Coaching is a partnership with a purpose — and the purpose of our program is to support you to make the most of your gifts, be a more self-aware and compassionate leader, spark your strategic chops, beat burnout — and, ultimately, make transformative leaps in your leadership toward a more just world.
Pod Coaching is designed for social and climate justice leaders looking for leadership support. If you're working on complex issues and are interested in learning in an intimate group of like-minded peers from around the world, this program is for you! You'll have the support of a certified Integral Master Coach™.
Spring’s coaches have worked with more than 200 people in 30 countries. We've coached frontline defenders and non-profit and philanthropic leaders around the world. Learn more about our approach.
Coaching sessions will take place online via Zoom. All participants will need to connect with a video camera and audio capabilities.
The pod coaching groups will be created on a rolling basis. Get started by registering on this form if you're interested. The exact dates and times will be finalized with your pod coach but coaching sessions usually occur every few weeks over the course of 6 months.
Pod coaching is a highly interactive, peer-learning-oriented model for getting coaching support and staying motivated to reach your goals. You will begin by understanding your unique strengths and everything that got you to where you are today. You'll also set a specific intention or goal for your coaching program. We then work with you on developing new, more expansive perspectives and capacities that will enable you to realize (and possibly exceed) your coaching goal. Participation in a coaching program involves trying new things, including what lies outside of your comfort zone.
The program brings you together online with four other changemakers for six coaching sessions, along with at-your-own-pace videos and tools for building new skills and capacities. Each individual participant will get customized feedback from the coach. It’s also a great way to grow your network and build relationships across borders.
Are you ready? If you are, we promise real and sustained personal growth, including a greater capacity to realize the things you deeply care about.
If you're still not sure, take our quiz to help you understand what kind of support fits your needs.
What past participants say
"For me, it was a great learning experience and clarified many doubts I had regarding my leadership style. My goal was to be better able to develop and empower my team to act in a more proactive and creative way, with greater strategic alignment and coherence and with a more holistic vision, and I mostly achieved this goal ... I believe that everyone with management or coordination responsibilities needs this type of peer coaching. It allows us to reflect on other types of power, from resilience to collective care and prioritization of decisions." — Tanya Elena Lockwood Fallas, Costa Rica
