Creating a Coaching Culture in Your Organization

Coaching skills and cultural awareness are especially important skill sets for organizations in our current divisive political and racial environment. Coaching skills become more than just a tool for leadership development. Instead the skills become tools that empower people throughout the organization, creating a coaching culture and common language. The cultural awareness/anti-racism/anti-oppression component supports staff to show up authentically and bridge cultural divides. The combination of coaching skills and cultural awareness creates a solid foundation for enhanced diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.

With culturally diverse facilitators who are experienced in leading culturally diverse groups, Collaborate Change conducts experiential coaching skills and cultural awareness workshops that support capacity building in an affirming and engaging manner, deepening connection across cultural difference.
