“Coaching Non-Profit Leaders to Sustainable Success”

Do you experience these frustrations?

  • “No-one else understands exactly what my role is or the pressures I face. It's lonely at the top"
  • “There is a lack of clarity or active disagreement by our Board Members of what our strategic direction should be”
 
  • “I feel overwhelmed much of the time”
​​
  • “I seem to spend most of my time in “Management Mode” and seldom get the chance to focus on my “Leadership” role”
​​
  • “I end up avoiding many important tasks”
​​
  • “I often wonder whether I am doing a good enough job”
​​
  • “I have no sense of balance in my life. I feel like I need to work days, nights and weekends and have no time for others, let alone myself”

Hi-I'm Craig. I’ve had the pleasure of working and coaching within and around the Non-Profit sector for over 25 years.

I know first-hand many of the challenges that go along with the role you’ve assumed.  Whether you're new to the field and must quickly get up to speed, or you’ve been around a while and are looking to rejuvenate your role, I’d love to chat about how I might support your success!

As the primary caretaker of their organization, a non-profit Executive Director must wear multiple hats: visionary, stakeholder engager, organizational change agent, relationship builder, and primary fundraiser. The responsibilities of an executive position, especially at smaller and growing organizations, can seem limitless.

HOW CAN COACHING HELP?

Working together we will:

 

  •  Assess your competency and confidence across 9 Core Competency Areas.

  • Co-create a personal development plan that leverages your strengths and builds on weaker competency areas.

  • Create a personal sustainable workflow that advances your Organization’s Mission and Vision while ensuring personal balance.

  • Enhance your ability to maintain equilibrium and take mindful, values-based action in the face of rapidly changing and challenging circumstances. 

Start by booking a 30-minute introductory call with me (free and no obligations). On the call I can learn more about your needs and challenges and we can work out whether we’re a good fit for one another. I'll then send you a no-obligation proposal that addresses the specific problems and objectives that you'd like to work on.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

I first came to Craig while working on my PhD at the University of Oxford as I was failing to make progress on writing my thesis. I had tried two other coaches previously but they didn't work out. My experience with Craig was categorically different. Whereas the other coaches seemed to have a boilerplate approach to coaching driven by worksheets and platitudes, Craig really listened and understood the problems and behaviors I was struggling with. Over repeated sessions, he was amazing at spotting negative patterns in my behavior that I couldn't see myself and at providing concrete guidance on how to address those self-defeating habits. In the time that I've been working with Craig I've accomplished things I didn't think were possible. I've completed my PhD, published multiple peer-reviewed papers, finished three triathlons, and established a loving, healthy relationship with my soon-to-be wife. I can honestly say that all of this would not have been possible without Craig's steady, insightful guidance keeping me on track.
