Why You Need an Impact Coach

An impact coach champions you to envision and create the results you want in your organization, career, and life.

As a nonprofit, education, or foundation professional you may find yourself feeling burned out, sometimes disconnected from your values, or wondering how to better amplify your impact. It’s also common to feel unfilled and unmotivated, despite looking like you have it all.

If you’re an executive director, president or head of school it can be lonely, and hard to find people to help you solve challenges in a way that doesn’t leave you feeling vulnerable. And if you’re a director or manager, with people above and below you, the pressure can be overwhelming, getting in the way of you being your best at work and at home.

Creating a reality where you feel empowered and at the top of your game is possible when you replace doubt and stress with focus, passion, and joy. Having a coach to help you address challenges big and small with confidence and balance can make all the difference. 

A good coach will help you access new ideas, solutions and possibilities that are almost impossible to uncover on your own. Whether it’s reaching new organizational goals, achieving a more sound and steady work life balance, or both, your coach will help unlock new inspiration that dramatically moves you forward.

And having a coach you trust is life-changing because there is someone 100% in your corner who has your back. Your coach is a neutral party, not your boss or colleague, which allows you to have a safe place to explore and address your challenges and opportunities, or to help you realize a dream or goal you’ve already set. 

Your coach will champion you to identify all of the possible solutions to the obstacles holding you, your team, or organization back — and then help you plan for the right action to remove them so you can make breakthrough progress.

As you plan for 2022 ask yourself these five questions:

  1. What are three things you would like to change about your work, life, or both in the next 3 to 6 months? 
  2. How will your life be impacted when you’ve made these changes? 
  3. How will your colleagues and organization be impacted when you’ve made these changes?
  4. What’s kept you from already making these changes?
  5. What will you miss out on and how will you feel if, a year from now, nothing has changed? 

Do you want to feel better as you have a greater impact in your life through your work, volunteering, or family?
