Coaching For Leadership Program 2014


Coaching For Leadership Program- Alumni

Norwich University is partnering with alumni to execute a single day coaching program for undergraduate students to build self-awareness around the specific leadership competencies necessary to become more effective leaders. This program is designed to provide safe, confidential, developmental feedback to students in order to enhance their overall leadership, teamwork, and interpersonal skills.

A successful pilot of the program was held this past spring. We now need 75 alumni volunteers to participate as leadership coaches to accommodate more students in the Architecture, Business, Engineering and Nursing Schools.

You will work hands-on with students in group and individual settings as they conduct: five case studies, an elevator pitch, and engage in a one-on-one feedback session. Alumni coaches will evaluate and provide feedback to students on competencies such as: Listening, Oral Communication, Decision Making, Ethics, Leadership, and Teamwork.
The program will take place in two parts:
