Thanks for your interest in the Coaching for Leaders Academy. The following are minimum qualifications for membership:
- You must be a manager, executive, or business owner (i.e. at least one other individual reports directly to you) in a business that generates at least $500,000 USD or equivalent in annual revenue OR you must be a manager, executive, or executive director (i.e. at least one other individual reports directly to you) of a government agency, NGO, or non-profit that receives at least $500,000 USD or equivalent in annual funding.
- You agree to attend a minimum of 75% of your cohort's live sessions via video-conference. That’s two sessions per month of 90-minutes each. Session days/times will be consistent, once your cohort's schedule is set. (Note: three sessions are dark during the year — the entire month of July and the second session in December, so all cohorts meet 21 times).
- You agree, if selected, that you’ll adhere to the guidelines and values of the Academy, including confidentiality of all internal dialogue.
- You agree to make a commitment to one full year of membership, for cohort consistency and to facilitate building long-term relationships. Please note there is no membership option to suspend/stop during the year.
- You have fast, reliable internet access and agree to use a camera to participate via video-conference during our live sessions. Most modern computers and phones/tablets have built-in cameras.
- You agree to give feedback to improve the Academy for all members.
- Regardless of locale, you are conversationally proficient in English, as all Academy sessions are conducted in English.
Please note that due to the annual commitment expected of all Academy members, the tuition is due at the start of the Academy year. I encourage prospective Academy members to seek professional development funding through their organization, if available.
