Nonprofit Executive Coaching in Santa Barbara
Are you spending too much time putting out fires? Are conflicts or resistance to change hampering your ability to do great work?
Nonprofit executive directors have an increasingly challenging job often resulting in a sense of isolation, an organization’s failure to achieve strategic goals, frustration on the part of the board and executive, and an expensive search for a new executive. A 2006 study (Daring to Lead, Meyer Foundation and Compass Point) of 2,000 nonprofit executive directors shows that 75% will leave their positions within 5 years. Sixty percent will leave for reasons that include a difficult executive/board relationship, lack of a trusted peer network, burnout or a need for more sophisticated leadership skills.
