I am accepting new Coaching Clients for 2024. Please complete the Founder & Board Member Coaching Application. I look forward to learning about your organization and making an impact with you!
Serving & Impacting,
Founder & Board Member Coaching is a 1:1 service where I work directly with the Founder, Board Members and key employees. The services includes one coaching session a month. There is an option to host sessions in person versus virtual.
The sessions are designed specifically to meet the needs of the organization's leaders. During the Coaching Term throughout the month I provide strategic plans, budgets, resources, templates, samples, training and motivation in order to increase knowledge, learn new skills and shift attitudes to make the greatest impact.
June 2021, Concerned Citizens of Cook County booked two in-person services: Boarding Training & Strategy Session. The Board Training went through explaining what is a nonprofit, the role of the board, activities board members are responsible for completing, the mission and vision of the organization, how to develop programs and services to fulfill the mission, stakeholders and partnerships. During the Strategy Session we developed a strategy for next steps to implement what they learned and developed goals for the remainder of the year.
By October 2021, the organization had built a relationship with a bank. Participants that attended the Financial Literacy Program and started a savings account with the partnered bank received matching funds, up to an amount. The Board Members were able to take the information they learned in the Board Training and Strategy Session to develop a program, secure a partner and have a positive impact on people and the community.
November 2022, two board members purchased a personal investment property. The Board Members have committed to donating space on the property to Concerned Citizens of Cook County. Organizations that receive space donated allows the organization to do more for individuals and the community with their resources and funds.
Concerned Citizens of Cook County has a Strategy Session planned for December 2022 to plan 2023 goals for the organization. The focus of the session will identify existing programs to continue and develop new programs and services now that space is secured. We also will discuss the importance of documentation and keeping things separated, clearly identifying in writing the space is donated and the value. This is important for the owners’ personal financial accounting and the nonprofits financial accounting when securing other partners and many grants.
