Coaching Skills for BIPOC Leaders (4-Part Series)

 

This is a live, online event where you’ll participate actively with facilitators and other participants! We will send login information two days before the event, so please make sure you enter your email correctly when you register. In order to build community, we do not record our workshops. If you miss a training date, we cannot provide you with a recording of the training.

Registration for this training is offered on a sliding scale. If your personal or organizational budget allows you to, please pay the full fee so we can keep registration accessible for leaders and organizations who may not be in the same position. Greater access strengthens us all!
 

This is a space for participants who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color

We hope that these trainings will invite BIPOC leaders to build power by building community, share more honestly about the challenges they face, and deepen their learning by sharing time and space with their peers. For white participants, we ask that you respect the intention of this space by registering for versions of these offerings that don’t have BIPOC-only in the title: www.compasspoint.org/workshops.


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.  

Patriarchy, white supremacy, and capitalism thrive when “solutions” are imposed on our bodies and our communities without our participation or consent. For BIPOC leaders especially, coaching skills can be a powerful way to bring our wisdom, experiences, and creativity front and center.

 

Who is this training for?

This space is only for folks who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color. If you are looking for a multiracial space (that includes white folks), we encourage you to sign up for Coaching Skills for Leaders. This is a space for people who work at nonprofit organizations and / or in social justice movement spaces who want to learn and practice basic coaching skills. This offering is not limited to positional leaders, but can be especially helpful if you’re a manager or supervisor. If you’re responsible for the growth and development of others on your team, you’ll likely find coaching skills and mindsets valuable. If you’re a leader in your organization or community helping others to reflect, grow, and tap into their own internal resources and strengths, problems, come learn and practice coaching skills with us!
 

Please note: This is a four-part series. Check dates carefully before you commit to make sure you can attend all four parts.
 

In this four-part series, you will:

  1. Learn the coaching mindset (“How attitude, openness, and the outlook create the right space for others’ discovery and development”)
     

  2. Build on your communication abilities through three key coaching skills (“deeper/engaged listening,” “inquiry,” and “championing”)
     

  3. Learn how coaching interrupts dominating behavior and builds power with others
     

  4. Practice, practice, practice!

Get ready to participate!

Our trainings come alive with your participation and willingness to engage. Please be ready to participate in group discussions and share your experience, creativity, questions, and challenges with us. In particular, you will practice coaching skills with other participants (both as a coach and coachee). We'll share visual and verbal information, make time for group discussions, and create other opportunities for real-time participation.

 

This is a multi-day event. Please make sure you can attend all dates before registering! Before registering, make sure you are familiar with our cancellation policy.
