Welcome to the Group Leadership Coaching Program Application Form!


We are excited to introduce Group Leadership Coaching Program, a pilot program offering group and one-on-one leadership coaching to ten arts leaders from five organizations in collaboration with Emmanuel Neal, Management Consultant, Executive Coach, and Ph.D. Candidate at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.  

We think coaching could be essential to arts leaders, particularly those new to senior roles, as they manage expectations to address the harms of the pandemic on their organizations while envisioning new models for operating and transforming work culture to support equity. 


Who Is Encouraged to Apply?


In view of this scenario, we’re accepting applications from two senior leaders within the same nonprofit, the “lead applicant” being the new arts leader and the “second applicant” being a staff or board member. Only one application per organization is needed.

If you're accepted into the program, you'll be one member of a cohort of ten arts leaders from five nonprofit organizations. Through group and individual coaching sessions, you'll build meaningful relationships, receive ongoing support, and solve complex problems together.  

The application deadline is April 16th, 2023, at 5:00 pm CST.
