Webinar: What Is a Coach Approach to Philanthropy?

Complimentary for Exponent Philanthropy members / $40 non-members

The “coach approach” is a skillset and mindset that can transform the key relationships in your philanthropic work. Using deep listening and powerful questions, the “coach approach” helps you gain awareness, discover new ways of thinking, and focus on creating collaborative solutions.

During this webinar, you will learn the basics of the approach and hear from a practitioner who uses it to achieve a greater impact through philanthropy.
