Leadership Coaching with Theresa Haenn

How would you answer these questions:

• Are you able to do what you do best every day?
• Is your nonprofit organization fulfilling its mission at its very best?
• Are you confident that your whole team, including staff and volunteers, is committed to consistently doing high-quality work?

Leadership is a way of being and showing up as your best self – every day. Leaders are responsible for sharing their vision of success and helping their team members consistently perform at the highest level so that your stakeholders (clients, donors, community members) know that you are making an impact.

Before you can effectively lead others, you will benefit by knowing how you lead yourself. What is it that makes you an impactful and effective leader? How can you leverage the things you do well and be even better?

Traditional management focuses on fixing problems. Admittedly, we can’t be great at everything, which is why it is important to build on what you already do well and find someone who can help you in the areas that are not your strengths.

This is the power of strengths-based leadership – knowing what you do very well and intentionally focusing on those talents to consistently perform at your highest level.

Coaching definition with the word, 'coaching' highlighted in green

In my career I:

* Spent 15 years leading my family business that grew from <$400,000 to >$1 million in less than 10 years. How? By focusing on what our clients needed and offering the benefits that helped our employee’s families most.

* Spent the last 24+ years in the not-for-profit sector leading teams and organizations that raised more than $150 million to fund medical research, serve homeless families, provide education and bring relief and opportunity to families in the global south.

* Honed a values-based leadership style that helps board volunteers and C-Suite leaders make a difference for their organization, stakeholders, community, and the people they benefit.

* Committed to a life of continuous learning and sharing that knowledge with others.

* Built a boutique consulting company dedicated to helping passionate people make a difference in their community. During this time, I have studied and been certified by highly respected and nationally recognized organizations in the coaching and fundraising sectors.
