ESCC provides a variety of coaching services to individuals, groups and organizations. ESCC coaches are carefully matched with leaders based on their needs, interest, and personal styles.
Benefits of coaching include
- Having a sounding board to test ideas within a supportive, confidential environment
- Accountability to focus and stay on task
- Creation and implementation of personal and organizational development plan
The most common reasons we are requested to provide management coaching are
- Defining or improving relationships between the Board and Staff
- Assistance with strategic issues
- Help exploring organizational issues
Individual Coaching – One-on-one coaching is offered to executive directors, board leaders and senior and middle management. Individual coaching may be contracted as a stand-alone project or as part of a larger project with your organization.
All participants in EXCEL, a program of the Nonprofit Leadership Institute of Greater Cincinnati, are provided – at no additional cost – an individual ESCC coach for the duration of the nine-month program.
Group coaching – ESCC will customize group coaching for a nonprofit. Examples include coaching a leadership team, coaching a department or coaching members of the board of directors.
Organization coaching – Coaching of a nonprofit’s leadership on systemic, strategic issues is another service offered by ESCC. Examples include clarification of the purpose and mission of the organization, dealing with cultural differences between a newly merged organization or assessing program offerings of a nonprofit.
“Tom Monaco (ESCC Volunteer Consultant) coached our entire leadership team and helped us create the framework for our organizational priorities. The coaching encouraged us as an organization to look at it differently than we did before. “

“We have worked with ESCC since 2005 on coaching projects for me and for my board. The greatest benefit to us is that of keeping our board focused and on task. Boards are comprised of busy people and the retreats have proved invaluable at keeping the board’s eye on the strategic direction and accomplishing the tasks to get that done.”
