Emerging Leaders Coaching Program

Community Memorial Foundation is proud to provide a coaching program dedicated to supporting emerging leaders.

Coaching is facilitated by the Center for Creative Leadership, and is intended to help strong leaders take the next step in their development by improving existing capabilities, setting meaningful goals, and being accountable for results.

  • Who is eligible?

    Any staff member (non-executive directors/CEOs) from organizations that have received a program grant from Community Memorial Foundation in the past five years. Only one applicant per organization will be considered.

  • How do I apply?

    Interested leaders must complete a coaching application. In 2024, CMF will sponsor two cohorts (one in the Winter/Spring and one in the Summer/Fall).  In each cohort, ten emerging leaders will be selected.

    Summer/Fall applications are due July 15, 2024 by 5:00 PM.

  • What is the commitment?

    Participants will complete several assessments and meet with a coach via Zoom over the course of eight months.

  • Who facilitates the program?

    Direction and technical assistance are provided by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), which focuses on addressing the leadership challenges of individuals and organizations. CCL will match participants with one of its 600 screened and vetted executive coaches.
