IRVING, Texas, April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) three-day leadership training, NSHMBA University, 100 chapter officers from around the country received intense leadership training from some of Dallas' leading business coaches free of charge. Eight members of the North Texas Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF NT) dedicated a day of one-on-one coaching sessions to NSHMBA's up and coming leaders. The event was held March 29-31 in Irving, Texas.
"Our officers are the heart and soul of this organization, and it is our mission to help them further develop their skills to strengthen their leadership abilities. Our organization would not thrive without the valuable resources our volunteer coaches provide to help us fulfill this mission," says Manuel Gonzales, CEO, National Society of Hispanic MBAs.
Eight certified executive and professional coaches spent the day at NSHMBA University providing personal coaching sessions to chapter officers on topics such as leadership competencies, community outreach and fiscal responsibility. Other topics included leading volunteer chapters, building a value proposition, developing and leading a strong team, new member marketing, fundraising, and business strategy development.
"As the country's Hispanic population grows at an exponential rate, it is critical that they are represented by innovative, motivated leaders – both in business and in the community," says Neena Newberry, president of ICF NT. "As business, life and career coaches, we educate and motivate people to maximize their potential. Partnering with NSHMBA for a day enabled us to do that in a very personal environment. It was an exciting and rewarding opportunity for all of us."
