High Quality and Effective Coach
I want to recommend the coach I was linked with in the middle leader program, Jim Geiger, as a resource for the program. He has recently retired from his R5 S&P job, but has continued his coaching education, earned ACE (Academy for Coaching Excellence) certification, and has continued his coaching practice as a private consultant.
My informal query of folks I attended Middle Leader indicated that the coaching experience was widely varied and, in some cases, not of notable benefit. Those of us set up with Jim all experienced high quality and effective coaching from an experienced land manager genuinely interested in the practice of coaching others. If there is a possibility of engaging Jim as a consultant contractor, it will be a benefit to the program participants who are given the opportunity to work with him as a coach, as it has been for me.
