I tried a variety of consultants but I needed coaching. Consultants sent me their reports and vanished. I thought coaches were for football! Coaching differs from consulting in that coaching expects change and growth. Also, coaching is new to nonprofits but more common in the for-profit world where shareholders expect results.
I discovered coaching out of desperation! Our nonprofit was struggling as we ran out of cash on our way to our biggest surplus ever. We read Scaling Up and signed up for a coaching experience. Our team decided to fight for all we had accomplished, – and we won. A benefit of those experiences is that I developed more leadership capacity along the way. I became the leader that I needed to be.
