Coaching Program for Development Leaders

The Opportunity

The nonprofit sector reflects overarching trends in the workforce at large. Issues of burnout and retention, shifts in priority and focus, and intense financial demands burden organizations and the people whose responsibility it is to support them, namely development leaders.

While myriad coaching programs exist to develop executives, very few are tailored specifically for the philanthropy sector with its distinct aspirations, characteristics, and motivators. There is a real need to marry a deep knowledge of fundraising with insights-based coaching best practices to reconnect development leaders to their personal missions, empower them to take stock, and craft and implement their trajectory for success.

The Alchemy of Transformation Coaching Program for Development Leaders is the solution the coaching and consulting firm Davi-Gold LLC offers to the nonprofit sector’s essential callings and challenges born out of a profound understanding of and decades within the industry and an abiding commitment to personal and professional transformation.
