ED Convene Groups
Peer Coaching for Nonprofit Leaders
Communities of practice with 8-10 nonprofit Executive Directors/CEOs in peer leadership coaching groups facilitated by a Certified SVP Partner Coach. Leading an organization is challenging and no one is meant to go it alone.
We're launching ED Convene groups soon, and beginning by capturing interest.
Certified SVP Partner Coaches Facilitate Peer Coaching Groups for Nonprofit Leaders
Let's Invest in our social impact leaders!
Strengthen Individual Nonprofit Leaders
Enhance Organizational Capacity
More Connected Social Impact Ecosystem
We need to invest in our leaders so that they can invest into our communities. Community is critical for us to thrive. All executive leaders, whether for-profit or for-purpose, need peers who understand the challenges and dynamics of a demanding role. Traditional executive coaching can be a big investment for a nonprofit organization.
If we can bring together groups of nonprofit leaders for regular connection and leadership support, it will Strengthen Individual Nonprofit Leaders, Enhance Organizational Capacity, and create a More Connected Social Impact Ecosystem.
What are ED Convene Peer Groups?
Peer coaching leverages the knowledge and talents of a group of trusted professionals with the impact of coaching. There is a lot of knowledge in the room when you bring together 8-10 leaders alongside an SVP Partner Coach. No one person has all of the answers, but together we have most of them. SVP Partners are business and community professionals with extensive leadership experience and they bring a unique outside perspective to join the nonprofit leaders in a conversation that is rich and effective.

Monthly Session Format
Quick Individual Updates & Accountability (10 minutes each - 90 minutes)
Each organization is allotted 10 minutes to provide an update on their organizational opportunities/challenges, how they’re doing as a leader, and update the group on goals set at the last session.
Hot Seat - Two Organizations/Session (45 minutes each - 90 minutes)
Two organizations each prepare ahead of time to present a significant challenge or opportunity for the group to process together. This is a very efficient time to gain specific practical inputs about present issues or future aspirational goals.
Set Individual Goals for Next Session (5 minutes each - 60 minutes)
An important aspect of peer coaching is accountability. Each session will end with a goal setting exercise to provide an opportunity for mutual support and measured progress.
