Twice per year, The Coaching Fellowship selects between 50 and 75 young high potential women leaders each time in the social impact sector to become our fellows. Fellows receive executive level coaching at a massively reduced rate so they may focus deeply on personal and leadership development, attaining their goals, and changing the world in the process. In addition, fellows join our network of 400+ women impact leaders around the world.
Learn more about how we got started and why we’re doing this.
Fellows receive a total of 11 hours of intensive 1:1 executive coaching sessions over a period of 6 months via phone/Skype/WhatsApp with one of our highly experienced and certified coaches.
There are two parts of the program:
Part One: 8 intensive coaching sessions over 4 months
Part Two: 3 coaching sessions over 2 months
Program costs: The Fellowship is offered at a dramatically reduced rate, but not completely free. We ask fellows to donate $495 as a fee for the program.
NOTE: Typically such a program costs between $5,000 and $7,000. Through the incredible generosity of our coaches, who offer their services completely pro-bono, we are proud to be able to offer fellowship places at this rate. Fellows’ donations go to The Coaching Fellowship’s operational costs, so as a 501 c 3 non-profit organization we may continue to support many more incredible young women leaders in the future.
The Coaching Fellowship is open to any young woman leader based anywhere in the world, who is today transforming our world for the better.
We are looking for a candidate who is:
Typically our fellows earn less than $125,000 per year.
Disclaimer: We have a requirement that a fellow in the TCFS program is emotionally and mentally stable before joining our program. If you have experienced significant emotional trauma, a traumatic event, and have been in recovery or treatment in the last 12 month, we recommend that you consider applying for our fellowship program after at least 12 months post-recovery.
Coaching is a wonderful process for opening up transformation and going deep, but the serious concern is that it can also trigger traumatic emotions if you are recovering and healing from trauma, and because our coaches don’t have therapeutic training to support that, it could potentially harm you, and we would never, ever want that for anyone.
If you have any questions regarding this requirement, please reach out to us at [email protected].
A coach is NOT the same as a mentor, consultant, or career counselor.
A mentor/consultant will set out to train or give you direct advice in support of the professional goal or project you are attempting to accomplish. A career counselor will help you to hone professional development skills such as creating a resume or cover letter, and give you direction on your career path.
A Coaching Fellowship coach, on the other hand, will work with you to reach your personal and professional goals. They will guide you and help you to focus on your strengths, rather directly advising you. They will enable you to grow, motivate you and hold you accountable to your goals.
