Building stronger leaders in the non-profit sector

As a part of our mission to strengthen the nonprofit sector, the United Way Saint John, Kings & Charlotte believes in fostering strong leadership.

Recently, a number of leaders serving the region’s most vulnerable populations had the opportunity to enrol in Using Coaching to Lead, an interactive leadership training program offered by Saint John-based Vision Coaching.

Through a series of intensive online sessions funded by the United Way, leaders of all ages and experience levels learned how to leverage the power of the “coach approach” to their leadership. Atlantic Canada’s largest leadership coaching firm, Vision Coaching offers an array of leadership coaching programs and services, including this program for the non-profit sector.

It resonated.

“I really enjoyed the whole process of becoming more aware of the coach approach and trying it out with co- workers, friends and family. The results of doing so have been immediate and impactful,” one leader said afterward. “A real game changer!”

Added another: “This course exceeded my expectations. I was impressed by how much of an impact it has had on my interactions thus far. One of the best training sessions I have ever done.”

Our partnerships with Vision Coaching and others allows us to offer progressive professional development opportunities to leaders in organizations that provide critical services in our communities, strengthening their impact.
