Bring CompassPoint Trainings
to Your Organization

Learning as a team can be a powerful way to shift practices, systems, and culture across your organization. CompassPoint offers all of its public trainings as "in-house" learning experiences that can be delivered specifically for your team. Bring one of our trainings in-house, or pick and choose several offerings to create a team-based learning series that meets your organization's goals for growth, learning, and change. 

If you're new to learning with CompassPoint (or if it's been a while), we encourage you to explore our vision and values, register for one of our public trainings so you can experience our content first-hand, or read our blog to learn a little bit more about us. 

In response to the pandemic, all of our trainings are currently offered online via Zoom, including in-house trainings. As 2021 unfolds, we'll follow local, state, and federal guidelines on re-opening.

Current Offerings


Coaching Skills for Leaders
 

Why Coaching? Coaching helps put into practice the idea that the people closest to the problem have the solutions. When we coach each other, we center self-determination, create space for accountability, and unlock each other’s gifts.

This offering is not limited to positional leaders, but can be especially helpful if you’re a manager or supervisor. If you’re a leader in your organization or community, come learn and practice coaching skills with us!
 

In this four-part series, you will:

  • Learn what coaching is and how it can help you build power with others instead of over others
     
  • Ground in the “coaching mindset”
     
  • Learn three key coaching skills you can use as a supervisor or manager
     
  • Learn how to apply a coaching framework when people are stuck and need to move to action

Conflict Resolution With Power and Privilege in Mind


Interpersonal conflict isn’t a matter of “if”, it’s a matter of “when”. Most of us avoid conflict, forgetting that on the other side of tension we can often find transformation. 

When we get into conflict with each other (at our organizations or in movement spaces), we often do so without taking time and space beforehand to slow down and explore our own relationship to conflict, namely, what drives our reactions and how our approach to conflict relates to power and privilege. This is a space to learn how to shift power dynamics by employing communication skills like listening, inquiry, and empathy. 
 

In this online workshop, you will:

  • Explore how approaches to conflict are often rooted in dominant culture values and start a shift toward new, more generative approaches
     
  • Examine how your own identity, culture, and relationship to power influence how you approach conflict
     
  • Identify and employ key communication competencies like deeper listening, inquiry, and empathy

Develop a personal set of principles for dealing with conflict that reflects your values and identify at least one new way to approach conflict in the future 

This is a space for people who work at nonprofit organizations and / or in social justice movement spaces who want to explore approaches to interpersonal conflict resolution and develop an approach that reflects their values.

Change, Transition and the Practice of Adaptive Leadership


In a time of significant change in our world and our organizations, what is often ignored or downplayed is how to lead people through transition. Getting people through transition is essential if the change we’re aiming toward is actually going to take root.

When you are leading a team or an organization through a difficult change – when leadership is especially important – you will inevitably challenge what people hold dear – their daily habits, their loyalties, and their ways of thinking. 

This interactive session will examine the intersection of change, transition, and leadership and offer strategies and tools for managing and leading through challenging, transformative moments. 


In this online workshop, you will:

  • Understand the distinction between change and transition
     
  • Explore a Margin to Center framework
     
  • Learn to distinguish between adaptive challenges and technical fixes

Facilitation Skills: Creating Inclusive and Purposeful Meetings


Meetings! We’ve all experienced what it’s like when they go wrong: frustrating conversations that go nowhere and leave people feeling disempowered.

Do you have the skills it takes to plan a meeting, get the right voices in the room, and guide conversations toward meaningful goals? What role does race, gender, power, and privilege play in meetings? How can you wield power to create more inclusive meetings that unlock everyone’s gifts and contributions?

This online workshop is a space to start unlearning some ineffective meeting habits and practice something new. 

This is a space for people who work at nonprofit organizations and / or in social justice movement spaces with some experience facilitating and who want to make facilitation choices that reflect their values. 


In this online workshop, you will:

  • Learn how to use the “purpose, outcome, and process” (P.O.P) format to design an upcoming meeting
     
  • Reflect on your own identity and lived experience and how it shapes your approach to designing inclusive meetings
     
  • Learn about strategies for interrupting oppressive power dynamics during meetings

Manage Your Time and Energy: A Path To Personal Sustainability


When we manage our time and energy solely through the lens of “productivity,” we forget to tend to our whole selves and practice the habits that sustain us for the long haul. Showing up to nonprofit and social justice work requires us to move with purpose, get things done, and cultivate personal sustainability. In this online workshop, you will: Start to identify obstacles—internal, interpersonal, and institutional—that are hindering personal sustainability. Understand a framework for energy management that includes the four core energy needs: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Learn strategies and practices for better time management and personal organization. This is a space for people who work at nonprofit organizations and / or in social justice movement spaces who want to explore what it means to manage their time and energy in the context of social change work.

Supervision: Relationships and Structures that Help us Thrive


Supervision is both a structure and a relational practice that keeps us accountable and helps us grow. When supervision goes wrong, our work suffers, and so do we. When we supervise in a way that breaks with narratives and habits from the dominant culture, we open the door to mutual flourishing. In this online workshop, you will: Explore where dominant culture ideas of supervision come from and how these narratives replicate oppression. Develop and rethink your own approach to supervision, with a focus on two key skills: setting expectations and giving feedback. Think critically about supervisorial systems at your own organization and craft one authentic commitment on how you will shift supervision practices. Reflect on your power and privilege as a supervisor. This is a space for people who work at nonprofit organizations and / or in social justice movement spaces who are new to supervision or who want to re-envision their approach to supervision.
