This is the full version of the Conservation Coaches Network Strategic Plan 2009-2012, for the executive summary version of this plan, click here.

Building on the encouraging progress made in the first four years of the Efroymson Coaches Network, this Strategic Plan outlines a course of action that aims to respond to global needs and opportunities.  It has two primary components.

  1. To enrich and strengthen the existing coaches and partner organizations skills and connections; and
  2. To lay the groundwork for a truly global and multi-organizational enterprise.

This Strategic Plan was developed through a broad consultative process led by the Network Coordinator and a Planning Team recruited from active Network Leaders, Network Coaches, and key partners and friends of the Network.  In a facilitated process, over 30 conservation leaders developed a draft Plan at a workshop held in April 2008.  Subsequent comments and feedback from all partner organizations were then incorporated. In September 2008 over 120 coaches participated in the Efroymson Network Coaches Rally in Oregon, providing additional feedback through workshop sessions on each of the key objectives.
