Mission to Scale

Aug 22 2022 • 45 mins

There is no handbook for creating change, but help is out there. Social entrepreneurs can benefit greatly from working with a coach to guide them towards their goals, or a mentor to help them grow in their professions.

For our season launch, we hear from two experts on coaching and mentoring changemakers. Wanjiku Nyachae is a gestalt psychotherapist, coach, mentor, and facilitator with a breadth of experience working with leaders in the social sector. Chris Underhill is a mentor who draws from his background building several nonprofits to guide other social entrepreneurs.

In this episode, we chat about the difference between therapy, coaching, and mentoring. We discuss common challenges experienced by people trying to create change and reveal what to look for when seeking a coach or mentor.

You can connect with Wanjiku by emailing her at info@cascadetherapy.co.uk and with Chris by visiting https://mentorservices.org.uk/
