally?
Whether embarking on a capital campaign or raising funds for your annual campaign, EVERY nonprofit should have a case for support (CFS). Your Case For Support provides your organization’s mission and history. It communicates the community need and how your organization responds to the need. And it presents the vision for the future and how the gifts of current and prospective donors create hope for the future.
The CFS is the foundation of all of your donor focused communications and is a valuable tool not only for anyone who is helping raise money for your organization, but also for any current or prospective donors as well.
This two and a half workshop is designed to help participants understand the CFS’s role in telling your organization’s story and why it is essential for successful fundraising.
Goals will include the following:
The session will provide beginner communication and fundraising staff guidelines for producing a strong CFS and as a refresher for more seasoned staff charged with developing a CFS.
