“It is an absolute pleasure to recommend Nadia Prescott - she is a treasure. The Lenny Zakim Fund first came to know Nadia when we observed her present on nonprofit life cycles. We were so impressed that we hired to train over 100 grassroots leaders on the topic. Nadia researched her audience and understood perfectly how to transmit complicated and professional information to grassroots leaders. The effect of her teaching on these experienced (yet vulnerable) agencies was transformative. Nadia went further and worked one-on one with a particular program and her thorough knowledge, research of their field, and skilled facilitation of the board of directors took this organization to an entirely new level. She is an effective communicator who is sensitive to her audience, expert in her field, and able to research, learn, and assimilate new knowledge to serve her clients extremely well.” by Jude Goldman, Executive Director The Lenny Zakim Fund

Success in business today requires strong leaders at every level of the organization to navigate through the myriad of social, political, economic and technical change. Emerging Executive helps leaders – both nonprofit and corporate – embrace change and flourish in an environment that requires new skills, ongoing learning and excellent communication.
Executive coaching uses a combination of questioning, listening and accountability to support individuals move towards their personal and professional goals. We work with you to acquire the skills and competencies whether your goal is to become a CEO or Executive Director, move into a management role, or transition to a new career.
As a leader you must be passionate about your vision. You must think strategically, make effective decisions and articulate not only your vision but your organization’s vision. And you must connect and communicate in a way that inspires and motivates others to turn your vision into action. This is particularly true if you are a Board Chair or Executive Director where board members give their time voluntarily
We help you identify and develop a powerful vision for yourself as a leader and enhance your abilities to think and act decisively to inspire and motivate board members, staff and volunteers. We also focus on the more subtle communication and emotional intelligence skills necessary to build the trust to create productive relationships establish your credibility as a leader. We ensure emphasis on real life issues pivotal to achieving results, so you practice the new skills you learn on an ongoing basis.
Transitioning from a job in operations to management requires an individual to expand beyond their current capabilities and address growth opportunities. If you are a newly promoted director, for example, you may need to develop a vision, business plan and budgets for the first time.
Successful senior leaders think differently, and generate enthusiasm for new, innovative ideas and programs.
You will become aware of your behaviors, how they impact others, and identify more productive actions to ensure maximum performance from your team. We work to determine the needs of your team, and build effective relationships not only with your team but with peers and superiors. Our work provides ongoing learning through feedback and the ability to monitor and change behavior.
