  4. Career Compass newsletter articles that address critical career issues.

All available without charge to promote professional development at all levels in local government. 

Purpose of Coaching Program

As many local government executives retire, the Coaching Program aims to prepare talented mid-career professionals to take their places in senior management roles. Through a volunteer network of experienced local government executives and senior assistants serving as coaches, the Coaching Program aims to:

  • Support the professional and personal development of new and aspiring managers;
  • Encourage an ethos of mentoring and coaching at all levels in the local government management profession; and,
  • Provide opportunities for successful local government managers to share their expertise in ways that are effective, efficient, and personally rewarding.
