Note that we consider consulting and coaching to be two distinct processes: Consulting is working with an expert who can provide expertise and an outside perspective on a particular issue (for example, managing change, building a Board, working with volunteers)  offering advice, sharing his or her knowledge and varied resources. Coaching is working one-on-one with a supportive professional to uncover strengths and weaknesses, and develop new skills and self-awareness.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Deadlines are as follows. Applicants will be contacted with a decision approximately 4 – 6 weeks after the deadline.
