Coaching Resumes In-Person
Fieldstone’s coaching program began its 26th year with a full cohort of nonprofit leaders engaging in our year-long program. With matches officially made in December 2021, coaches and coachees had introductory meetings in January, as well as a group orientation to help them navigate the program. In February, all coachees completed a 360 Degree Review and met with program facilitators so they are better able to interpret the data and begin to formulate a development plan. And in March, Fieldstone hosted our first quarterly meeting with our coaches to check in and identify resources and support needed to support their coachees on their specific paths.
Welcome to our 2022 Coachees:
Michael Angelo Camacho, VAPA Foundation; Max Disposti, No Co LGBTQ Resource Center; Monica Emery, Center for World Music; Natalie Ganz, SD Public Library Foundation; James Halliday, ARTS; Heidi Knuff, SD Diplomacy Council; Jason Martin, Mama’s Kitchen, Stephanie Ortega, Promises2Kids; Abby Reynolds, Center Stage Productions, Adrienne Rich, Arts Education Connection SD; DeMilo Young, BIPOC Support Foundation and Lindsay Zehan, Resounding Joy.
Fieldstone plans to add additional coaches to their team this year. Fieldstone coaches have all worked as nonprofit CEOs at some point in their career and commit to sharing their knowledge and lived experience with those currently leading in the nonprofit sector. As a coach, they commit to monthly meetings with their coachee for the duration of the one year program. To date, Fieldstone coaches remain with the program for many years. Many of our coaches have been part of the program since its inception!! This fact speaks to the reciprocity of the program, as coaches appreciate all they get out of the program and from their coachees. Training is scheduled for November 2022 so new coaches will be available for the 2023 program. In preparation for the training, Fieldstone is updating and redesigning its proprietary curriculum to better meet the evolved needs of nonprofit leaders and to better reflect the social justice environment in which we live and work.
