In an effort to reinforce the value of professional and personal development, the Ohio Society of Association Executives, the OSAE Foundation and McWherter Coaching Group,, are excited to announce the kick-off of the third-annual “Investing In You: The 2020 Leadership Coaching Initiative.”

This initiative, which is open to all segments of OSAE membership, is an exciting way for your organization to help you invest in yourself and your long-term success. Once more, this year, the initiative will allow five engaged and committed individuals to participate in a six-month coaching program, with our organization assuming 50 percent of the costs of the investment program!

Why should you consider applying? Leadership coaching is for people who are aware of an opportunity, challenge or issue that is presenting itself for them to resolve. Coaching is an action-oriented investment in your own growth. As OSAE Member Wendy McWherter, who is once again spearheading the initiative noted, clients set the goals and do the work.  The application questions will help us discern if the clients are ready for coaching.

“Good coaching clients have an emerging vision for a specific goal or results they want to work on during the six months of the coaching engagement,” McWherter said. “Clients – OSAE’s members – have to be ready for coaching and the work it will entail. Executive Coaches are thinking partners for professionals ready to achieve more.”

The deadline for applying is Jan. 13, 2020.  

Once all of the applications have been received, the organization’s leadership will review them alongside McWherter to determine which candidates seem most qualified for this year’s program. Once these candidates are selected, McWherter will personally contact them to confirm their interest in participating and get them onboarded. At that time, OSAE will also inform any other interested applicants that they were not among those chosen to participate at this time. However, we are very interested in working with anyone who is interested in order to move them into a future coaching opportunity. The leadership sessions will be provided via telephone calls with McWherter in order to make it easy for any OSAE member – no matter their physical location – to participate in the initiative.

We hope you’ll take advantage of this great opportunity. To find out more about pricing and complete the application for this program, please select this link!
