Get Coached!

One of the best – and one of my favorite – parts of Boot Camp has just been announced:

CTI® will once again offer free half-hour coaching sessions to all boot campers.

I’ve been working with a CTI-trained coach for several years now, and I’ve been through their coaching fundamentals course, so I can personally attest to the numerous benefits of experiencing coaching. Use this opportunity to:

  • overcome personal and professional road blocks (my coaching work led me directly to my current job at Craigslist Foundation!)
  • build and manage collaborative relationships and teams
  • strengthen your business or organization
  • get unstuck from cycles of behavior
  • unlock the potential within you to achieve your community-building dreams

Beyond your coaching session, experience how you co-active coaching skills can help you as a community leader by participating in the breakout session “The Transformative Power of the Co-Active Approach” from 2:45-3:45 pm.

This really is a special chance for all boot campers, and I hope you can join us on June 2 to harness the power of coaching for yourself.
