The Executive Coaching for Leaders (EXCL) Project

EXCL is a pilot project that is designed to assist new leaders (less than four years experience) in their role in the non-profit sector to deal with the priorities/challenges and opportunities they are facing and that would benefit from being supported by an executive coach. The EXCL project is an MFNPO administered project funded by The Winnipeg Foundation.

 

What is Executive Coaching?

“Executive coaching is defined as a process of supporting individuals to make more conscious decisions about their professional and personal lives. Executive coaches assist leaders in learning about themselves, their interpersonal relationships, and their styles of learning, leading, managing people, making decisions, and managing conflict.

Coaching is a confidential process for individuals to identify what’s important in personal and organizational values and to be more successful in acting on what’s important. Coaching is a developmental process based on identifying and building on the individual’s strengths and internal resources.

Through a series of sessions with a professional coach, individuals identify goals, barriers to success, and action strategies to help them achieve their goals. The coach supports the individual in staying committed to priorities she or he says are important. Coaches ask good questions that support learning and solutions from the ED and provide supportive reinforcement to put new insights into practice.”

There is an assumption that leaders participating in the project will want to continue working with coaches beyond EXCL to gain their desired long term results. Funding for future coaching beyond the pilot project will be the responsibility of the participants and/or their organization.

 

Details on the EXCL Project:

Invitation – December 2017 – the invitation is circulated to organizations in the non-profit sector by the Executive Director of MFNPO.

Participation – interested participants will submit their application to the Project Coordinator – Dianne McCoy by December 31, 2017 at info@mfnpo.org

Selection: Applications will be reviewed and applicants will be interviewed by the Project Coordinator with selection of applicants to occur by January 12, 2018. All applicants to the EXCL project will be advised by email on their status. For those selected, instructions on the process for coaching will be provided.

The coaching discussions between the leader and coach will be confidential and one on one with the coach.  General themes that emerge out of the coaching will be noted and reported for the purposes of what is common to the leaders and for the future of coaching and leadership in the sector.

Coaching will take place between the coach and the leader from January 15, 2018 to March 15, 2018.  Coaching appointments will be arranged between the coach with the leader to occur within that time-period.

Open Badges Workshops

PILOT PROJECT: Exploring a New Way of Learning
October 18 & November 1, 2016

Register Now

 

Lead as You Learn Like Never Before

Join us in a special pilot project to take professional development into the next generation. Become part of a dynamic group of current and future non-profit leaders who will explore how Open Badge eCredentials can help make learning more accessible and useful for Manitoba’s non-profits.

In addition to helping your sector, you’ll gain valuable insights about skills frameworks, developing leadership capabilities and other helpful resources that you can bring back to your organization.

Why is MFNPO piloting Open Badge eCredentials?

Our mission as Manitoba’s non-profit sector organization is to create professional development pathways that will deliver the skills needed in the sector at large. The Open Badge eCredentials initiative is a new, leading-edge, and vital tool to help us fulfill that mission.

Open Badges recognize skills learned and nurtured outside of the conventional classroom. Based on a common digital standard, they can be shared over networks and social media like LinkedIn. They can help individuals build their careers and employers find the skills they need. (Find out more at openbadges.org)

Through this initiative, MFNPO will change the way our sector looks at professional development. The initiative can keep our sector nimble and robust as we adapt to the continuously changing world of work by promoting and recognizing all forms of learning.

As the sector council for non-profit organizations in Manitoba, it is our duty to lead, explore, and innovate. Please join us!
