What we do: The Collegiate Leadership Coaching Committee coaches our SWE Leadership to maximize the potential of all of our sections. The CLCC was created to prevent the decline in membership and decreased program participation of our ailing sections. The CLCC focuses on reaching out to all collegiate sections on an annual basis and to promote and foster leadership and section vitality. There are currently approximately 50 Coaches across the U.S.
How we work together with collegiate sections: We would like to work with your section during this academic year and do a coaching session, either in-person or virtually. A list of specific modules is available that the CLCC has put together to specifically train SWE members and officers. You will notice that some are geared specifically towards officers, while others could be used with an entire section. Modules are modified for each section’s unique needs. When possible, sections may be coached jointly to learn from each other and collaborate on best practices. The Collegiate Leadership Coaching Committee coaches sections on how to maximize their potential. It was created to help prevent membership problems in struggling sections, but it can help healthy sections too!

Become a Leadership Coach
Any SWE member can become a Leadership Coach!
You can even be a leadership coach while you’re still in college!
Becoming a coach is a multi-year commitment, because of the training involved. But don’t worry, you can be a Leadership Coach even after you graduate! The best plus to being a Leadership Coach is that you get to travel to different sections and present at conferences! For more information, contact Heather Wiest at email@example.com.
