Nebo Partners with Element North to Present Web Course Series on Entrepreneurship for Coaches
Most coaches are passionate about coaching, but quickly realize that starting a coaching business also means becoming a smart entrepreneur. This 8-part web course is designed to help you to clarify, differentiate and strengthen your offer, develop a successful and sustainable coaching practice and navigate the ins-and-outs of starting and growing a coaching business.
The Nebo Company CEO Kate Ebner and the Managing Partners of Element North, Kristi Hedges and Mike McGinley, will lead each class and provide a host of practical tools, resources and perspective to give momentum and focus to your business efforts.
The Coach Entrepreneur features guest appearances by subject matter experts on topics such as legal concerns related to setting up and running the business, marketing and building your brand, and managing for profit and financial success.
Our philosophy of leadership development begins with a strong bias—the best coaches are themselves experienced leaders. Our business experience forms the basis of our program methodology to tie all results to organizational outcomes that matter.
We're a team of business executives with deep operational backgrounds. We've run 3,000-person divisions in Fortune 50 companies and cast out and run entrepreneurial ventures. We've worked our way up through traditional corporate structures and taken unconventional routes to senior positions. We are leaders. We know the view from the seat, and understand how leaders are created, groomed, and what it takes to be an exceptional one.
Kristi Hedges is an experienced entrepreneur, communications expert, and leadership coach. She has developed a unique methodology adapted specifically to the needs of senior executives to provide transformational tools for motivating and inspiring others. Her leadership programs have been utilized by CEOs and leadership teams in companies spanning the Fortune 500, the U.S. government and privately held businesses. Prior to Element North, Kristi co-founded and ran one of the top technology communications firms in the Washington, D.C. area for a decade before successfully selling her interest. Her career highlights also include working for a national news outlet, and as a political consultant developing messages for dozens of electoral campaigns from U.S. President to statewide offices.
Mike McGinley is an executive coach and leadership development consultant whose passion is helping leaders and their organizations become the largest possible versions of themselves. In his work with executives across the public and private sectors, Mike utilizes the principles of pattern recognition to broaden perspectives and to help clients leverage the attributes that factor strongest in their success.
Mike is a former corporate executive himself, and he leans heavily on that perspective to frame his work with leaders in a business context. He was fortunate during his 20-year career at Capital One, Johnson & Johnson, and Bank of America to have lived in Europe, and he has worked in over a dozen countries leading and catalyzing change. His experience includes leading worldwide customer service with direct responsibility for 3,500 people in five countries, growing facilities from inception to 1,000 people, and serving as COO of Capital One France. Organizationally, Mike was celebrated as a visionary and inspirational leader with exceptional presence who could mobilize people around the boldest of goals.
