Common Questions When Hiring a Coach:
Why does LSI offer coaching ?
As the future of association leadership today we know that moving an organization is a whole ball game. The pressure is on like never before with concerns over social media replacing memberships increasing the need for new sources of revenue, technology, lack of volunteers, shortage of resources and staff trends toward retirement.
Who do we coach?
LSI coaches both association staff and association volunteer leadership officers. Our clients are generally either senior association executives looking for fresh perspectives from an XY association professional or they are a younger professional wanting to get clear about their goals and pathway to success. For volunteers making the financial commitment to coaching we work with them to assure their year in leadership is efficient, effective and fun.
Coaching sessions are offered in 60 and 90 minute phone, Skype or face to face sessions. Executives seeking coaching commit to a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month commitment.
