Coaching Ourselves: Applying a 70-20-10 approach to learning in organizations

ODNNY presents a talk with Phil LeNir where he will give you insight into the 70/20/10 framework and how you can use it for you own practice.

July 17, 2014 5:30 PM   through   8:00 PM

For more information visit ODNNY’s website.

“It’s well understood in the field of learning and development that 70% of learning is informal, on the job, and experience based, 20% is coaching and mentoring, and 10% is comprised of formal learning interventions and structured courses. But what does this mean in practice?”

Co-founded by Phil LeNir and Henry Mintzberg in 2007, CoachingOurselves is a methodology for managers that builds community, stimulates exchange of perspectives, and encourages team cohesion. CoachingOurselves offers a novel approach to developing leaders and transforming organizations based on the 70/20/10 framework; it uses tools to explore a wide range of topics created by more than forty leading management thinkers including Henry Mintzberg, Marshall Goldsmith, David Cooperrider, and Michael Beers. ”

JOB OPPORTUNITY: PROGRAM OFFICER, Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation

The Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation, located in New York City, is an independent grantmaking foundation founded by Stella and Charles Guttman in 1959.  In calendar year 2014, the Foundation expects to make grants of approximately $2 million to nonprofit organizations in New York City.

Program Priorities

The Foundation intends to direct a substantial portion of its grantmaking to programs that serve low-income infants, toddlers and preschoolers as they transition to kindergarten.  Special emphasis will be placed on programs that improve quality, expand services and create a strong continuum of care for children ages 0-3 in high need neighborhoods.

Support may include the expansion of evidence-based home visiting programs, infant health and mental health programs and professional development for center-based teachers, as well as home-based caregivers.

Systemic investments in early childhood programs are viewed as an important first step to support neighborhoods with high levels of poverty and a large concentration of public housing.  In addition to early childhood programs, the Foundation will support organizations that work collaboratively to build a continuum of education, health and social supports for children from birth through college graduation.  The Foundation is also prepared to fund a limited number of other programs of merit that will likely promote student success at the CUNY colleges.

Key Responsibilities:

In close partnership with the Executive Director, the Program Officer will:

  • Develop the Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation’s grant portfolio
  • Perform due diligence on grant applications
  • Perform site visits, monitor and evaluate grants
  • Prepare written funding recommendations for Board review
  • Present grant recommendations to trustees at four Board meetings annually

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree (Master’s degree preferred), with at least three to five years’ previous philanthropic or nonprofit experience in New York City.  Knowledge of and interest in early childhood education is preferred.
  • Candidates must have excellent writing and analytic skills as well as organizational and administrative skills.  Ability to manage and work on multiple tasks, to review and analyze budgets.  Flexibility and skill in working as a team member in a small office are a must as the position requires working in a high demand, multiple task environment with changing priorities.
  • Strong computer skills, including knowledge of the Windows Office Suite of products, Outlook Exchange, and the Internet.

How to Apply:

Send resume, cover letter and writing sample via e-mail to: resume@guttmanfoundation.org.
