Become the person you want to be.

Leaders are faced with complicated challenges. At Fisher, coaching is a key sense-making process that guides our graduate students as they navigate those challenges in their personal and professional life. Coaches use powerful questions and listening skills to help our students move from problems to challenges to opportunities.

The Fisher Professional Development Coaching program tailors each coaching experience to your interests and professional goals. Coaches serve as thought partners in your professional journey – helping you turn any problem, large or small, into an opportunity for growth – through three key experiences:

Coaching vs. Mentoring

Often times, coaching is mistaken for mentoring. Mentors show you their way, whereas coaches help you craft your own. Simply put, mentors tell and coaches listen.
