Leadership Excellence and Agility Program (LEAP)
LEAP is a new virtual pilot program designed exclusively for Fellowship alumnae. LEAP will empower you to tap deeper into your authentic leadership, navigate complex challenges, and create even more impact.
Our mission at The Coaching Fellowship is to empower young women impact leaders to build the new world. In service of this mission, we are so excited to introduce the Leadership Excellence and Agility Program (LEAP) exclusively to you, our Alumnae. LEAP has been carefully designed to empower you to tap deeper into your authentic leadership, navigate complex challenges, and create even more impact.
Through the 1:1 Coaching Fellowship program, you gained self-awareness, confidence, an understanding of self-limiting beliefs, and better understood your unique leadership style. However, like every great leader, as you continue on your social impact journey, you will encounter even greater and more complex challenges — both in work and in life. How will you navigate these challenges? We designed the Leadership Excellence & Agility Program (LEAP) to meet these kinds of needs: to be better leaders and to better lead others — coworkers, organizations, communities, or movements.
Through a 14-week virtual program, LEAP will support you to reach your next leadership level with a focus in the following areas:
We are running a first pilot of LEAP in Spring 2020.
Mar 20 — Jun 13
Content + Group Coaching Calls
Peer Coaching Calls
We will introduce you to leadership concepts, models and tools, but most importantly this program will be about PRACTICE! Everything we do will be focused on how you can apply tools and concepts in a practical, personal way. These are not webinars, but are truly group coaching calls — every person on the call is accountable for showing up, contributing, and being ready to coach together as a group.
The group coaching calls will be 90 minutes long and conducted via Zoom. They will be a combination of short presentations on concepts, with exercises, practice time, and small group breakouts. At the end of each call we will share a ‘Next Steps’ package with suggested homework, practices, and additional review materials. Finally, each participant will determine a specific, personal set of ‘next actions and practices,’ just as in 1:1 sessions with your coach during your TCFS fellowship program.
The calls will take place on either Wednesday or Thursday, at 8am Pacific Time, to allow for as many time zones as possible to join during daylight. This may be adjusted slightly to best accommodate the actual preferences of participants.
We will also coordinate pairs and trios for peer calls and peer support in between the group coaching calls. These will be based on timezone scheduling preferences.
When we begin the program, you will be given more detailed agendas of the calls. As we go along, we will also customize the calls and content as needed to best serve the group. This is coaching, so all calls will be both led by the coaches and co-created by everyone on the call together.
Each group coaching call will be led by TCFS senior coaches, Elise Falcone Rankin, Maria Troya and Claudia Pape, and you will have them as your guides throughout the program. Elise, Maria and Claudia have worked with over 30 of our fellows in total. They are deeply familiar with and committed to our alumnae’s growth. Confidentiality and creating a safe space for growing and practicing together will be the first priority.
