Coach, mentor, advisor, champion--there are many similar terms that describe an individual you share your personal or professional journey with. How do you know where to begin?

In our latest webinar, discover the value of coaching and learn how it differs from other mentoring models. Karen Phillips, coaching guru and Program Manager at the International Youth Foundation, explains how engaging with a coach can help young social entrepreneurs achieve personal and organization-wide goals, and how coaching relationships can improve the experience of the staff they manage. Also included in the webinar are live examples of coaching strategies--how to establish expectations, ask the right questions, and ensure your sessions are useful to the coachee.

During the webinar, a special Alumni Executive Coaching opportunity was announced for YouthActionNet Fellowship alumni. As part of YouthActionNet's continuing education series, selected participants will receive executive coaching to help them develop personal growth plans and map a vision for what's next at their organzation.
