At the end of 2019, we launched HERSTORY fundraising campaign inviting members in our community to celebrate a young woman impact leader’s past, and investing in her future.
For each HERSTORY campaign, a champion shares and celebrates a young woman impact leader’s success, achievements and triumph. When the $1,000 campaign goal is reached, our team and coaches further invest in the young woman impact leader’s growth and continued development by providing her six free sessions of 1:1 leadership coaching in 2020.
We are celebrating and investing HERSTORY Fellows who are:
Strongly committed to changing the planet and can demonstrate existing change
Doing something extraordinary
Dedicated to self-discovery and development
Willing to speak freely about both difficulties and triumphs
Realistic about goals for coaching (feasible for completion within a certain time period)
Clear on what to expect from coaching (see: “What is a coach?” for further clarification)
Open to being challenged by a coach to explore outside comfort zone
Willing to give a coach feedback on coaching conversation and relationship
Previous participants of our fellowship program, OR young women impact leaders who are new to us
How Does the Coaching Program Work?
HERSTORY fellows are completely chosen and nominated through HERSTORY fundraising campaigns.
HERSTORY fellows become eligible for the coaching program when a) she meets the basic criteria above, and b) the $1,000 campaign fundraising goal is achieved by January 1, 2020
Our team will contact eligible HERSTORY fellows about the next steps no later than January 17, 2020.
Eligible HERSTORY fellows can contact TCFS team (firstname.lastname@example.org) between January 17, 2020 and June 1, 2020 to start the request for working with a coach.
Our team will personally match each fellow on a rolling basis with one of our certified and highly experienced leadership coaches who most closely meet the fellow’s coaching goals and needs.
Initial get-to-know-you call for fellow and coach to meet and determine if they are a good fit with each other.
Each fellow has six 1:1 virtual coaching sessions with her coach (via phone, Skype, Zoom etc., as agreed with your coach) to be completed within six months and no later than December 31, 2020.
Each fellow shall share her learnings and growth through coaching as a part of the HERSTORY campaign.
How Do We Match a Fellow With a Coach?
We are proud to have successfully matched over 800 of our fellows with our coaches all over the world. Our team will personally match each fellow with a coach as much as possible based on timezone compatibility, and the fellow’s coaching needs.
All our coaches are professionally trained, certified, highly experienced in leadership development, and dedicated to supporting impact leaders. They come from very different backgrounds and are experts in helping a fellow to help herself. They are here to help each fellow to gain a better understanding of her strengths and blind spots, both personally and professionally.
